  Bears | Matt Forte better out of the I-formation    Wed Jul 14, 05:58 PM

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte ran the ball 132 times out of the I-formation last year and averaged 4.5 yards per carry, reports the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. As the lone back, Forte averaged just 2.7 yards per carry on 85 carries.

Footballguys view: This is a problem for Forte as new offensive coordinator Mike Martz doesn't often use a fullback in his offense. Both fullbacks Will Ta'ufo'ou and Eddie Williams are not locks to make the roster. Chicago may end up using TE Brandon Manumaleuna out of the backfield at times, and as an H-back.

  Bears | Manumaleuna should be ready for camp    Thu Jun 24, 01:32 PM

CBSSports.com reports Bears TE Brandon Manumaleuna (knee) is the only player for Chicago to miss all the offseason workouts. "If there's a downer, it's that," coach Lovie Smith said Wednesday. "But next time we get together as a football team for training camp, we should have all of our players ready to go."

Footballguys view: Manumaleuna may not be much of a fantasy factor this year, but he knows the Mike Martz offense like the back of his hand and should be able to get up to speed quickly.

  Bears | Brandon Manumaleuna hopes to be ready for camp    Wed Jun 16, 04:43 PM

Chicago Bears TE Brandon Manumaleuna (knee) said he hopes to be able to return to practice by the time training camp starts, reports Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Tribune.

Footballguys view: The Bears considered the veteran tight end to be a key acquisition in free agency this offseason. He's very familiar with the Mike Martz system from his days in St. Louis, and should have no problem picking up the offense once training camp begins.

  Bears | No timetable for Brandon Manumaleuna, Earl Bennett    Fri May 21, 03:38 PM

Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith said there is no timetable for when TE Brandon Manumaleuna (knee) and WR Earl Bennett (knee) will be able to participate fully in practice, according to the Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure.

Footballguys view: You can rank Bennett fourth among the Bears WRs with confidence because of the time he'll miss getting acquainted with the Mike Martz offense while he recovers from this surgery. He's probably the least ideal fit in offense anyway, especially compared to the shorter, quicker Johnny Knox and Devin Hester.

  Bears | May have interest in Manumaleuna    Mon Mar 1, 03:15 PM

Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports the Chicago Bears may have interest in San Diego Chargers impending free-agent TE Brandon Manumaleuna.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick by the Rams in the 2001 NFL Draft, Manumaleuna knows Mike Martz offense and would bring a veteran understanding of the scheme for the rest of the tight ends. This talk has the future of former first-round pick Greg Olsen in doubt. Olsen doesn't really fit what Martz wants to do on offense, and the Bears may want to trade him while his value remains fairly high.
