Running back Matt Forte done in Chicago after 8 seasons

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) Matt Forte won't be returning to the Chicago Bears for a ninth season.

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 Bears confirmed it, with general manager Ryan Pace calling him one of the "all-time great Bears."

Forte will be an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team beginning March 9.
