I wish the Saints would make a run. He would be incredible in a Patriots uniform.

Pretty funny watching McGinest try to start off his question with the intention of implying that "later in your career it's not about the contract but winning Super Bowls" and tries to use himself as an example.

Then, mid-sentence he realizes that he left the Patriots for the Browns.............for the $$$$.

No longer a Bear. Team elects not to re-sign him.

Good for him, his talent was not being used to best advantage in that offense. Still got plenty left in the tank.

I can see him landing in Seattle or NE. Hope he gets a ring.

Matt will be able to pick his destination. There's quite a few teams that need a RB that can catch, too.

It's being reported all over the New York Area that he's going to the Jets. So much for Forte winning a Super Bowl, at least not with the Jets.

If NE or Seattle was not interested maybe his options were limited and NYJ offered the best guaranteed contract...he ain't gettin' no younger...that way he can donate more to TAF

Congrats to him. He had a good career. May he stay healthy after the pounding he took playing on such bad teams.
