CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte received quite the honor Tuesday when he made the regional cover for Sports Illustrated 2015 NFL Preview.

The caption for Forte’s edition is “versatile RBs are the cutting edge of offense.”

Forte has racked up a total of 7,704 rushing yards and 3,727 receiving yards in his seven seasons with the Bears. The team selected him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Forte is in his final year of his contract with the Bears. So the question is: What happens to Forte after this year?

Sports Illustrated had the following to say about Forte:

“Forte, a two-time Pro Bowler, headlines a story on the status of running backs in the NFL. Although many teams are finding runners interchangeable, Forte has been a constant in the Bears’ offense since 2008.”
