Bears RB Matt Forte‘s contract talks are not the only ones that have been put on hold, according to league sources.
The Bears have broken off talks with Forte, with the sides unable to come to a deal. Forte is in the last year of his four-year rookie contract. Chicago was also unable to make real progress in talks with SS Chris Harris, and no deal is likely to be struck anytime soon.
The Browns had been talking to RB Peyton Hillis, but those sides remain far apart with no quick solution in sight. The Dolphins have been talking to DT Paul Soliai, a franchise player, and Buffalo traded proposals with WR Steve Johnson, but those sides are nowhere near a deal at this point, sources said.
The Steelers continue talks to lock up FS Troy Polamalu, while the Ravens have been unable to work out an agreement to get Haloti Ngata off the franchise tag and secure the dominant defensive lineman to a long-term deal.
