Matt Forte Close To Signing

New, comments

The Bears are closing in on once again being the first team to sign all their draft picks.  This would be the third and most improbable year considering the number of picks they had, 12 (Most in NFC).

The Bears are nearing a deal with second round pick Matt Forte.  A deal is expected to be done tonight.

That leaves only first round selection Chris Williams; however, it is also being reported that the Bears are in "aggressive" negotiations with him and a deal could be reached as early as Friday.

I know we have a lot of issues with management and how they do things, but this as well as signing our own players, within reason, to deals are two areas they have excelled.
