On Friday, the Chicago Bears announced that they would not be bringing back running back Matt Forte next season. Forte, who spent the first eight years of his career in Chicago, will undoubtedly sign with another team, but which club would he fit best with? (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)

The Cowboys went into 2015 hoping that Joseph Randle could replace DeMarco Murray, but that certainly didn’t work out. Darren McFadden looked solid, but Forte would definitely be a great dual-threat upgrade in a Dallas backfield that badly needs a weapon. (Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images)

The Lions drafted Ameer Abdullah, and they also have made due with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick in their backfield. Forte would give them an upgrade at the position, and he could help their offense transition as they deal with losing Calvin Johnson after his retirement.

Julius Peppers found new life for his career after he headed to Wisconsin following a stint with the Bears, and Forte could be a great weapon for Aaron Rodgers to utilize. Questions about Eddie Lacy always seem to pop up, and Forte could give the team consistent production.

Oft-injured Arian Foster has become an increasing point of concern for Houston’s offense, so adding Forte to the mix would be smart. Houston still needs a quarterback badly, but adding Forte could allow them to focus on using the draft to acquire a signal caller. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

The Patriots have become legendary for their constant rotation of running backs, but Forte could give them consistent production and could give Tom Brady yet another weapon to throw to as the team looks to remain one of the top dogs in the AFC.

The Seahawks do have a tremendous weapon in Thomas Rawls, but he’s not much of a pass catcher out of the backfield. Adding Forte into the equation would add even more versatility to Seattle’s offense, and Russell Wilson would surely be in favor of having another experienced veteran to replace Marshawn Lynch.
