Tommie Harris has signed the largest contract given to a defensive tackle in NFL history.
The Bears and Tommie Harris agree to a 4 year extension worth approximately 40 million dollars through 2012. The deal includes 18 million in guaranteed money and 27 million over the next three years.
The contract is also the richest in Bears history.
This is the biggest off season move the Bears could have made. It was the #1 priority of the Bears as well as fans.
Harris, when healthy, is a dominant tackle who can control the line of scrimmage. The Bears can now shift their attention to signing Devin Hester to a new deal and then figure out what has to be done to make Brian Urlacher happy.
