Frank Gore agrees on 3-year extension with 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Frank Gore has his new deal from the San Francisco 49ers, 13 days before the season opener. Just as he wished it.

Agent Jason Rosenhaus told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Gore had agreed to terms on a new three-year contract extension that keeps him with the team through 2014.

Gore is set to make $21 million, with $13.5 million in guaranteed money.

The team hadn’t made a formal announcement. That likely will come Wednesday ahead of the Niners’ exhibition finale Thursday night at San Diego.

Gore said earlier Tuesday that his primary agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had a productive, all-day meeting with team brass Monday. Gore said he instructed Rosenhaus to contact him when there was what he considered a “fair” offer on the table.

“Positive that they met face to face,” Gore said. “Drew felt good about everything, (about) the talk.”

The 28-year-old Gore, third on San Francisco’s career rushing list heading into his seventh NFL season, had repeatedly said he wanted a new long-term deal before the Sept. 11 season opener against Seattle.

Both sides had been throwing around plenty of praise for the other party. 49ers team President Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke said they wanted Gore to be a “49er for life.”
