Miami Hurricanes Football: Welcome Home Frank Gore!

Miami legend Frank Gore returns home to play for the Dolphins.

NFL: Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Former Miami Hurricane running back Frank Gore has returned to Miami to play for the Dolphins one a one year pact. Gore played for the Hurricanes from 2001-2004, he was a back up to Clinton Portis on the 2001 National Championship team.

Gore has had a very successful NFL career thus far being a model of consistency. He may not be the feature back that he was in his prime, but he can still get it done at the age of 34.

The Dolphins have been looking for RB help all off-season and have considered other veteran options, but ultimately decided to bring in Gore. Gore may be seen as a mentor to young RB Kenyan Drake, but Gore can still be a useful player who can pass protect on 3rd downs and get you the tough yards in the goal-line.

It’s amazing to see Gore finish off his career in Miami where he started his football playing career. He can also be closer to his son, Frank Gore Jr. who is one of the top RB in South Florida. I personally am very excited to see Gore back home and hope he can add some much needed leadership to the Miami Dolphins.

Welcome Home Frank Gore!
