Matt Forte had some very candid comments about the Bears and his contract situation during an appearance on Pro Football Talk Live with Mike Florio on Thursday morning.
Forte said rehab for his injured knee is going well and he hopes to be able to play in the upcoming Pro Bowl.
"I have to take a physical before the Pro Bowl and let the doctors test me," Forte said. "I think I'm 100 percent, so we will see what the doctors say. I should be good to go."
The running back went on to discuss his ongoing contract situation with the Bears.
"There's been no talks. I guess the deal is now that they need to get a new GM and talks will start," said Forte. "Hopefully with the Senior Bowl and draft coming up, that they get a new GM in pretty fast and then we will start talks again."
Does Forte have concerns about his role in the organization now that Mike Martz is no longer offensive coordinator?
"I think since I came into the league that I've played well in both offenses that we had. I'm not really too concerned about it. I'm pretty sure that the offense will be designed around the guys that make the plays. I'm not too concerned about what kind of offense it will be or if the numbers will go down."
