The Bears have made their first big off-season headlines with the expected free-agent signing of Allen Robinson from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bears GM Ryan Pace said the team plans to have Robinson play "wide receiver," which is an innovative new position the team just discovered.
"When you can get a player of Matt Forte's quality, you go out and do it," said Bears GM Ryan Pace, who let Forte walk after the 2015 season, "Even though he's announced he's no longer going to play, getting Matt in exchange for a fourth-round pick is a steal."
“Under coach Nagy’s tutelage, we hope to have the chance to hold a clipboard on the sidelines, acting as if we’re interested, and being inactive for most games while collecting a combined $12 million next season,” the pair said in a joint statement.
"The K.C. offense was clicking on all cylinders that first half," said Pace. "I sent Matt an offer at halftime and he immediately agreed."
"Matt threw for 374 TDs in only six seasons of Arena League football," said GM Ryan Pace, who's secretly a huge Arena League fan. "He had 85 TDs in one season. With output like that, he'd be one of the best QBs in NFL history."
"There are a lot of great candidates out there," said GM Ryan Pace, who just had his contract extended three seasons. "This is where we have to ask ourselves: 'Which of these guys is the perfect coach to fire after three mediocre seasons?'"
What they discovered was that due to what insiders are calling an "undiscovered clerical error," Fox's contract was never properly executed and therefore he hadn't actually been hired to coach the team in 2015. Fox's employment was immediately nullified.
