Matt Forte will become a free agent at the end of the season and was asked how playing in a contract year impacts his approach.
Forte has been one of the Chicago Bears' most productive offensive players throughout his career.
"Nobody wants to play on a one-year deal, especially the uncertainty of how football is with how it goes," said Forte. "You just figure like a guy who's been there since Day 1, continues to put in hard work and has produced, you figure that that guy should be rewarded. But in this business that doesn't always happen. All I can do is talk to them about it and they can say yes or no. They said we're not talking about that type of stuff right now, so all I can do is play football. I've come to the realization that every run or catch that I may have might be my last in a Bears uniform, so if they don't want to re-sign me, I'll have to play somewhere else.
