Ok thats not true but I bet Angelo diddles kids all on his own. Here he is saying more of the same no doubt trying to paint himself as not the bad guy. I am so torn between wanting the Bears to be good and wanting to suck so we can get rid Angelo. It has to happen sometime, but a 4-12 season stings so hard every Sunday
He’ll turn 26 in December, when he’ll near the end of his four-year, $3.7 million rookie contract with the Bears. A second-round pick in 2008, Forte makes $600,000 this season, the league minimum for a player with his NFL experience. His current backup, Marion Barber, is making $2.25 million this season, and his previous backup, Chester Taylor, walked away with $7 million because the Bears terminated his four-year deal after just one season in September.
Forte is on pace to threaten Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson’s record of 2,509 yards from scrimmage set in 2009.
