New contract talks between the Chicago Bears and running back Matt Forte [[ FOR-tay ]] have been put on hold for the moment. The Bears had reportedly offered Forte a deal worth $13-to-14-million guaranteed, but it apparently wasn't accepted. The two sides had hoped to wrap up a deal before the teams' season opener against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at Soldier Field. Forte, a 2008 second-rounder out of Tulane, rushed for 1,069 yards and six touchdowns last season.
