Running back Frank Gore’s decision to conduct only a short holdout doesn’t mean he has abandoned his hope for a new long-term deal.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Gore wants DeAngelo Williams money. And since Gore hasn’t gotten what he wants, he’s getting frustrated.
Currently, the two sides are far apart. The situation has been described to PFT as “volatile,” and the next step could be a trade request.
Gore, 28, has gained more than 6,400 yards on the ground in six NFL seasons. He has a career rushing average of 4.7 yards per carry.
He’s due to earn $4.9 million in 2011, the final year of his contract.
