Matthew Garrett Forte, renowned American football running back for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League, is in the headlines for his Twitter rants.
He was drafted by the Bears in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft and ever since then he has been one of NFL's most productive and versatile players; his performance for the team speaks for itself. Matthew Forte has rushed for 4,233 yards and 21 touchdowns on 1,014 carries. He has also caught 223 passes for 1,985 yards and eight touchdowns.
Despite all the records and great figures that he are under his belt, he has been going through a turbulent time with the Chicago Bears. The Bears have signed up former Oakland Raiders power backin a four-year deal, which has made Matthew Forte pretty insecure. Bush is being paid a hefty sum of $14 million and Forte isn’t too positive about this development. In order to displace this deal, Forte resorted to his Twitter account to make his feelings known.
His series of comments on Twitter are evident that he isn’t too happy about the new deal between Bush and the Bears. Forte tweeted, "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." He added, "But as for not taking care of ur own and undervaluing a player under his market value is another story! #twitterrant"
"I can understand where the guy's coming from," Bush responded. “Everything they've asked for, he's done. It's one of those things where you want to be rewarded for your success. I understand, but that has nothing to do with me. It'll be great working with him."
Bear’s coach, Smith, gave the assurance that "Matt is going to play his football for the Chicago Bears, you start with that. In time, hopefully, we can get an agreement in place that suits Matt, and we feel comfortable with. I think it's just a matter of time. That will happen eventually."
