Still No Movement Regarding Matt Forte

Last week there were rumors that Bears RB Matt Forte could be traded as the two sides have yet to find much of any middle ground in negotiations.

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo mentioned yesterday that nothing has changed despite Forte continuing to produce for them.

There really is nothing new,” Angelo said, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “We did what I consider our very best. I know that they tried as well. We weren’t able to get it accomplished. He was our No. 1 priority. We spent a lot of time during the preseason trying to get it done and right now our focus is on the season.

Angelo continues to stand by his decision to draw the line regarding Forte but this isn’t exactly doing all that much to endear him to Bears fans.

The Bears are not going to trade Lance Briggs who is under contract for another two seasons (2013) but they’re definitely willing to move Chris Harris.

Reports mentioned that the Bears would be lucky to get a seventh round pick in return for him so it’s hard to expect much. If the Bears do anything, it’s going to be to address their o-line or the safety positions. The… Read more »
