Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune believes it’s unlikely the Bears will trade running back Matt Forte, but he also doesn’t believe it can be completely ruled out either.
As Pompei points out, the problem with trading Forte is that the Bears would still need to sign him to the long-term deal that he desires and they don’t want to pay him. But if a team was willing to make the Bears an offer they couldn’t refuse, it could happen.
In the end, the best move for the Bears would be to trade him away for in order to receive some type of compensation in return for him.

If you want to pick the Chicago Bears to lose a game, take a Monday Night Football road game in December. Forget the myth about “Bear Weather,” Chicago is just not very good in the late season when it’s cold, and pretty awful on Monday night- usually. Only one of their three MNFers is late in the year however, Nov. 19th at San Francisco. (Cue the memories of the 1984 and 1988...
