Michael Bush scheduled to receive $7M guaranteed from Bears. Matt Forte scheduled to receive $7.7M guaranteed from Bears…for now.

Even though he has been the biggest part of their offense for quite sometime, Chicago Bears’ management and coaching has never loved running back Matt Forte. They continued to prove that on Thursday by signing former Raider, Michael Bush.
Bush is a punishing back and combined with Forte, the Bears running game has to be one of the most dangerous in the NFL.
With that said we can’t imagine how Forte must have felt when he first heard the news, especially when the team is unable to give him the contract he deserves.

Michael Bush will be solid investment for #Bears in event long-term deal doesn't materialize for Matt Forte.

Michael Bush to the Bears? I just threw up in my mouth. This hurts him AND Matt Forte. Awful. Just awful.

"Forte" means 'Michael Bush got my money' in French.

another solid move from emery to bring in michael bush. gives the #bears leverage with forte and a legit fall back should he hold out.

Da Bears sign Michael Bush, get Brandon Marshall via trade, healthy Forte & Cutler, Hester, Knox. Good defense. Team is dangerous.
