Harris LIkely To Get Deal Soon

It is a surprise to no one that the Bears will be looking to lock up defensive tackle Tommie Harris this year or early next.  

Who wouldn't want a guy who with so few years in and already one of the league's best in town for his career?

The Bears will take a wait-and-see approach on quarterback Rex Grossman and wide receiver Bernard Berrian, both entering the final years of their deals, too, but GM Jerry Angelo has sounded more certain talking about an extension for Tomnie Harris. ... The conversation about Harris' next contract likely would start around $25 million in guaranteed money. It could end in the neighborhood of the $30 million bonus defensive end Dwight Freeney received from the Indianapolis Colts

Harris is one of those players that you just don't play games with.  Give him his money and move on.
