David Montgomery Gives Bears Fans a Collective Heart Attack with Recent Tweets

A string of recent tweets from David Montgomery had Bears fans worried that he may have been on his way out of town via a trade.

On Wednesday afternoon, Bears’ running back David Montgomery took to Twitter to express his feelings about the city of Chicago. While we now know he was showing gratitude for the fans and the city who took a chance on him, the initial wording certainly raised some eyebrows.

Given the recent trade rumors surrounding the Bears and Eagles’ quarterback Carson Wentz, the Chicago faithful was alarmed — to say the least — that Montgomery might be on his way out of town after seeing these now-deleted tweets:

“Has been fun”? “Met some great people along the way”? Needless to say, that specific choice of wording could be interpreted to imply an impending departure.

Not long after, however, Montgomery went back on Twitter to retrace his steps with this message:

While that reassurance is greatly welcomed, Bears fans can’t help but feeling on edge as of late.

Just this past weekend, the rumor mill was churning with the potential news of the Bears sending Tarik Cohen to the Eagles as well as some draft picks. That rumor was shot down by Cohen himself:

Bears fans can rest assured that neither Montgomery nor Cohen are leaving town, at least for the time being.

While athletes stress that not every social media post is a cryptic message, a lack of faith in the decision-making process by the Bears front office brass combined with obscurely worded messages from star players rightfully riles up the Chicago faithful.
