Bears fans might be riding the rollercoaster of quarterback trade rumors on Twitter, but running back Tarik Cohen isn’t.

On Saturday night, after a Philadelphia television/radio reporter speculated the Bears could give up a first-round pick, quarterback Nick Foles and Cohen for quarterback Carson Wentz, the running back responded.

“Let me clear this up real quick,” he wrote. “Just got off the phone [with] my [head coach] and GM, Bears fans, we locked in. ... Don’t worry ... ”

Presumably, general manager Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy told him he needn’t worry about being traded.

“People say anything nowadays man,” he wrote.

Cohen is recovering from a torn ACL suffered on a punt return against the Falcons.

ESPN reported Saturday that the Eagles figure to trade Wentz soon, but it’s unclear if such rumblings coincide with general manager Howie Roseman trying to churn up interest for his passer after he posted the worst season of any starting quarterback last year.

The Bears have said they’ll be aggressive on the quarterback market, which is mostly limited to trades and the draft. The free-agent class is weak.
