Don’t Expect The Bears To Trade Matt Forte Anytime Soon

The Chicago Tribune reported earlier today that at least two teams are interested in trading for Bears running back Matt Forte.
“I’m glad teams are interested,” Forte told the Tribune after Chicago’s win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. “For me to be out here working as hard as I do and not have a contract extension, you kind of get that feeling of being unappreciated. I just hope that when this year is over and I play as well as I’ve been playing, that if the Bears don’t reward me with a contract, another team will.”
Forte leads the entire NFL in yards from scrimmage with 908. He leads the Bears in both rushing (527) and receiving yards (381). He also accounts for roughly 46 percent of the team’s total offense.
Forte is in the final year of his rookie contract and is currently making $600,000 this season.
