(670 The Score) The Bears are adding to their running back committee.
Veteran running back D'Onta Foreman has agreed to a one-year, $3-million deal with the Bears, ESPN reported Thursday evening. The team hasn't yet made the agreement official.
Foreman, 26, rushed 203 times for 914 yards and five touchdowns with the Panthers in 2022. He has been in the NFL since 2017, spending two years with the Texans, two with the Titans and one with the Panthers.
Foreman emerged as the starting running back in Carolina last season after the Panthers traded star Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers in late October.
The Bears allowed starting running back David Montgomery to depart in free agency, where he signed a three-year contract with the division rival Lions. Chicago then signed running back Travis Homer on a one-year deal.
Foreman, Homer and Khalil Herbert are expected to share the workload in the Bears' backfield in 2023.
