Frank Gore, the former five-time Pro-Bowler, could be traded by the Indianapolis Colts ahead of the NFL trade deadline, per several reports.
Gore, who joined the Colts prior to the 2015-16 season, is reportedly unhappy with the current situation.
Prior to the veteran running back’s arrival, the Colts had reached the postseason for three consecutive seasons. However, the team has suffered to put together a winning record since Gore’s arrival.
It’s a safe bet that the Colts would once again miss out on the postseason this year.
On Sunday, they squandered a 23-9 lead with seven minutes left against the Houston Texans. After the defeat, Gore vented his frustrations.
“I didn’t come here for this. I came here to get into the tournament (NFL playoffs),” the RB was quoted as saying by IndyStar.

Gore’s frustration is understandable. On Sunday, he became the team’s first 100-yard rusher since 2010 before the defense allowed the Texans to storm back into the game.
Gregg Doyel, who closely follows the Colts, wrote for the IndyStar that Gore was “noticeably frustrated, almost to the point of tears” after the defeat.
Chuck Pagano, the head coach of the Colts, was animated in his response to Sunday’s loss.
“We’ll go back to work tomorrow. What else are you gonna do?”
Clearly, all is not well in the Colts’ camp.
Pagano said the team had to stop repeating the same mistakes on defense.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again, right? And getting different results. So we won’t try to go down that road.”
The Indianapolis Colts (2-4) are currently fourth in the AFC South and facing a very tough task of leapfrogging the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans for the top spot.
How long before Frank Gore demands for a trade? The RB turns 34 next May and would essentially like to be playing for a championship contender.
