Just hours after he was released by the Bears, Tommie Harris said he’s already hearing from other NFL teams that are interested in signing him, and that the team that signs him will get a better player than the Bears had over the last seven years.
“I think my best football is ahead of me,” Harris told Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. “I haven’t hit my prime yet.”
Harris is free to sign with any team right now, although it’s far more likely that he’ll remain a free agent through the lockout. He says he’s ready to get a fresh start somewhere other than Chicago.
“My race was finished,” Harris said. “It was done with the Bears.”
