With Chris Harris returning to Chicago via a trade with the Panthers, the Bears had an extra safety on the roster. So they’ve sent Kevin Payne to St. Louis.
The team announced the move within the past 30 minutes.
A fifth-round pick in the 2007 draft, Payne started 22 games in three seasons. The Bears have received from the Rams an “undisclosed” 2011 draft pick.
That said, there’s a chance the Rams will choose to disclose the pick that has been sent to Chicago, especially if it’s something like a conditional seventh rounder.
