Frank Gore is a firm believer in his quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.
Gore, the San Francisco 49ers all-time rushing king, shared his opinion of Kaepernick’s development in a recent appearance on ESPN.
“He could get a lot better,” Gore said via ProFootballTalk.com. “One thing I love about that young guy, he works. He works very hard. Even before he got the starting job he used to be the first one there and one of the last guys out. As long as he keeps learning, working from the coaches and just being him, he’ll be fine.”
It’s not the first time Gore has publically given props to the 49ers signal-caller.
Gore paid tribute to his quarterback with a “Kaepernicking” celebration in Super Bowl XLVII and told reporters this offseason that Kaepernick’s running ability opened up rushing lanes in the late stages of the season.
