Matt Forte Retires
28 Feb
Not in Hall of Fame
A significant retirement has taken place in the National Football League as Running Back Matt Forte has announced his retirement in a statement to Sports Spectrum.

Selected in the 2nd Round out of Tulane, Forte quickly assumed the starting Running Back job in Chicago where he would accrue his first of five 1,000 Yard seasons. Forte would prove to be a versatile back as he was a receiving threat going for 50 or more receptions in his first four seasons and in 2014, he would catch over 100 passes.

A two time Pro Bowl selection, Forte was in the top ten in Yards from Scrimmage five times and retires with 14,468, which is good enough for 28th all-time. He would spend his first eight years with the Bears and his final two with the New York Jets.

Forte might be a considered a fringe candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, of which he is eligible in 2023.

We here at would like to thank Matt Forte for the gridiron memories!
