He has already completed a DWI education course, gone through substance-abuse evaluation and completed 20 hours of community service.

Fantasy Tip: The addition of White gives Cutler plenty of weapons to throw to, but he has been largely inconsistent in the past despite plenty of firepower. Cutler will likely remain a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: White has plenty of talent and could factor in considerably into the Bears offense in his rookie season. Remember, Chicago traded away Brandon Marshall in the offseason, so they don't have much proven talent beyond Alshon Jeffery. White will surely be worth a late-round pick in fantasy leagues this fall as a WR5 or 6 with potential for more.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has been a disappointment for the most part with the Bears. Who knows how disappointing he'll be in a worse offense. If Cutler does get traded to the Titans, he should be considered a QB2.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte said he has talked with general manager Ryan Pace about a contract extension but will not be receiving a new deal at this point. Forte would prefer a new deal but is willing to play under his current contract and is not planning to hold out.
Fantasy Tip: Forte will still be the team's starting running back if he does not receive an extension and should be a big part of the offense in 2015. Forte likely will be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts next season and should be a starting option most weeks.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett is not expected to be traded during the 2015 NFL Draft, according to head coach John Fox. Fox said he has talked with Bennett and indicated that Bennett is part of the team.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett is reportedly looking for a contract extension, which is why his name may be coming up in trade talks. Bennett recorded career highs in receptions (90), receiving yards (916) and touchdowns (six) in 2014 and should be a start most weeks next season in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett could be on the move since the Bears are entertaining trade offers for him, according to sources. Bennett is looking for a new contract from the Bears or from any team that acquires him.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett is coming off a fantastic season with 90 receptions, 916 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 16 games. Bennett likely will be a starter wherever he plays next season and should be a starting Fantasy tight end most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears traded Brandon Marshall this offseason, so White could be added to fill the void. White could have a chance to start in 2015 if he joins the Bears and could be a late-round option in deeper league drafts next season.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte was not present for the team's commencement of their voluntary minicamp Tuesday, April 28. Forte was also absent for the beginning of the offseason program, and could be hinting at a holdout as he pursues an extension before the final year of his contract.
Fantasy Tip: We're still not in the critical stages of the offseason yet, so it's not time to start overreacting yet, especially taking into account that the minicamp is voluntary. Assuming Forte eventually shows up and stays healthy, he's a No. 1 RB candidate, especially in point-per-reception leagues.
