I guess Cedric took the whole "Forte" thing to hard and decided to drink himself into jail.

I'm pretty sure he'll be a "running back" in jail too.

Man, that is COLD! Funny as hell though!

Ced won't spend a day in with his luck...So, how can the Bears shed this loser? I wonder what their waiver options are?

People Puhleeeeeze! We all know Lovie and JA's track record of standing behind the misfits! If anything he can be reunited with the Tankster or maybe head over with Pacman Jones! I highly doubt he is going anywhere though, we can get another season of the infamous 2 yard rush.

Pray to God that Forte makes a good transition from college ball to the NFL.

Maybe an ex-con team? No holds barred football? I heard the Cowboys got first dibs on Vick too. Not too much longer...

I love the cops statment that was reported on ESPN. It was basically that I pepper sprayed him because Benson was big and black.

"Benson...refused to put on a life jacket,"

Of course he did. He knows how to float. He's been floating in Chicago for 3 years.
