|Colts, Gore agree on three-year deal -- Tue Mar 10 5:45 pm --|
Reportedly $7.5 million guaranteed
|The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent running back Frank Gore. Last season, Gore started all 16 games for the third consecutive year and registered 255 rushes for 1,106 yards and four touchdowns, while adding 11 receptions for 111 yards and one touchdown.

FF Today's Take: Gore flirted with Chip Kelly and the Eagles during the legal tampering period over the weekend leading to many false reports and bad analysis that a deal would be completed on today. Gore (31) is now a Colt where he'll likely share time with Dan Herron in the backfield behind Andrew Luck. He'll have mid-range RB2 value in the Colts high-powered offense
|Gore to the Eagles, not so fast -- Mon Mar 9 5:52 pm --|
RB re-considering his options, Colts back in the mix
|Free agent shocker: Frank Gore reconsiders potential/pending deal with the Eagles, I’m told. With negotiations still ongoing — no deals are final — keep an eye on the Colts for the coveted services of RB Frank Gore. (Ian Rapoport)|
FF Today's Take: It should serve as a reminder to all of those who reported that a deal was complete, or would be signed on Tuesday, to be more responsible in their reports and analysis. In any case, it sounds like the Colts are back in the mix for Gore's services. Should Gore find himself in Indianapolis he would likely be the lead back in a two-man RBBC with Dan Herron.
|Colts staying the course with Herron -- Mon Jan 5 4:40 pm --|
Likely in line for another heavy workload versus Denver
|The Colts (plan to) stay the course with Dan Herron in spite of the fumbles, HC Chuck Pagano says. Reducing touches might kill a guy’s confidence. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Indianapolis knows its other options aren't all that appealing, which is likely the backbone for Pagano arriving at this decision. Most NFL coaches have quick hooks when it comes to backs that have ball-security issues, so another early fumble this week could easily lead to an unexpected workload for Zurlon Tipton. With that said, expect Herron to be a key part of the Colts' game plan against the Broncos coming off his 141-total yard, 10-catch, one-touchdown performance against the Bengals.
|No carries or catches for Trent Richardson -- Mon Jan 5 8:00 am --|
Colts let Dan Herron carry the load
|Shouldering the heaviest load of his career — the Colts sat Trent Richardson for most of Sunday's win with an illness — Dan Herron responded with 141 all-purpose yards, the most from a Colts' running back in three seasons. (Indianapolis Star)|
FF Today's Take: You could see this one coming. Richardson missed practice time earlier in the week due to "illness" and while he was active on Sunday he only saw the field late in the game after Herron fumbled twice. Rookie Zurlon Tipton was the No.2 running back. Richardson is falling out of favor in Indy and can't be trusted in playoff leagues or daily formats.
