Chris Harris wants to be traded

The Bears got a big win on Sunday night, but not everyone on the team is happy.

Safety Chris Harris, benched last week and then deactivated for the game against the Vikings, asked for a trade on Monday. Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago made the first report of Harris’ intentions and Harris’ agent tweeted on Monday morning that the team has granted him permission to seek a deal. The trade deadline is Tuesday.

Before the benching, Harris was hoping to get a contract extension from the Bears but those thoughts went out the window when Harris was put on the bench. Harris, who missed three games this year with a hamstring injury, could be of interest to teams who haven’t seen much production from the safety spot this year.

The Colts and the Cardinals could be in the market for help at the position after injuries to their starters this season.

  1. Harris should have spent more time on film and conditioning instead of Twitter. He looked slow and out of shape. Lovie, when it comes to talent, can’t tell a zero from a hero.

    Wonder why he’s not forcing Meriweather out, too?

  2. It’s pretty ridiculous that Harris has been scapegoated by the Bears as the reason for bad safety play. He was part of it, yes, but he also came back too early from a nagging hamstring injury (it was obvious last week watching him hobble after Calvin Johnson).

    The safety play had been atrocious the last 4 weeks before last night, but Harris hadn’t played since Atlanta so it’s not as if it’s his fault that Major Wright, Brandon Meriweather and Craig Steltz were terrible.

    Yet another case of terrible player management by Chicago.

  3. I learned a long time ago that if you treat every day like its your first day, you’ll go further.

    If CEOs worked as hard as unpaid interns America wouldnt be in this mess; and if Chris Harris worked as hard as an undrafted free agent rookie and played special teams he wouldnt have been on the sidelines last night.

    Dont give him a trade, just demand he work harder.

  4. Spend less time on Twitter and more time trying to keep your job.

    Twitter is for 12 year old girls.

  5. The Bears secondary, and in particular safety play, looked a heckuva lot better against the Vikings than it did against the Lions. Of course, the Vikings don’t have a receiver approaching the ability of Calvin Johnson.

  6. Guy blows up lead blockers like you only see in movies… would welcome him back to Carolina as well.

    Maybe can’t cover the deep ball, but sure as hell can help our run D packages.

  7. Yes, please go.

    He was too proud to play special teams yesterday, so Lovie sat him.

    Any team wanting him, just understand that pass defense is his weaknesses.

  8. After watching last night’s game, it’s painfully obvious the Vikings could use his services in their secondary.

    He certainly couldn’t do any worse than the safeties the Vikings have now.

  9. No wonder he wants a trade after stinking up the joint. Now, his backup rookie Chris Conte looked pretty good against Vikes last night and will likely be the future starter.
