Chris Harris Released by Bears, Chargers Could be Interested

The Chicago Bears released safety Chris Harris today. Harris had been benched earlier in the season and had asked for a trade. Instead, the Bears decided to let him go.

According to Kevin Acee, the Chargers could have interest in the safety, but he would have to get through waivers and drop to us. There may be a couple of teams that could possibly claim him before us. One of those teams is our division rival Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs lost Eric Berry for the season and could be looking to add more depth.

As for the Bolts, we lost Bob Sanders earlier in the year and it forced Steve Gregory to the starting lineup. Harris could compete for the starting role alongside Eric Weddle. Harris is a big hitter and could be a nice play maker to add to our secondary. Hopefully he drops to us and we take advantage of the opportunity.

    @epadaon anything to get Gregory outta the line up. He’s garbage.

    • BB_Chargers

      @TheMuttKing it would be sweet, gregory can work back in the nickel.. much better for him

  • iamjoeking

    @epadaon hasn’t he been around long enough to be a free agent?

    • BB_Chargers

      @iamjoeking yea… but because he was cut he has to go through waivers first

  • rickcnsdca

    Sign Harris and dump Crayton. Any moron could see improvements from that.

      @RickClaude sign harris for sure, but i think there is a better move than dropping our slot receiver. but crayton hasnt done much this season either! if they make that move, i would not be surprised at all!

    Weddle is one of the best DBs in the league, no way this guy would take his spot.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

      @dankellett83 he wouldnt be used to take over for weddle.. he would start next to weddle

  • KaliBoltWolf

    I heard the Lions nabbed him. Anyone?

  • KaliBoltWolf

    I heard Detroit got him. Anyone?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

      @KaliBoltWolf detroit picked him up… we had a higher priority in the waiver order and let him pass by

      • KaliBoltWolf

        @epadaon Figures. Oh well. Not like he could make our D stronger. Least he’s out of our division
