It’s being reported that Frank Gore is demanding a trade if he doesn’t get the contract he wants. This is an interesting moment for the Niners. Do they pay him a lot or trade him? There is no easy answer. I will say this — Bill Walsh generally traded players sooner rather than later. He did not want to pay them for previous service rendered when they were on the downside of their careers.
My gut feeling tells me the Niners could get high draft picks or a very good player for Gore. I think they should trade him. But I am a little uneasy writing that because he is a very good player.
Can you help me on this? What do you think the Niners should do?
