With a report suggesting that teams may be interested in his client, agent Adisa Bakari insisted Matt Forte is focused on the current season.
The Chicago Tribune reported that teams have expressed an interest in Forte but ESPN Chicago quoted Bears general manager Jerry Angelo as saying no teams had contacted him about his star running back.
"Matt's a Bear and wants to remain a Bear," Bakari said. "We're unaware of any teams expressing an interest to trade for him by today's deadline. Matt's focused on continuing to help the Bears win in 2011."
