Bears Signing Matt Forte & Devin Hester To One-Day Contracts To Retire With Chicago
The Chicago Bears announced Wednesday that they’re signing RB Matt Forte and WR/KR Devin Hester to one-day contracts next week to retire as members of the franchise.
This explains why the Jets recently released Forte.
Forte, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Bears back in 2008. He spent eight years in Chicago before signing a three-year, $12 million contract that contained $8 million guaranteed with the Jets in 2016.
We have been in this same situation a year [ago], playing in Boston, being down 2-0 early and then winning the next two and making it into a seven-game series, Beal said.
We got to go back to the drawing board, he added. Get two at home, take care of our house and keep our hopes alive.
The Bengals let safety Eric Reid leave without a contract offer after Mike Brown asked him about his stance (though Reid had said previously he wasn’t sure he was going to continue).
If the Seahawks hesitated because of concerns about his political stance, it does nothing to lessen Kaepernick’s collusion case, since there’s no reason for a team to ask such a question during a job interview.
There’s no doubt about the Seahawks need for a quarterback, just as there hasn’t been for some time. But the fact they were willing to make compliance a precondition for employment crystallizes the reality that teams are definitely afraid of angering whatever percentage of their fan base prefers their version of patriotism to civil liberties.
