Pro Football Star’s Harsh Twitter Rant
March 24, 2012 by staff
Pro Football Star’s Harsh Twitter Rant, Since he came into the NFL in 2008, Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte has been one of the NFL’s most productive and versatile players. Not only has he rushed for 4,233 yards and 21 touchdowns on 1,014 carries, he’s also caught 223 passes for 1,985 yards and eight touchdowns in an offense that has often asked him to be the Bears’ most reliable (and sometime only legitimate) receiver.
However, Forte and the Bears have been playing contract footsie for quite some time, and the team’s Thursday signing of former Oakland Raiders power back Michael Bush to a four-year, apparently didn’t help the situation. In lieu of a long-term deal with Forte, the Bears slapped the franchise tag on him, guaranteeing the Tulane alum $7.74 million in the 2012 season. But between Bush’s new deal — which could net up to $14 million — and the franchise designation — Forte feels very out of place. After the Bush deal was made public, Forte turned to his Twitter account to make his feelings known.
There’s only so many times a man that has done everything he’s been asked to do can be disrespected! Guess the GOOD GUYS do finish last…
for the record I’m not mad at the signing of another running back. This is 4th time that’s happened. I embrace competition as well as help
But as for not taking care of ur own and undervaluing a player under his market value is another story! #twitterrant”
