The San Diego Fleet of the new spring football league called the Alliance of American Football announced that they signed former Clemson offensive tackle Joe Gore on Thursday.
Gore earned third-team All-ACC honors in the 2015 run to the first College Football Playoff berth in school history.
He played 1,252 snaps over 34 games with 16 starts as a Tiger. Gore at one point had signed a contract with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent.
The Fleet open play on the road at San Antonio on Feb. 9 (8 p.m. ET start/CBS is slated to carry one of two AAF primetime games that night).
San Diego is coached by Mike Martz, who won a Super Bowl with the former St. Louis Rams and last coached professionally in 2011 (Chicago Bears offensive coordinator).
