Forte Unsure of When He'll Join Team, But Excited About Offense

Matt Forte still hasn't reached a long-term deal with the Bears, but during a charity event at Marist High School, he said that he would play for the Bears this season.

"I don't think I really have a choice, do I?" he said. "Yeah, I'll be here."

According to ESPNChicago, most believe that he'll be at training camp, but it's still somewhat up in the air when he'll show up.

That hasn't managed to put a damper on his outlook for the season though.

"It's going to be a fun season," he said.

...

"I'm excited to get in there and talk to Mr. (Jeremy) Bates and get in there with Jay (Cutler) and see what he thinks about the passing game, and see how I can get involved in that, too," he said.

...

"Coach Tice is a great coach and I've known that since he coached Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor down in Jacksonville with their running games," Forte said. "When he got here, I knew it would be the same thing. To have him as coordinator now, it's going to be something to watch. I'm excited about it."

What do you think Forte's role in the Tice offense will be? Could Tice's offense enhance Forte's value in 2013?
