According to a report from Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, the Eagles have offered a contract to soon-to-be free agent running back Frank Gore. Here's what Getlin had to say:

"Source indicates the 49ers are bracing to lose Frank Gore. Has an offer on the table from the Eagles averaging $5M+, $7M in guarantees."

This isn't the first time the Eagles are rumored to be interested in Gore. A report from Eliot Shorr-Parks of emerged on Saturday evening indicating the Philadelphia is going after the 31-year-old rusher. The report also indicated that Gore has mutual interest in joining the Eagles.

Gore has been in the league since the San Francisco 49ers drafted him in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. In 148 career games, he's rushed for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns on 2442 attempts for a career average of 4.5. He's also recorded 342 receptions for 2,883 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Running backs typically don't age well. Gore might be a bit of an exception. He's only played in less than 12 games in one season, and that was 2011. In 2014, he rushed for 1,106 yards and four touchdown on 255 carries for a 4.3 average.

The Eagles are targeting Gore to replace LeSean McCoy, whom the team traded to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for Kiko Alonso last week.
