The Chicago Bears have signed Pro Bowl running back Matt Forte to a new four-year contract.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed by the Bears but the contract is reportedly worth about $32m.

Forte, who missed the final month of last season with a sprained
right knee, rushed for three touchdowns and a team-leading 997 yards
during the 2011 NFL campaign.

His injury, which came two weeks after starting quarterback Jay
Cutler suffered a season-ending injury, was a major blow for a Bears
team that failed to make the play-offs.

Forte, selected in the second round by Chicago in the 2008 NFL Draft,
is the only player in league history with 900 rushing yards and 400
receiving yards in each of his first four seasons.

"I've been working hard this off-season and am looking forward to joining my team mates at training camp next week," he said.

"I'm glad the business part is done and we can all turn our attention to football and our goal of winning a championship."
