Jamar Williams heads to Carolina in deal for Harris

So the unofficial Chris Harris trade is now official, according to the Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Tribune.

Harris will re-join the Bears, almost certainly as a starter. Linebacker Jamar Williams heads to Carolina.  Williams will add depth on the weak side for the Panthers with Thomas Davis recovering from a torn ACL.  He could potentially compete to start on the strong side with James Anderson and Dan Connor.

Williams had some decent moments last year, recording 20 sacks tackles (long week) in a game he started for Lance Briggs.  He was a restricted free agent, which is one reason the Bears were willing to move him.

    “Williams had some decent moments last year, recording 20 sacks in a game he started for Lance Briggs”
    that HAS to be a record..because I think 22 sacks for a season is the record. So 20 in one game must be a record. Wow…I hope he got player of the game that day.

    Jamar Williams recorded 20 SACKS in a game? Do you guys read through these stories before you post them?

    “Williams had some decent moments last year, recording 20 sacks in a game”
    Wow, 20 sacks would be a career year for most people Greg. Maybe you meant tackles.
    Looks like a good move for the Bears: trade from depth and get starting help.

    HAHA Greg is retarded. 20 sacks?

  14. 12thman says: Apr 27, 2010 4:11 PM

    No, he did not have 20 sacks in a game. Thats over the top for even you knuckleheads.

  15. bsupunter35 says: Apr 27, 2010 4:11 PM

    “2o sacks in a game” ???

    Seeing how I have never heard of this guy i find it hard to believe he recorded 20 sacks in ONE game

  26. dontgiveaphuck says: Apr 27, 2010 4:16 PM

    Eventhough I know you mean 20 tackles, how would they trade a guy who had 20 sacks in 1 game. Thats beyond a proofreading error, man you SUCK!!!

  27. nfcbeast says: Apr 27, 2010 4:19 PM

    Yu needs 2 right an apologeee fur yer baad jurnalizm!!!

  28. Midway Monster says: Apr 27, 2010 4:19 PM

    Excellent. We were going to lose Williams as a free agent anyways so might as well get a starting safety in exchange.
    Now just trade for an O line while also signing Atogwe and we are set…

  29. jimicos says: Apr 27, 2010 4:19 PM

    Jenna Jameson once had 20 sacks in a day.

  30. Steeleheader says: Apr 27, 2010 4:22 PM

    That’s what they told Carolina and they bought it.

  31. Guy Incognito says: Apr 27, 2010 4:22 PM

    You’re a good sport Rosenthal : )

  32. recent says: Apr 27, 2010 4:25 PM

    if it gets up to 100 consecutive posts saying ‘wow, 20 sacks in a game’, does that mean next article gets proofread? I do more proofreading in day to day emails than some of these posts, and thats kind of sad.

  33. mzezulak says: Apr 27, 2010 4:26 PM

    Guess that closes the door on Sharper

  34. pilot08 says: Apr 27, 2010 4:27 PM

    hahaa, thats great.

  35. Bears_Beets_Battlestar says: Apr 27, 2010 4:27 PM

    Derrrrr, 20 sacks! derrrrrr!!!!
    Everyone above that commented about there being 20 sacks in a game is a total idiot.
    Obviously a typo…the best part was that every response was dumber and dumber, just like anyone living in the south.

  36. Dewey Axewoond says: Apr 27, 2010 4:27 PM

    Hell, 20 sacks is nothing for a lot of the Vikings players.
    During the game, before the game, after the game–it doesn’t matter.
    And by “sacks” I mean the NUT variety.
    In their mouths.

  37. troke says: Apr 27, 2010 4:29 PM

    Why would they trade some guy who had 20 sacks in a game? He is a one man defense. 2 more sacks and he’d have the record for the season. If he has that kind of talent why was he riding the bench? With skills like that they should have traded Urlacher.
    Worst trade ever!

  38. blmfordj88 says: Apr 27, 2010 4:32 PM

    So we trade a STARTING safety for a BACK-UP linebacker?!?!

  39. Howie Handles says: Apr 27, 2010 4:37 PM

    LOL Love it. 67 posts ALREADY because of sacks vs tackles.
    20 sacks? Is he the Waterboy?

  40. Howie Handles says: Apr 27, 2010 4:37 PM

    Water sucks, it really really sucks. GGGGGAAAAATORADE, GGGGGGGGGAAAATORADE

  41. Howie Handles says: Apr 27, 2010 4:38 PM

    Jamal “The Waterboy” Williams

  42. MakingitRain says: Apr 27, 2010 4:42 PM

    Not one damn intelligent comment in the whole section, You a** clowns can’t figure out what he meant. I was hoping to read some real feed back the subject. Like why trade a top SS for a backup LB

  43. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Apr 27, 2010 4:45 PM

    gregg is an idiot, this type of failure is expected

  44. Martin Keamy says: Apr 27, 2010 4:50 PM

    Why yes!!!! Here is Peyton Manning for Brady Quinn!!!!!! WHOOOOOO!!!!
    Is being a Panthers fan now what it was like to be a Cardinals fan for their first 80 years of existence?

  46. majorlots says: Apr 27, 2010 5:25 PM

    a no name and no draft picks for chris harris?!? ridiculously bad trade for carolina. can’t believe they’re trading the hitman for a guy i’ve never heard of. by far the worst off-season move carolina has made this year….why in the freakin world would they send him back to chicago!!??

  47. Jagmankane says: Apr 27, 2010 5:33 PM

    I thought I’d add just one more WOW 20 sacks in a game?

  48. screaming sheep says: Apr 27, 2010 6:00 PM

    If there are any Panther fans out there with the last name of Harris that want to buy a nice authentic black jersey number , I can sell you one cheap.
    Purchased last year, only worn a few times.

  49. bigsheev says: Apr 27, 2010 6:03 PM

    WOW (insert lame attempt at humor on the 20 sack game mistake) Yall are great!

  50. NFC North Resident says: Apr 27, 2010 9:32 PM

    this is a steal for the Bears. That “20 tackle” game was actually 18, and it was against the Rams.
    Fact is, the Bears lost 2 of their 3 starting LB’s for the season before halftime of Week 1, and Williams only started 3 games. He had an opportunity to step in and take a spot from Hunter Hillenmeyer and Nick Roach. Those guys aren’t exactly Butkus and Singletary.
    I’ve been bitching about the lack of any presence in the secondary for 2 years and this move is way better than I figured they were capable of making.

    ================================
    It’s refreshing to know that you will disappear by week 3 of the season. Just like you have done for 2 years in a row now.
    your post sounds like the ravings of either a jealous man, or you really know all about sacks in the mouth. What time is your shift at the glory hole over Dewey?
