SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers say running back Frank Gore will return to the team Monday after missing the first four days of training camp due to a holdout.
A team spokesman confirmed late Sunday that Gore has spoken with coach Jim Harbaugh and has decided to practice while he attempts to negotiate a contract extension with the team. Gore is scheduled to earn $2.9 million in base salary and $2 million in a roster bonus during the final season of his current deal.
Under the terms of the NFL’s new labor agreement, Gore is subject to $90,000 in fines for his holdout. The 49ers are off Monday, putting Gore back on the field with the team on Tuesday.
