Bears RB Matt Forte Doesn't Appreciate QB Jay Cutler Discussing Contract
Matt Forte is awaiting a long-term contract from the Bears and has hinted he'll hold out if he doesn't receive one. Teammate Jay Cutler recently touched on the running back's contract talks in an interview, something Forte didn't appreciate. Cutler said he "would be shocked if [Forte] doesn't sign his tender by July 15, or whenever it is, and show up." "I don't know, it depends on how we're doing in the negotiations," Forte said when asked if he would sign and be in camp on time. "But it kind of looks bad when other people speak for you. [Cutler] doesn't really know what's going to happen. He's not in the negotiations. He's just being optimistic. He wants me there, I want to be there. But it's just a matter of what happens in the next couple of weeks." Source: Chicago Sun-Times
