Colts let go of Tommie Harris

A.J. Feeley, Tommie Harris AP

So much for the productive preseason for Tommie Harris.

The Colts cut the former Bears defensive tackle on Saturday, a league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio.

Harris appeared to be a nice fit in Indianapolis and made a few plays in the preseason.

But there’s a reason the Bears cut him, and the Colts apparently didn’t think he could be productive any longer.

    Not a huge fan, but he would help in Green Bay. Lack some depth on the D-Line, where is about the only place lacking depth.

    Waste of talent.

    Wouldn’t mind if the 49ers kicked the tires on this guy. Nothing to lose.

    Wow, his knees must be shot, he is only 28 and was a MONSTER just a few years ago.

    I still think Harris can be a pass rusher. NE is where I think he goes. The colts are a sinking ship anyway

    @boover3, i agree. if he’s healthy and cheap, might not be a bad idea to take look at him in GB. imagine he’d enjoy a chance to show the bears they were wrong about him (they may not have been)

    Either the Colts know something we don’t, or they made a completely STUPID move by cutting him. He did VERY well in this preseason and provided a run stopping force we haven’t had in years. TOTALLY moronic cut. John Chick shouldn’t have been cut either, he had one of the highest motors of anyone on the field when he was playing. Ridiculous.

    I’m really confused about this one. It seemed like he was one his way to starting. He really tore up the Packers’ offensive line in that preseason game. Maybe something happened in practice we don’t know about, but I’m still scratching my head on this move.

    Nothing left in the tank, he’s an empty gas can.

    Completely ripped hammy + a knee injury = no explosion left.

    Told all the fool anti-bear posters on here that he was done.

    This is one of many terrible decisions by the Colts front office today. Bill Polian appears to be back and more incomptent than ever.

    He should just retire I lost respect for him when he signed his extension with the bears then said he would never be 100% again

    Just a week ago everybody (Paul Kuharsky) was all over his nuts about how he’d surely move up in the Colt’s depth chart. Colt’s d-line couldn’t stop Betty White from running up the middle.

    He had his heyday under coach Rivera. Guess who has first claim on the wire?

    What incredibly stupid move by the colts. It was the only free agent signing I liked.

  19. tommytd says: Sep 3, 2011 5:29 PM

    You mean like Denver must have had a reason for letting Cutler go? Harris is a headcase anyway. They will be better off with him gone!

  20. jeffz303 says: Sep 3, 2011 5:30 PM

    He’ll be in a Broncos uniform by Tuesday.

    Worst cut of the day
