The biggest question of the Chicago Bears' offseason was answered on Monday, when the team nailed down a four-year, $31.5 million deal for star running back Matt Forte (as reported by the Chicago Tribune). Forte's signing was a source of elation for most Bears fans, but there are plenty of players celebrating the deal as well...and not just in Chicago.
This quartet of players will see the biggest rewards from Forte's windfall:
1. Jay Cutler
The much-maligned Bears quarterback has made good progress, but losing Forte would've required rebuilding the entire offense from scratch. Now, Cutler has a dependable running game for the long haul (and a happy Forte for 2012).
