The Bears have added a running back after losing a running back in free agency.

Free agent running back D'Onta Foreman has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Bears’ No. 1 running back from last year, David Montgomery, departed in free agency to sign with the Lions.

The 26-year-old Foreman was a 2017 third-round pick of the Texans and has also spent time with the Colts, Titans and Falcons. Last year he played for the Panthers and had career-highs in carries (203), yards (914) and rushing touchdowns (five).

Foreman is the third key member of the 2022 Panthers’ offense to join the 2023 Bears. They’ve also added former Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore and former Panthers quarterback P.J. Walker.

  1. I think the gig is up. Poles is still patiently playing money ball and looking at 2024. Keeping cash available and build through the draft. I like it.

    Bears best hope around .500 in 2023. No issues here.

  2. Ryan Poles literally filling every hole on the roster this week except OL, DL and edge rusher (and maybe CB) gives a clear indication where they’ll be focusing their draft.

  3. Almost 1000 yds last year, pretty cheap replacement for Montgomery. This is getting interesting.

  4. Foreman was pretty good as a Panther. No, he’s not elite, but Montgomery wasn’t last year either. A good replacement.

  5. No issues with anything Poles has done to this point. He’s not afraid to pull the trigger and that’s refreshing.

  6. I don’t know the Bears were so bad last year but this current crop of players and draft picks ain’t bad.

  7. This guy in FA has yet to sign one difference makers on offense he signed a bunch of 2nd and 3rd string talent and get’s praised for it by clueless media and fans …lol…I see another lousy year for the Bears the offense still stinks .

  8. A whole bunch of JAG ( just a guy ) offense players were signed by this clueless GM so far the offense went from worst in the NFL to 2nd worst . Fields will be running for his life before he finishes his drop back just like last year he still has an expansion team talent on offense.
