Kudos to Matt Forte for handling this like a G, as I’m sure he’ll land with a title contender. The Bears talented running back just confirmed what we all knew: his days in Chicago are over.
The running back announced on Instagram that the Bears told him they will not attempt to re-sign him.
“Despite my wishes, my days as a member of the Chicago Bears have sadly come to an end,” Forte wrote. “I was informed earlier this week from the GM that they will not be attempting to re-sign me in free agency. I will remain forever grateful for my time spent in Chicago and being able to play for an organization with such a rich history. My only regret is not being able to win a Lombardi trophy for the best fans in all of sports. I’m excited about the next chapter of my NFL career. But, Chicago will always be home. God Bless and Bear Down!”
