Matt Forte regularly gets mentioned among the league’s elite running backs. He is one of the most versatile backs in the NFL, does most of his talking on the field and regularly churns out eye-popping stats. Forte has amassed over 1,000 yards in his last three seasons and also added over 200 catches, over 1,000 yards receiving and eight catching touchdowns over that period.
There are many directions a players career can go when the winds of change blow. On one side of the coin, you have the likes of Randy Moss moving to the Patriots from Oakland following the 2007 season and amassing 1,493 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns. The following season and on the other side of the coin you have Roy Williams who was traded in the chilly Detroit winters for the Texas sun and caught 111 passes in four years in what was considered one of the worst trades in NFL history.
