Report: Bears, RB Matt Forte Agree To Halt Contract Talks

No more Forte controversy.

Bears sideline reporter Zach Zaidman has reported via Twitter that Bears general manager Jerry Angelo told WBBM that the Bears and running back Matt Forte’s representatives have both agreed to stop negotiating until the end of the season:

“We’ve spent a lot of time trying to work out an extension with Matt, and his agent did as much work as he could do. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to come to an agreement at this point, so we’ve decided that we’re just going to focus on the season,” Bears general manager Jerry Angelo told WBBM radio on Monday night. ” That’s something we talked about when we went into the negotiations.

We were hopeful. Not saying the door is shut. But right now our focus is going to be on the season.”

I hope Lance Briggs is taking notes.
