2012 Chicago Bears Offseason: Matt Forte 'Disrespected,' Spouts Off On Twitter

Chicago Bears star running back Matt Forte is apparently displeased with his continually stalled extension talks and the recent signing of RB Michael Bush -- widely considered a backup plan for the Bears in case no Forte extension materializes. Never a stranger to voicing his opinions, Matt Forte made his emotions know on Thursday morning vis his Twitter account:

The Bears have reportedly offered Forte an extension worth $13 to $15 million, but Forte elected to play the 2011 season without a new contract in place. Forte finished the season on the injury list, but then-GM Jerry Angelo said the injury would not affect the team's negotiations.
