Former 49ers running back Frank Gore selling Santa Clara home for $1.3M

Former 49ers running back Frank Gore selling Santa Clara home for $1.3M

Frank Gore hasn't played for the 49ers since 2014, so it's no surprise he's selling his Santa Clara townhouse. 

Gore, now with the Bills, lists his former home for $1.3 million, Claudine Zap of Realtor.com reported Friday. The 36-year-old running back originally bought the property for $860,000 back in 2007, his third season with the 49ers. 

The 1,242-square foot home holds three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Outside, there is a deck full of seating for relaxation or a dining area.

NFL rumors: Giants, Dolphins most active in Josh Rosen trade talks

NFL rumors: Giants, Dolphins most active in Josh Rosen trade talks

If the Cardinals do indeed turn to quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to run Kliff Kingsbury's offense, it would presumably put an end to Josh Rosen's career in Arizona.

So, who makes sense as a trade partner for the Cardinals and their current quarterback? With the draft only a few days away, ESPN's Todd McShay has heard two teams have surfaced the most in trade discussions: the Giants and Dolphins. 

The Giants could have chosen Rosen with the No. 2 pick in the draft last year but opted for running back Saquon Barkley. In this scenario, however, they could have a young nucleus of Rosen and Barkley on offense while possibly having Eli Manning for one last season under center. 

Miami is an interesting case as well. The Dolphins signed veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick on a two-year contract this offseason, though he's much more of a career backup. Rosen could learn from Fitzpatrick and then take over the offense.

The Dolphins could also be targeting a quarterback in next year's draft like Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa or Oregon's Justin Herbert. 

There's also the chance that the Cardinals simply hold onto Rosen, and select a top defensive prospect like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams with the No. 1 pick. Arizona has received "trade feelers" for the No. 1 pick, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported on Monday, and the team will meet in the next day or so to finalize plans going into Thursday's draft.

The price for the 49ers' No. 2 pick would certainly go up if the Cardinals passed on Murray. San Francisco could then move back in the draft and net two first-round picks this year

Even if the 49ers move back from No. 2, they could find the pass rusher and offensive weapon for Jimmy Garoppolo they desire.

While the 49ers are set at quarterback, their whole draft will be affected by what the Cardinals decide to do with their QB.

We shall see ...

Frank Gore wants to retire as member of 49ers when NFL career is over

Frank Gore isn't ready for the final chapter of his NFL career.

The veteran running back signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills in free agency, and he still thinks he has a lot left in the tank. Once it reaches empty, Gore knows exactly where he wants to be: With the 49ers.

"[I was] there 10 years, man," Gore told Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game on Friday. "They was the ones that gave me the first opportunity to play in the [NFL]. Coming out of college I was injured, and they still gave me the opportunity to get to that level I always wanted to get to as a kid." 

"I started there, and I'm going to finish there. When I'm done, whenever I feel like I'm done, I'm gonna come back and retire as a Niner."

The 49ers drafted Frank Gore in the third round out of the University of Miami in 2005. Gore tore his left ACL twice while with the Hurricanes, and there were questions about his durability. 

Now, Gore is entering his 15th NFL season. With 14,748 rushing yards, he ranks fourth on the league's all-time rushing list. Gore needs just 521 yards to pass Barry Sanders for third.

The Bills will be Gore's third team in the last three seasons, but he will be best remembered for his decade with the 49ers. He rushed for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns in 148 games -- each of which is a team record -- with San Francisco. Gore wasn't exactly a compiler, either, as his 74.8 rushing yards per game are the second-most in franchise history. 

His No. 21 is a lock to be retired once he hangs up his cleats, and Gore seems to know that as well as anyone.
