    That should help clear up the logjam at safety in Chicago.

      You know the Panthers have lousy safeties when they have to trade for one of the Bears safeties, let alone one buried in the depth chart.

        ? Archuletta, Brown, and Manning. The Bears have very good depth at safety this season.

          If you can get a decent player for minimal cost, you make the move. It's not a huge deal, but it could help both teams.

              He was pretty good his rookie year, iirc. Although I don't believe he played much last year.

                i mean, chris harris did pick off peyton manning in the superbowl on a pass heading for reggie wayne. basically the only reason why people would know that name.
                and i mean, as a seventh round pick, anything higher than seven that we get for him is considered a win considering this.

                if the bears traded at the safety spot that means three things:
                one: archuleta is ready.
                two: brown is ready.
                three: mcgowan or everett looks good enough to be a backup safety.

                  Wasn't he the guy who blew the coverage that led to the Wayne touchdown?

                    I think that might have been Manning, not sure though.

                    Harris isn't amazing, but he's better than Nate Salley.

                    That is correct comahan

                      chris harris played a well filling in for an injured mike brown last season, saw a good amount of playing time...and mike brown has been really good in camp so far, he hasn't really shown any signs of injury from the past year, but it again is still early...and we have a lot of depth at safety (brown, manning, archuleta, payne, mcgowan, everett) all of whom have looked good so far, so there really was no need to keep harris...and archuleta will prolly be predominately in against the run, with brown and manning starting at SS and FS

                        Harris played pretty well the last 2 years

                          I'm fine with the deal for us. I'm not so sure how big of a help this is for Carolina overall. Harris is a decent-solid safety, but his flaws in coverage can get exposed.

                            It could very well be safety-by-committee down here in Carolina next season. Mike Minter has one spot sealed up, but the other is up for grabs at the moment. Another body with NFL and postseason experience like Harris could be valuable.

                            ESPN says it was a fifth-round pick.

                              Minter doesn't have that spot sealed up at all though. He took a big pay cut to stay with the team. That means they were looking to go somewhere else at Safety. They can't let familiarity play too big a role at this point.

                              As for his coverage skills, I doubt they are any worse than Marlon McCree's, who played great for us.
