Probably not but I am not sure it could be much worse.
Thoughts?.....

“I was just released this morning by the Bears. Thank u for the opp to play football n do what I luv. I’m looking toward my next venture,” Harris wrote. “This Business known as the #NFL is a strange one. Chicago I want to thank u for all the luv u have shown me over the yrs. u will b missed.”
Harris was a second team All Pro selection last year, which now just looks odd. He has a $1.095 million contract and can be claimed by any team. He started three games this year and was inactive for another.

Probably not? He was an All-Pro last year... and we have the worst safety core in the NFL. Don't let Jerry Angelo fool you. He is the worst GM in sports history. The dude is worse than Matt Millen. Okay, maybe not, but he is pretty damn close. He is the same guy that almost let Matt Forte go because he didn't want to pay him either. Chris Harris would be a great addition for us. When he is happy, he is a great player. I'm also very sure that he'd LOVE to have revenge against the Bears. He knows the position, he knows the division, I say yes please!

He has a bad hammie and really looked bad against Detroit a couple weeks ago.

Yeah idk, i think id aim for bigger talent back there in the offseason, but we might have good use of a veteran at safety..

Tampa 2 safety in Chicago. All-Pro last year. Strong, smart and can lay a hit on you. Not the fastest guy in the world, but his experience in the system and field smarts allow him to succeed in the 2 deep safety role.

We're still pretty young at safety, I think Frampton is the oldest of the bunch. We could use a veteran like Harris, not only as a starter, but to bring some experience to the group. If the price is right.

I doubt he would be of any help to us....that being said, our safety's are as bad as they come so it sure as hell wouldn't hurt to grab him and find out.

I don't know how the hamstring is yet, but he told the bears he needed another week of recovery, and the Bears told him no. Then when he looked bad against Detroit, they left him out there hanging with the media.

I think we get him... This is a rebuilding year, let's give him time to heal and start building for next year early.

Landmines scattered throughout the field is the only thing that will help our secondary.

Then how about adding CB depth?

Bodden was in the second season of a four-year, $22 million contract. Per the source, the player and the team decided that the relationship wasn’t working out as planned, and that it was time to move on. He appeared in five games with one start this season.

We sure could use help at cornerback. How often do players released by the Pats go on to another team and do well ?
Much safer to hold out for an Eagles, Packers, or Bears reject !
Just being sarcastic here, but it seems like a lot of second tier players that had their better years with other teams end up with the Vikings. I call them dumpster picks.

I'm really unhappy with how the Tampa 2 (or whatever defense we are running now) seemingly kills safety production. Sharper was even run out because of it (his great year the following season proves it was more the scheme than it was the player, IMO).

Now, don't read that into me being upset about Sharp leaving. I'm not mad at that one bit. I'm just perturbed a bit about how no matter who is plugged in back there at safety (SS or FS) the results are the same.

That said, I'm not sure even a healthy Harris would help. But honestly, I don't think it would hurt to try. Right?

Doesn't matter now. The Lions claimed him off waivers.
