I take Bob's tweets with a grain of salt, but he does stir stuff up.  That being said, Matt Forte DESERVES to be traded....the morons in the Chicago FO have jerked him around for years.  The guy is a gamer & produces 70-80% of their offense & yet they refuse to give him a long term deal.  He could've sat around & cried about it (a la DeSean Jackson), but instead he played his butt off and had an incredible year.  Forte is pissed about the whole situation & rightfully so.....Bears don't deserve him.

I hope the Bucs can pull off a trade like this but I dnt see it happening.

Da bears would have to be crazy to trade him.

Bob is very reliable.... i've been following him for a long time.... he doesn't just talk to talk.... I hope we get can Forte... that puts us in position to hopefully either pick Claiborne or Blackmon with 5th pick

Nabbing Forte would allow us to undoubtedly take Claiborne if hes there or trade down if not. Even reach for a guy they really like in R1 if needed.

I assume the pursuit of Forte will go something like this:

4 years in the league and really more important 1000+ carries and 200+ receptions so he's young but does have a lot of wear on the treads plus he's been hurt.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Don't forget we'd have to sign him to a new contract.

Does anyone know how much cap space we have after the recent transactions?

I like him but he's been used a lot and has had some injuries. I'd rather have Martin.
