9'ers/Gore reach new deal

Overall, the amount they're paying him isn't huge. I'm really suprised that Rosenhaus/Gore accepted such small base salaries.

Decent guarantees but really I think the 9ers got a good deal here.

Gore has had 1 great year so far and has a history of injuries. He is young, but this deal seems about right.

$30 million over 5 years, very solid signing for both sides. Gore is now getting the guaranteed money and the contract as if he was a first round pick. Smart move for him considering all the injuries he's had throughout the career. Lesser men would have packed it in before they even hit the NFL though.

I'm well aware of his injury history. This deal locks him up through essentially all of his prime though. If I had to guess, they're worried that without Norv he won't produce as well and he'ed be looking at a deal less than this in FA next season.

The problem I have is, if he performs well again for the next two years, he'll be a candidate for a Rosenhaus hold out. Thats what I'm ultimately worried about.

Kensat is right though, good guarantees and salary on par with a first round pick.

yep, it's a good deal for Gore and the 49ers as they were able to lock him up. B-) (pray that no injury happens B-) )

Good deal for both sides. The Niners lock Gore up for a reasonable price, and Gore gets rewarded for last year's performance and should be a happy Frank headed into camp.

The NFC West may not have any "powerhouses", but it's looking to be a very competitive division next year.
