Former Bears DT Tommie Harris to join Colts

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Former Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris isn't going to have to move very far.

Harris has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a league source.

Harris, the 14th overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, was a three-time Pro Bowl selection for the Bears.

One of the league's top defensive tackles, Harris was hampered with injuries and managed just four sacks in the last two seasons.

Harris visited the New England Patriots recently, but he's headed to the Colts, a club that runs a defense similar to the Bears.

I wouldn't be surprised if he made the Colts. He could maybe help a team who would be willing to rotate him in for about 10 or 12 reps a game on a consistent basis. The Bears gave him every opportunity to make it back as a starter and he just ain't got enough left to do that.

Pleasantly surprised, he still showed flashes late last year. I am starting to believe in Bears Bad Luck. Can you imagine having both T. Harris and D. Davorjchek (excuse the misspelling) both healthy.

Bears are having a high turnover on both sides of the ball this year. Would have made it a priority to re-sign this guy. Bears have always proven that their defense and special teams are their bread and butter. Not an elite QB and Wide receivers...
