SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Frank Gore says his agent is gone after what he considered a productive, all-day meeting Monday with the 49ers about a new contract for the two-time Pro Bowl running back.
Gore would not say Tuesday whether an initial proposal was made, only that he has instructed agent Drew Rosenhaus to let him know when there is what he considers a “fair” offer on the table. That hadn’t happened yet to Gore’s knowledge.
The 28-year-old Gore, third on San Francisco’s career rushing list heading into his seventh NFL season, has said he hopes for a new long-term deal before the Sept. 11 season opener against Seattle.
Rosenhaus’ office said it had no comment, and Rosenhaus didn’t immediately return an email from The Associated Press.
