For a bell-cow back who has led his team in carries every season, that lessened workload will be a bit of a change.

"I'm cool", Gore added.

Buffalo Bills players react after downing a punt during the second quarter of an National Football League game against the Baltimore Ravens at New Era Field on December 08, 2019 in Orchard Park, New York. I'm happy that this organization gave me an opportunity. Once Buffalo started playing the younger guy [Devin Singletary], I felt like I still could do it.

Frank Gore was introduced as a member of the New York Jets after signing a one-year contract.

The five-time Pro Bowler has reunited with head coach Adam Gase following the pair's time together in Miami, while the latter's relationship with star Le'Veon Bell has dominated headlines. "When everybody's on the same page, we can make something happen". "Adam's very smart", Gore said of Gase. I don't know what Miami is doing or whatever. "He's a man of his word".

Gore is more than aware of the role he's signing up for with the Jets.

Gore has yet to speak with Bell since signing with NY, but insists the two will be fine working in the same backfield. Gore also sought out Bell last season after the regular-season finale to get his jersey to frame for his wall.

If the Jets are to be the team to finally end the Patriots' streak of dominance, they will need a lot more out of Sam Darnold and Bell than they got last season. "I've been around a bunch of talented running backs my whole career, even in college, the NFL".

"Me and him wake up and go out there six, seven o'clock in the morning".

Nevertheless, after deciding to return for his 16th season in the NFL, Gore was considering multiple teams in free agency. The Patriots have won 11 consecutive division titles, and three Super Bowl championships during that period, thanks to the superstar quarterback. "Brady is gone and he's wide open".

Although he set career lows in rushing yards (599) and yards per carry (3.6) in 2019, Gore said he never considered retirement.

"I think it's wide open", Gore said of the division, during a Thursday video chat with reporters. "Whenever I get my number called I'm just going to try to make a play for our team to be successful".
