Chicago, Ill. - Former Tulane football player Matt Forte avoided playing the 2012-13 season under a franchise tag on Monday by agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Chicago Bears.

Entering his fifth season in the league, the running back will be under contract for four years and a total of $32 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

In his four years in the NFL, Forte has accumulated over 6,000 yards from scrimmage and only missed four games during his rookie season.

LSU's Dwayne Bowe has yet to sign his franchise tender with the Kansas City Chiefs.  The deadline for teams to agree to long term deals with their franchised players is 3 p.m., central time.
