Longtime Bears running back Matt Forte announced Friday that he won’t be returning to Chicago in 2016.
Last year, ESPN’s E60 profiled the eight-year NFL veteran, detailing his connection to Bears great Walter Payton.
Forte leaves the Bears ranked second all time in franchise rushing yards, behind only Payton. His 64 total touchdowns rank third after Payton and Neal Anderson.
In his first game in the NFL, Forte rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown and went on to rank fourth among all running backs with 1,238 rushing yards that season.
