In each of Matt Forte’s first four seasons in the league, he caught more than 50 passes for at least 470 yards while serving as a checkdown option in an offense bereft of playmakers at wide receiver.
Last season with Jay Cutler’s favorite target, Brandon Marshall, on board, Forte caught just 44 passes for only 340 yards in a reduced role. But from all indications, new head coach Marc Trestman’s offense will allow Forte to have a more prominent role in the passing game.
