As reported by Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with running back Matt Forte on a four-year deal in the hours before today's deadline for multi-year deals for franchise players. No details yet, but Adam Schefter indicated the deal is for about $8 million a year.
UPDATE 4pm EDT: And... Ray Rice has now agreed to a new contact as well, five years at $40 million, so essentially the same as Forte but with one additional season. Of course, once we know the details, the bonuses, the structure, etc. there will be other differences between the two deals.
