Matt Forte Update: Running Back Responds To Bears' Reported Durability Concerns On Twitter

This isn't the first time Matt Forte has taken to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the Chicago Bears. Earlier in the offseason, Forte tweeted to show his disappointment when the Bears signed another running back in free agency, Michael Bush, before restructuring his contract. After the Chicago Tribune suggested on Saturday that the Bears had long-term concerns over the health of Forte's knees, the Pro Bowl runner posted this tweet and an accompanying video.

Forte has yet to sign the franchise tag the team has placed on him and is not participating in OTA workouts. Still, as we've been over many times, the running back doesn't have much of a choice. The Bears hold all the leverage, and the $7 million-plus Forte is promised this season by signing the tender is simply too much money to pass up.
