The Chicago Bears have not had a great start to the 2015 NFL season.

From losing 1st round draft pick Kevin White for the majority of the 2015 campaign during the preseason, to not winning any of their first three games of the season, culminating in a seeming fire sale of players.  

There is one player that Bears fans would have hated to leave, running back Matt Forte. And fortunately for them, Forte thinks he is staying.

Forte Staying?

During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, Forte said he doesn’t think that he will be leaving Soldier Field.

“I don’t worry about those things,” Forte started off as saying. “A lot of it is media speculation, just like in the offseason they were like ‘the Bears could trade Matt.’ Everybody was talking about me getting traded then and it didn’t happen. Now after one guy gets traded, it all comes back again. I can’t control that either."

"They can trade me if they want to. I don’t think I’m going anywhere, but I can only control how I play on the football field and that’s what I do.”

Contract Up

Forte’s contract is up after this season and there hasn’t been much sign in recent times that the Bears are exactly fighting tooth and nail to bring him back in 2016. That's why the trade rumors started up.

Later in the interview, Forte let it be known that he wants to play on a winning team, and he wants that winning team to be in Chicago. But the Bears don't look like making the playoffs any time soon and Forte could find himself gone in free agency.
