Matt Forte Announces Retirement

New York Jets running back Matt Forte announced his retirement from football on Wednesday. In his two seasons with New York, Forte looked his age and battled through various nagging injuries that left him far less than 100 percent. But in his eight seasons with the Bears, Forte became one of the most versatile three-down backs in the NFL, racking up over 1,000 yards on the ground five different seasons. With him gone in New York, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire figure to split the backfield duties in 2018, although Gang Green could also address the position in the draft.

Matt Forte Wants To Keep Playing

New York Jets running back Matt Forte plans to continue playing next season. Forte has been set back with knee injuries the last two years. He remained effective in the pass game when on the field in 2017, but the Jets are not expected to keep him at his $4 million cap number. Forte should draw committee interest if he is released this offseason.

Matt Forte Likely Out Of New York

New York Jets running back Matt Forte is likely out of New York, as ESPN's Rich Cimini reports Forte's "days are numbered" with the Jets. Hampered by a knee injury which did not allow him to practice and eventually landed him on Injured Reserve ahead of Week 17, Forte rushed for just 381 yards and two scores on 103 carries. He did continue to add value in the passing game, but the Jets need to get younger at running back. Cutting Forte will save New York $3 million against the salary cap.
