The Bears want to fix a mistake they made three years ago.
Panthers safety Chris Harris tweeted that he is headed back to Chicago in a trade. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune says the move could involve a veteran linebacker from the Bears. Harris confirms the trade is not official yet.
Harris was dealt in 2007 for a fifth-round pick to open up playing time for Adam Archuleta. That didn't work out so well.
In Carolina, Harris had three workmanlike years, missing only four starts. He may just be league average for a starting safety, but average would be a big upgrade for the Bears.
Expect Harris to start every game this season as he immediately becomes the best safety on the roster.
