Contract Talks With Tommie Harris Broke Off

The Bears, Tommie Harris and his agent Drew Rosenhaus have left the table, but that is not actually a bad thing.  They didn't leave at an impasse or on bad terms, they just needed to step away for awhile.

It is believed that the Bears have offered Harris more money than Tommie Kelly was overpaid in Oakland.  The deal would make Harris the highest paid defensive tackle in the league.

Harris wants to play in Chicago, but still wants to be paid as an elite player and have one more shot at free agency when he turns thirty.
