I'll Be Unhappy Without a New Contract: Frank Gore

The 49ers running back says he will test free agency if the team does not give him a contract extension before the new season starts.

Jim Harbaugh says there is no problem but Frank Gore begs to differ.

The Two-time Pro Bowl running back Monday said talks with the San Francisco 49ers over a contract extension are "going slow" and he would be upset if he does not get a new deal before the start of the regular season.

Gore also said he will test free agency next season if the 49ers don't give him a contract extension.
He declined to comment when asked if he would request a trade if there wasn't an extension in place by the regular-season opener against Seattle on Sept. 11.

The 28-year-old missed the final five games last season after he fractured his right hip in a Monday night game at Arizona on Nov. 29, but insists he is fully healthy now. He is in the final year of his deal.

He also briefly held out at the beginning of training camp to demand a new contract. Gore is in the last year of his contract and is scheduled to make just under $5 million.
