Matt Forte had a lot to talk about yesterday on the Carmen, Jurko & Harry radio show on ESPN 1000.
He touched on everything this off-season from workouts, contract issues and his advice for QB Jay Cutler.
Here’s what he had to say.
On what he thinks Jay Cutler must do to forget the NFC Championship game:
“What he has to do is forget what happened, and I think he already has,” Forte said Thursday on the “Carmen, Jurko & Harry” radio show on ESPN 1000. “Just seeing him out when we were running routes, he’s 100 percent throwing the ball just like he’s always done, taking drops and looks very good. So he has to forget about what happened, and continue to play at that high level he was at winning all those games last year. I think he’s going to come out and do that.”
On keeping contact with the team:
“We had a lot of contact,” Forte said. “The weather is crazy up here, but once it finally got good enough to where we can go and safely run routes and catch the ball, we got together multiple times every week. Everybody from the skill positions was there catching balls and running routes. So I think it was a really good thing that he got everyone together.”
On a possible contract extension:
“My agent is handling that, and he’s in talks with the Bears people,” Forte said. “Look at the stats over the last three years, and I’m among the top five running backs in all-purpose yards and touchdowns and all that stuff. So hopefully we can do something.”
