Bears’ Matt Nagy Says Contract Talks with Roquan Smith at ‘Stalemate’

Published

on

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy classified negotiations with Bears’ rookie linebacker Roquan Smith as being at a “stalemate”, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

“It is at a stalemate, but at the same time I’m not going to get into any more of where it’s at publicly. I don’t think it’s fair to him, I don’t think it’s fair to his agent, I don’t think it’s fair to our organization. We’re going to keep it between us and I think that’s the best thing to do right now,” Nagy said.

The major point of contentions seems to be that team wants language in his contract that would void his guaranteed money if Smith gets suspended, which has caused some pushback from Smith’s reps.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is excited about the revamped backfield on the team as they approach the 2019 season.

Tarik Cohen, David Montgomery and Mike Davis currently comprise the Bears three-headed monster running back rotation.

“We’ve got a three-headed monster that’s going to be able to make huge plays for this offense,” Trubisky said, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune . “Very talented guys and pretty much handpicked by (general manager) Ryan Pace and Coach Nagy. I 100 percent believe in those guys.

“Just being around Mike and being back with Tarik, you just feel like these guys really fit this offense and are able to do the things we want them to do — running the zone scheme, making guys miss, extending plays, running guys over and catching the ball out of the backfield. That’s what we expect from David and Mike.”
