    I'll believe this when I see it happen. :rolleyes: I call oom gallah gallah. :10_2_7[1]:

    Why in the world would we trade away a guy whose half the offense without a single player on the roster to take his place? On top of that Indy doesn't even have a 1st round pick! They gave that to Cleveland for Richardson. We sure as hell don't want him so why if Indy has Richardson and they've already invested a 1st round pick in him would they want to go after Forte? If Richardson is worth a #1 then Forte is worth a hell of a lot more than that.

    I dont doubt the Bears are shopping him. Every team shops their top players to see how the league values them, and if there is an incredibly stupid GM

    I do and every team doesn't shop their top players Benji. Who ever said they did? First of all it might be taken wrong by the player and second don't most GMs have enough to do at this time of the year working on real deals and preparing for the draft? I don't think they're sitting around over beer or martini's playing Madden like games asking one another what'll ya' give me for _______________.

    It's ridiculous and as dabears pointed out it's coming from a phony twitter account. In the words of Donnie Brasco....."it's a fugazzi".

    I know they are two different sports, but it is fairly normal for teams to float their players out to see if there is any interest in baseball. Makes sense if teams do that in all sports as well. A very good way to see how the league views your current player, especially in football where there may be some unreported desire to have a new contract renegotiated. Not all news about players wanting a new deal is made public.

    Everyone is potentially trade-able. I am not saying the OP is legit or desirable.

    But if we were offered a decent 1 and 2 in this draft, what do you think would happen? Not that this is remotely likely, but for the right price, anything is possible.

    I completely agree. If we were able to get a 1st and 2nd, sign as fast as ya can....but like I said during a drinking binge the mind is usually not working as fast as a level headed person would and I had a fit of rage hahaha

    Chuckster, Indy doesn't even have a number one pick in this draft. They traded it for Trent Richardson. There second is at the bottom of round two so there's no way Indy could even possibly be interested in trading for him. That's what makes the tweet so ridiculous which was probably the plan all along.

    Now if Cleveland offered their first maybe you'd have to think about it but they just signed Ben Tate so they're out too.

    Hypothetically speaking anything COULD happen but seldom does. The bottom line is the right now Forte is untradeable. RBs don't attract top picks so he's worth far more to us than anyone would give us for him.

    Not only a very good answer but a very true one at that.
