Report: Bears RB Matt Forte skips voluntary workout, wants new deal
by Jason Butt |

Though the Bears' have started voluntary workouts, one notable offensive star decided not to show.

Bears running back Matt Forte did not participate in the team's first workout on Monday, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune. The Bears met Monday for a team meeting and a strength and conditioning session. Forte has reportedly told the Bears he would like a new deal. 

$100,000 of Forte's $8.2 million owed in 2014 is part of a workout bonus. Forte could lose that $100,000 if he doesn't attend 85 percent of the voluntary workouts, according to the Tribune story. Forte is entering the final year of his contract. 

Forte confirmed he missed Monday's workout on his personal Twitter account.

"Relax everybody... It's called voluntary W/O for a reason," Forte wrote. "I've always been there especially when it counts!"

Forte has been with the Bears his entire seven-year career. In 2014, he ran for 1,038 yards and six touchdowns and accounted for 808 receiving yards and four additional touchdowns.
