It’s gotta be the week going into the Super Bowl,” Gore told Good Morning Football, in reference to the possibility of once again toting the rock.

Though he hasn’t officially retired, Gore — who’s third on the NFL’s all-time rushing list and has received calls from interested teams — seems unlikely to lace up the cleats again. He can think of only one scenario that may change this mind.

If they going to the Super Bowl, I’m all-in,” added Gore. “I love the game of football…But man, I’ve been in a good place.

A Super Bowl win is about the only thing Gore wasn’t able to accomplish during his playing days. He won a national championship in college while playing for Miami, was a five-time Pro Bowler and was named to the NFL’s 2010s All-Decade team.

Though it won’t be a Super Bowl ring, Gore will soon have an opportunity to add to his list of achievements. He’s scheduled to make his pro boxing debut against former NBA All-Star Deron Williams on December 18th.

Win or lose, the year-end bout would allow Gore roughly two months to recover in the event a Super Bowl-bound team is need of a running back drive-by.
