Even though Frank Gore’s ironman streak Antworten

MIAMI (AP) — is about to end Mark Duper Jersey , he wants to keep going.The injured Miami Dolphins running back has decided against retirement and hopes to play a 15th NFL season next year, a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The person confirmed the decision to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Gore had not commented publicly.The NFL’s leading active rusher suffered a season-ending sprained foot last week against Minnesota , but the injury won’t require surgery. The 35-year-old Gore has played in 126 consecutive games with 122 starts in a row.Those streaks are the longest by an NFL offensive skill player, and they’ll end Sunday when Miami plays Jacksonville .Last week Gore said he was uncertain whether he wanted to play next year. He signed a one-year contract in March with the Dolphins, and another season with his hometown team is a possibility.“We’ll sit down after the season is over. We’re not in a rush right now,” coach Adam Gase said. “There were times in the season where I could tell he’s not ready to be close to it being done. We’ll sit down and talk about everything and figure it out.”Gore leads the Dolphins with 722 yards rushing, and his average of 4.6 yards per carry is his highest since 2012. He went on injured reserve Wednesday.“It’s disappointing considering the amount of games, the amount of starts that he’s had in a row Mark Clayton Jersey ,” Gase said. “I wish he could’ve finished this out.”Gore is fourth on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 14,748 yards, and fifth in yards from scrimmage. Since turning 32 in 2015, he’s the league’s fifth-leading rusher.“He’s a special person; he’s a special player,” Gase said. “It’s hard to find somebody that’s really done anything comparable to him, especially the way football is now and how he’s run early in his career. To last this long and then to produce the way he has at this age is just something you just probably won’t ever see again.” The Cowboys expect to have DeMarcus Lawrence signed to a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline. They hope to have Randy Gregory reinstated from an indefinite suspension before the start of the season.Nothing, though, is guaranteed.So the Cowboys pulled the trigger on a trade for Robert Quinn Adam Joseph Duhe Jersey , giving up a sixth-round pick in 2020 to Miami.“Obviously, defensive line with our challenges we’ve had with Randy — I think Randy is back on it and really doing a great job of getting himself in a position where hopefully he can get back at some point and help us out — but with that unknown being there, and of course, having the same situation with David Irving,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the team website. “We, of course, don’t have DeMarcus Lawrence signed yet either. We really felt like we needed to shore that up. DLaw, of course Larry Csonka Jersey , comes off that left spot, and the right end spot having a question mark is a big deal to us.“Certainly, Robert probably has a few more skins than Randy. He’s been in the league quite a bit longer. But it’s real important as we all know to get pressure on the passer. Really felt like he fit our system. We were fortunate the Dolphins are moving to a 3-4 scheme down there, which really doesn’t fit what Robert does. It just so happened there was a good opportunity there. I think he really fits Rod [Marinelli] and what he’s all about. I think Randy really felt it’d be a good way for him — he wanted to play under a one-year deal — to get with Rod and felt like he could really flourish at the right end spot in our scheme.” Jones, who said earlier this week the Cowboys were at an impasse with Lawrence, said the acquisition of Quinn does not affect their negotiations with Lawrence. “No, we’re motivated to get this deal done with DeMarcus Lawrence,” Jones said. “He’s obviously a guy who’s been here Dan Marino Jersey , home-grown, who plays the game the way we like to see the game played. Obviously, he’s learned under Rod, and he plays the way Rod would like to see a defensive lineman play. He’ll come off that left side, and Robert Quinn coming off the right with Randy, and mixing a few of them down inside, is nothing but a positive for us.”
