Tommie Harris DL Ex-Chicago Bears
Tommie Harris was a top 15 pick in the 2004 NFL draft out of Oklahoma by the Chicago Bears where he enjoyed a successful start to his career going to 3 Pro Bowls. Now a free agent, he's made the news for an incident that took place in downtown Wrigleyville.
Harris was arrested and charged with indecent exposure, urinating in public, and assault. Police noticed Harris urinating outside of a bar just before midnight Monday night, and when they approached him he allegedly became enraged and began threatening officers.
In 2008 he signed a 4 year $40 million dollar contract extension with the Bears, but ultimately he would not make it through the contract. After a knee injury Harris' playing time decreased and he lost his starting position in 2010 before being released in 2011. He had a short stint with the Colts (just over 1 month) and last played for the Chargers in 2011.
