Love this pickup...I didn't think we were going to be able to get him so I'm very excited! Yes he is a year older but he doesn't need to carry this team, just be a solid contributor and catch the rock. Should be a great fit for Gailey's system and will likely have less injuries/not fade out like Ivory did.

Could've also been Forte's agent leaking the news to try and drive up his price especially since the Dolphins were rumored to be the other team interested so if you have two division rivals bidding for him why not try and drive up the price.

Agree. Forte makes people miss.... Ivory runs over people for 12 games/yr

because they're two completely different kind of players? because Forte fits a Gailey offense much, much better?

They aren't the same player by a longshot.  Ivory will give you the "sexy" run where he tramples over 5-6

guys BUT for the rest of the game he's on the bike.  Forte is durable, never leaves the field and catches the

ball like a WR.  Two years ago he caught over 100 balls out of the backfield

I understand this.  Look, if this was Forte three years ago? I'd be doing cartwheels.  Frankly, I don't think he's the explosive, make you miss, back any more.  Hope I'm wrong.

Was just telling a friend what an absolute PPR stud this guy is.

Love this signing. Great at picking up the blitz as well

If Mcc coveted Forte, why not just have signed Ivory?  Not a disaster, but for me a "meh" signing.

huh? Forte caught over 100 passes in 2014. Ivory could play 10 years and not catch 100 balls.

Forte when he was healthy was the main cog in the Bears offense. And it shows that Forte wants to play with Marshall. A lot of people thought that Bears teammates couldn't stand him. And there were tapes of Marshall yelling and screaming at people after a loss in the Bears locker room. So this just backs up the fact that the Jets best player in 2015 is not a terrible teammate. If he was so bad Forte would never have signed with us.

So you would only want Forte from 3 years ago but NOT the guy that caught 100 balls in 2014? okidokie. Keep trying.

We're going into the 2016 season.  He's coming off a knee injury.  You all can debate the signing.  I don't like it.

How is Forte 6'-2" if Marshall is 6'-4" ?

Dude.  Stop twisting my words.  You know what I meant. I have no interest in arguing the signing.  I hope Forte lights it up.  Again, I don't like the signing.  I'm done.

He had an injury and returned to split time and averaged about 4.5 yards a carry. I don't mind you being against the signing but please provide valid arguments and not say he hasn't been good in 3 years when he was a superstar just 2 years ago with 100 catches.

I will judge this based on the contract without knowing what fortes other offers were or the teams plans and ignoring the current market and cap

I think Mac knew he couldn't sit on this one. To me a big surprise because of our cap situation and to get a running back. Now it seems like we won't have to draft one early. And can fill other needs. Like for example, NT!

A combination of Marshall, Decker & Forte on the field at the same time puts incredible pressure

on a defense.  You're basically trying to cover 3 WR's

Add in Devin Smith/Enunwa/Amaro  and the offense has elite talent.....if only we had a QB

This will end up being a good move for us but we still need to draft a young kid. Im assuming the Jets were eying Doug Martin because we signed him shortly after Martin resigned with the Bucs.

Kinda indifferent to this signing,  but obviously I hope it works out, and he stays healthy.

Well, you could re sign Powell, or let Powell go, get another comp pic, and draft a RB.

Forte was cut, so he shouldn't count against future picks.  Hoping for another LT situation.  Great locker room guy, over 1000 combined yards.
