Jets replace Ivory with Matt Forte-- Wed Mar 9 4:10 pm --
30 year-old RB lands in New York
Running back Matt Forte has agreed to a contract with the New York Jets, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Forte will replace Chris Ivory, who has agreed to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
FF Today's Take:Forte missed three games last season with a knee injury but was still productive at 30 years of age. It remains to be seen if Bilal Powell will be re-signed, but Forte is projected to be the lead back in any committee situation. He'll be on the RB2 radar in redraft leagues this Summer.
Bears moving on from Matt Forte-- Fri Feb 12 11:30 am --
Jeremy Langford penciled in as starter
"Despite my wishes, my days as a member of the Chicago Bears have sadly come to an end. I was informed earlier this week from the GM that they will not be attempting to re-sign me in free agency."(Matt Forte on Instagram)
FF Today's Take:Forte took to Instagram to reveal what we've been speculating since the season came to an end. The Bears will move on from Matt Forte and head into the off-season with Jeremy Langford penciled in as the lead running back. Forte will be on the top running back options in the free agent market and makes sense for teams like New England, Baltimore, and Dallas.
