First there was speculation that the Green Bay Packers were interested. Then there was a report of Julius Peppers recruiting him. Now, the Green Bay Packers have formally expressed interest in Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte.
Packers expressing interest in Bears free-agent RB Matt Forte, per source.

What does that mean?
Well, it means that you and I aren’t just pontificating about whether the Packers are interested in Forte. It means that someone in Green Bay who works for the Packers has actually reached out to someone in Forte’s camp and said, “Hey, we’re interested in your guy.”
Interest alone means nothing, of course.
I’m interested in Elle Macpherson.
Whether the Packers will present an actual offer that might sway Forte to join the team remains to be seen.
“I’m interested in Elle Macpherson.” ….
Live from my bookshelf, Adam Schefter, ESPN.
He can continue to be the career leader in total yards at Lambeau. He used to run for 200 every time he was in town.
Spot on, Ferris.
That was against our defense though!
Of course it was. Our run defense can make anyone look like a hall of famer.
Geezus…this guy is 30+ and oft injured. Let’s get a real DT and ILB
Weren’t the Packers interested in Revis?
I’m interested in Kate Upton and Natalie Gulbis.#together
Kate , Natalie and Elle can all try my helmet on.
“I’m interested in Elle Macpherson”.
Someone is stuck in the 80’s… :-)
Often injured? He has missed like 6 games in the last 7 years. Pretty damn good for a running back
Draft is pretty deep at DT. If you sign another position, it’s TE or a pass rusher. Although the Colts set a ridiculously stupid bar for tight ends with a 7 million annually deal for a guy that had like 150 yards last year. I mean, Richard Rodgers nearly equaled in production in one game last year. Forever hate the colts.
This is really surprising to me that the Packers would have interest in Forte.
Starks stats last year were similar to Forte’s. Both had 4.1 yards a carry, although Forte had more yards because he had more touches. Starks had 43 receptions for 392 yards, Forte had 44 receptions for 389 yards.
This would not be an upgrade from Starks.
Don’t get too excited about any free agent. In order for that to happen somebody would have wake Ted up and then try and pull his head out of his ass!
Why haven’t they signed him? WTF! Fire Thompson!
The odds are they are just making it look like they are active in free agency.
Well the Jets have him so there goes that opportunity
