New York Jets running back Matt Forte doesn’t care what Brandon Marshall thinks about the Jets.

One of New York Giants’ receivers Brandon Marshall’s former teammates doesn’t care about what he thinks about the New York Jets.

Jets running back Matt Forte was asked about comments that Marshall had made earlier this month and he fired back. In an interview with WFAN, Marshall said that the Jets have no chance in 2017.

“I just knew I couldn’t be in that environment,” Marshall said about the Jets. “I think everyone knows the type of personality I am at this point in my career. I wouldn’t have made it through an entire season knowing that we didn’t have a chance. That’s all you want as a player. You just want a chance.”

Forte responded by saying, “It doesn’t matter, he’s not here. He hasn’t been here the entire offseason, so he doesn’t know what chance we have or anyone has. That’s Brandon speaking on Brandon, that’s all. That’s all I have to say about that.”


Marshall and Forte were teammates for four seasons, three with the Chicago Bears and last year with the Jets. Gang Green cut Marshall in the offseason and he signed with the Giants. Forte, unlike Marshall, does believe that the Jets have a chance this year.

“We have the belief that we can go out here and win games,” he said. “And that’s what we’re going to do.”

Looks like we’ll have to wait and see who’s right.
