Analysis: Forte signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the Jets last week after spending his first eight NFL seasons with Chicago. He says he was "surprised" the Bears declined to offer him even a "mid- to low-range" deal in free agency. Forte is 30, an age at which NFL running backs typically begin to decline, but he says the Jets talked to him about being "an every-down back."

A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that the Jets also agreed in principle to re-sign running back Bilal Powell.
Analysis: After spending his first eight NFL seasons in Chicago, Forte will likely replace the departed Chris Ivory as the starter in the Jets' backfield. Forte, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, ranks second in Bears history to Hall of Famer Walter Payton in several categories, including yards rushing.

The two-time Pro Bowl running back announced on Instagram Friday morning that the team informed him this week it will not offer him a contract for next season. The team confirmed it, calling him one of the "all-time great Bears."
Analysis: Forte will be an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team beginning March 9. Forte, whose 12,178 rushing yards and 487 receptions with the Bears ranks only behind Walter Payton on the club's all-time list, hits the open market at age 30 and off a career-low 898 rushing yards in 13 games last season. The two-time Pro Bowler has spent his entire eight-year career with Chicago, having been taken by the Bears in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
