The Chicago Bears cut safety Chris Harris Thursday, but it doesnt look like Harris will be without a team for long. According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune the Chargers could be interested in signing Harris. Right now the Chargers are currently ranked 4th in the NFL in pass defense, but could use a safety like Harris to fill a void left by Bob Sanders who is out for the year with an injury. The only way the Chargers can sign Harris is if 23 teams don’t claim him through waivers or if Harris clears waivers he is open game and any team can sign him.
Harris was not happy with the contract he had with the Bears and had asked for a trade early this season. The Bears couldn’t find a team that would trade for Harris so the Bears just released the 7 year vet.
