Summary

Forte put up some ridiculous numbers in 2014, playing 92 percent of the offensive snaps while breaking records. He caught a personal best 102 passes last season for an offense that played close to the line of scrimmage. When the quarterback feels pressure, Forte is the go-to. At a time when a pass-friendly offense is all the rage, the Bears are one team that will be scaling back on throwing the football. New head coach John Fox wants to run the ball, and that's what Forte is paid to do. Jay Cutler is going to be asked to do less. Gone are the games when Forte runs the ball only eight times. His rushing attempt totals will be closer to 28 than eight. And he'll be running behind an improved offensive line. Free-agent signing Will Montgomery is now at center and left guard Matt Slauson is back healthy after missing the majority of the 2014 season due to injury. There is going to be plenty of opportunity for Forte. It's a safe bet to think he will continue to be one of the most productive dual-threat backs in the league (May 22)
