Report: 49ers RB Frank Gore Has ‘Snapped’ at Assistant Coaches Over Contract Frustrations
San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore has expressed his frustrations numerous times over the last few weeks about his contract situation and will meet with the organization on Monday to see if the two sides can work something out. Apparently, Gore’s frustrations have been so bad–he’s taken it out on some of his coaches.
According to Maiocco Archive of CSNBayArea.com, Gore has “snapped” at some of the 49ers’ assistant coaches over the last couple of weeks during practices. Archive also claims Gore’s frustrated with the fact that he’s been more at risk for injury by playing more this preseason than usual to prove how effective of a running back he is and the organization still has yet to make an offer for an extension.
From Archive’s article:
One team source said Gore has uncharacteristically “snapped” at some of the team’s assistant coaches as his concern has grown over not receiving a contract extension. Gore is signed through the upcoming season at approximately $5 million.
Gore is not pleased he has played more in the exhibition season than in previous years, which puts him more at risk for injury while he awaits a new contract, the source said. Gore said this week he wants a contract extension prior to the start of the regular season so he can concentrate solely on playing football.
Prior to 2010, Gore managed to record at least 1,400 yards from the line of scrimmage in each of his last four seasons and managed to record 853 rushing yards in the 11 games he played in last season. All of a sudden, Monday’s meeting with Gore and the 49ers may be key as to where the running back plays next season.
If things don’t go well on Monday–there’s a good chance Gore will request a trade to a team that is willing to pay him the type of money he’s looking for.
