Jun 30, 2012 11:50 AM EST

Asked about his contract situation with the Bears on Friday, Matt Forte admitted that he'll likely be playing for the team in 2012.

"I don't think I really have a choice, do I?" he said. "Yeah, I'll be here."

Most believe he'll be in training camp, but the exact date he'll report remains to be seen.

It's going to be a fun season," he said.

If the running back signs the franchise tender, Forte will make $7.749 million this season. Forte and the Bears have until July 16 to agree on a multiyear deal.
