Matt Forte Contract Update: Chicago Bears, Running Back Stuck In Stalemate (SB Nation Chicago Podcast)

The Chicago Bears and running back Matt Forte are stuck at an impasse. Forte has wanted a new long term deal for over a year, but he doesn't find the one the Bears offered him to be satisfactory. On the SB Nation Chicago podcast, we discuss Forte's lack of leverage and get optimistic about the Bears' offense in 2012. Sounds of the pure euphoria following the jump.

Talking points:

  • What position should the Bears draft?
  • Will Forte's production take a dip now that the Bears have Brandon Marshall?
  • Should the Bears consider trading Forte?
  • How much longer can Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs be productive?
