Gore was waived by the Commanders on Tuesday, John Keim of reports.

Gore joined the squad in July after a stint with the Saints. Best known for his run with the Chiefs in 2021, the UL Monroe product is a strong candidate to be brought back on Washington's practice squad, according to Keim.

Finds new home

Gore signed with the Commanders on Monday.

Gore was waived by the Saints in May after spending part of the season on their practice squad in 2022. The 28-year-old has only seen NFL game action in 2021 when he made 51 carries for 256 yards and two touchdowns with Kansas City. He'll work to earn a depth role in Washington's backfield, presumably behind Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson.

Gore was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Gore signed a reserve/future contract with New Orleans back in January, but he didn't make it to OTAs. The 28-year-old spent most of last season on the Saints' practice squad, and he has not played in an NFL game since 2021, when he rushed for 256 yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries.

The Saints signed Gore to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Gore joined the Saints' practice squad during the 2022 campaign after being waived by Kansas City with an injury settlement at the end of August. He totaled 59 touches for 361 yards and two scores across 11 appearances with the Chiefs last year, but he wasn't elevated for any games while with New Orleans this year. With his new contract, he'll now have a chance to compete for a roster spot during offseason work and into next year's training camp.
