Colts confirm they won’t re-sign Frank Gore
As expected, the Colts are moving on from Frank Gore. General Manager Chris Ballard confirmed Wednesday that Indianapolis won’t re-sign Gore, who becomes a free agent next month.
We had a discussion; we did multiple times during the season, Ballard said. Frank knows we’re at a point we need to get younger and look, I want to give Frank a chance to go see what’s our there and see if he finishes in a place he wants to finish it. He’s a Hall of Famer player in my mind, without question a first-ballot Hall of Fame player.
Witten could very well continue with the Cowboys. Palmer also will be considered for a number of spots.
On Wednesday, future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas retired from the Browns. Thomas already has auditioned with Fox and ESPN this offseason, according to sources. Fox was left very impressed. Thomas’ studio work was said to be even more impressive than his game analysis, though both graded out well. Thomas could be an option for either.
The Cowboys allowed NFL Films cameras into their facility throughout the 2017 season for the eight-episode show. That means we’ll see how the team dealt with high expectations, the ultimate disappointment of missing the playoffs, and the Ezekiel Elliott case, in which a bitter fight with the league ended with the star running back serving a six-game suspension.
This season should be a test of just how much All or Nothing will show: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones attempted to derail NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract extension last year. Will All or Nothing give fans an inside look at that? Or will the NFL Films-produced show pull some punches?
If the show truly gives all access, it should be tremendously informative, and entertaining.
As far as character, Barkley is pristine. His 15-minute session with the media at the combine was impeccable a mixture of modesty, confidence and well-prepared responses that came across as genuine, not scripted.
