Report: Frank Gore nearing agreement with Detroit Lions

49ers fans would get a chance to see him at Levi’s Stadium this fall.

Future Hall of Famer Frank Gore could get a chance to play at least one game at Levi’s Stadium in 2018. Gore is nearing an agreement with the Detroit Lions to join the team in 2018, according to NFL reporter Mike Jones.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Lions this fall, which means fans could get a chance to check out Gore at least one time. I suppose a second time is possible in the playoffs, but either way, fans will get at least one more look at him in person.

Plenty of 49ers fans would like to see Gore return to Santa Clara. He will not be joining the 49ers this year, but he has said he would be down to sign a one-day contract with the franchise when he retires. He enters 2018 a mere 75 yards back of Curtis Martin for No. 4 on the NFL’s all-time rushing leaderboard.
