Tight end Demetrius Harris didn’t need long to find a new home.

Harris signed a one-year deal with the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. Harris’ signing comes only two days after the Browns cut him.

Harris, 28, has familiarity with Bears coach Matt Nagy, having played for him in Kansas City.

The Bears needed help at the position with Trey Burton undergoing postseason hip surgery and Adam Shaheen missing 15 games last season with injuries.

Harris signed a two-year, $6 million deal with Browns last offseason but caught only 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns.

In five seasons in Kansas City, Harris made 57 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns.

  1. The Bears need a lot of help on offense. Shaheen is a total bust and Burton got paid and just faded away. Both of them were totally useless.

  2. “In five seasons in Kansas City, Harris made 57 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns” not impressed, those would be a bad season for a top tight end.

  3. Ummmm…..he can’t catch the ball. He became known in KC as “Incompletrious” Harris during his days here.

  4. Harris dropped as many passes as he caught in Kansas City. He was a pet of John Dorsey, which is the only reason he signed with the Browns. His one claim to fame was catching the “Tebow Pop Pass” from Dontari Poe for a TD against Denver.

  5. This was a great signing, great blocker.

    Coach of the Year – Nagy made a great move here. Too bad Patricia will never even touch a positive overall record or CoY for that matter because he will be fired within 10 months or less.

  6. “Harris dropped as many passes as he caught in Kansas City. ”

    Good thing he’s an excellent blocker and was acquired for that purpose. The Bears offensive needs all the help it can get.

    Good thing he’s an excellent blocker and was acquired for that purpose. The Bears offensive line needs all the help it can get.
