Forte’s storied past not relevant to his new team

Reggie Bush said on the NFL Network that Matt Forte’s had a Hall-of-Fame career.

This created some buzz in the Jets’ Nation.

Honestly, this is irrelevant to the Jets.

When it comes to the Jets, it doesn’t matter what Forte has done in the past.

All that matters is what he does in 2016 and beyond.

His accomplishments in Chicago are a moot point in Florham Park. For instance, Forte was ranked 90th on the NFL Network’s Top 100 players, and I read somewhere he was highest rated Jet so far; the list is released incrementally.

Once again, this is meaningless to the Jets. The work that landed him in that spot is in the past. Obviously, none of it was done for the Jets.

Forte is 30. We will see if he can stave off Father Time and continue to play on a high level.

There is no question he’s had an outstanding career.

But his past accomplishments are irrelevant to the Jets in terms of fans or the organization taking pride in them.
