Jared Allen's sudden departure to Carolina is a sign the Chicago Bears are open for business.
With almost zero shot of making the playoffs, the Bears (0-3) need to be active in advance of the NFL's Nov. 3 trade deadline.
Don't expect a fire sale. That's not how it usually works in professional football. But the Bears have a pair of high-profile offensive players to shop: Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery.
Both are scheduled to be free agents after this season, but Jeffery may be a guy the team can build around. The story said Forte could help a team now that's potentially heading to the playoffs.

Week 4 vs. Oakland
Matt Forte is the Bears only prayer for offense at this point. With quarterback Jay Cutler and top receiver Alshon Jeffery both likely to sit out again, the offense will rely on Forte for playmaking.
He did the best he could last week, rushing 20 times for 74 yards against a tough Seahawks defense. He didn't record any catches, however, because Jimmy Clausen is terrible. Still, Forte is an elite back and has a great matchup against Oakland. His value takes a bit of a hit because of the Bears offense, but he should get 20-plus touches, which gives him plenty of opportunities to make a big play.
