The Chicago Bears have signed running back Michael Bush. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal is for 4 yrs, $14m, $7 guaranteed.

Last season Bush racked up 977 rushing yards and scored eight touchdowns for the Oakland Raiders, stepping up with grace when starter Darren McFadden was sidelined with a foot injury. This could be a great move for Chicago in terms of making their next season a big one.

Matt Forte, the Bears’ current starting running back, doesn’t seem to be too pleased with the deal however, and has expressed as much on Twitter. It started when he retweeted a couple tweets from former Bears tight end Greg Olsen:

Then, Forte added:

Then, he retweeted (note the hashtag):

When everyone says RB is a replaceable position… when is the last time a RB from the Bears went to a pro bowl? #PayForte???(image) 4 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Then, it was:

for the record I’m not mad at the signing of another running back. This is 4th time that’s happened. I embrace competition as well as help(image) 2 hours ago via Echofon ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

But as for not taking care of ur own and undervaluing a player under his market value is another story! #twitterrant(image) 2 hours ago via Echofon ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

It would appear that Forte is less than thrilled with his team. Meanwhile, Bush has been out enjoying some movies and basketball:
