Tommie Harris' letter to Chicago Bears fans

Courtesy of the Chicago Tribune:

"Words cannot express my heartfelt appreciation for your support throughout my seven seasons with the Chicago Bears,

From the moment I first stepped off the plane back in 2004, I have felt the warmth of your welcome. I have been embraced by this great city and have come to know it as my home. I consider myself as much as a Chicagoan as a Texan."

"You have cheered with me in our victories, and I don't think I could ever get tired of hearing your roar as I am introduced before a game!
"You have expressed your concern over my injuries.Thousands of you have sent letters, cards and e-mails over the years wishing me well.

"I will deeply miss my teammates whose camaraderie on and off the field is unmatched. I could not imagine going into battle with a better group of guys.

"I have met so many of you in person, and you are always so kind and friendly. I will miss each and every one of you.

"I could have never asked for better teammates, better fans or a better city.

"So, thank you, Chicago. It's been a great run!"

Tommie Harris, The Real Deal.

Tommie, you definitely contributed some big things to the Bears during your tenure, and we wish you the best of luck at your next stop.  Thank you.
