Forte Coy On Reporting To Bears
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.
