    Until NFL free agency opens on March 13th, I will be reviewing the impending free agents on the Miami Dolphins and evaluating whether or not the team should retain them, tag them, or let them walk. When front offices choose how to handle their upcoming free agents, they take a variety of factors into account, including age, production, and value, so I will be doing the same. Today, we begin with the ageless legend, Frank Gore.

    Hope he stays, said he wants to return but I don't want him overused like Gase used him.

    No thanks. Let him follow Adam Gase somewhere.

    I love Frank and he had a great year, but why pay him with Drake, Ballage, and Bolden back there? Let them carry the ball and use that money up front.

    If they really want to rebuild then he's gone. Keeping him just take away snaps from Drake and Ballage at this point. What for? We're tanking anyway.

    I love Gore, but we're rebuilding. I'd rather the young guys play.

    Keep him as a short yardage back, goal line plower. Rebuild doesnt mean you toss everyone out.

    Gore is tough, keep him for 3rd and 1 plays. He played better than Drake and Ballage anyway, no need to stop

    If we are building for the future, gotta let him walk. Great player though!

    I like him as a player, but just dont see how he fits in here. I also think Drake should be the feature back.

    If we are rebuilding time to let him go, let the kids play

    I would keep Gore, but with the understanding that he won't be the focus. Drake and Ballage should both be featured a lot more. If Gore is good with that, I'd love to have him on the team.

    Gore is the only old man I'm totally okay with us keeping for 1 more year. Him breaking records could be one of the only reasons to watch this team next year.
