Bears RB Matt Forte Not Expected For Start Of Offseason Workouts
This year's offseason workouts begin next Monday, the starting date and the period in which teams can conduct such programs having been pushed back under the new collective bargaining agreement. The Bears will be without running back Matt Forte for the sessions if he does not sign the tender he received as the teamís franchise player or a long-term contract is not worked out. To this point, thereís been no sign of progress. Publicly, general manager Phil Emery says the team continues to work toward the goal of a multi-year deal. So, barring a breakthrough, Forte will be a high-profile absence as the Bears get going.
