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.
