It appears as if the Chicago Bears are already preparing to throw in the towel on the 2015 NFL season, after trading away Jared Allen and Jon Bostic last week. Shortly after those deals, Willie Young reportedly asked for a trade and the rumors circulating through the football world insist that the team is listening to offers for Matt Forte. Chicago is not simply going to give Forte away but, they will certainly move him for the right offer. The question is, which team is most in need of acquiring the 30-year-old versatile running back from the Bears?
When it comes to landing big names, you always have to figure that the Dallas Cowboys are going to make some noise. Jerry Jones does not enjoy being outbid for anything. One time, I even heard that he tracked down a user on eBay who outbid him for a box of Mr. T cereal. Whew. When it comes to speculating on marquee names, the Cowboys are like the New York Yankees. Whether or not they have serious interest, the rumors will persist while the team at least does its due diligence. In this case, the Cowboys have been less than thrilled with Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden. If Forte does become available, expect the Cowboys to make a phone call.
