NFL Notes: Matt Forte, Dolphins, Buccaneers, & Seahawks


Matt Forte

Bears RB Matt Forte mentioned during an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show Tuesday that he doesn’t think he’s going to get traded in the next few weeks.

I don’t worry about those things,” Forte said. “A lot of it is media speculation, just like in the offseason they were like ‘the Bears could trade Matt.’ Everybody was talking about me getting traded then and it didn’t happen. Now after one guy gets traded, it all comes back again. I can’t control that either. They can trade me if they want to. I don’t think I’m going anywhere, but I can only control how I play on the football field and that’s what I do.
