Biggs: Don’t Expect Forte To Report To Workouts Monday
" (WSCR) The Bears voluntary offseason workout program begins Monday, and unless there is a major shift between now and then, Pro Bowl running back Matt Forte will not participate.

Forte will not be allowed to participate if he does not sign the tender he received as the team’s franchise player or a long-term contract is not worked out.

“Forte won’t be there if he hasn’t signed a contract – that means a long-term extension, or it could mean him saying, ‘OK, I’ll play for the franchise tag. Maybe we can work something out in the coming months on a long-term deal, but I’ll sign this thing and see you Monday,’” Brad Biggs of the National Football Post and Chicago Tribune told The Mully and Hanley Show. “At this point, there has been no indication that he’s willing to sign the tender for a little more than $7.7 million. If he doesn’t have a deal in place of some type, he won’t be allowed to participate. At this point, yeah, I probably would not expect to see him.”
