Ex-Bears DT Harris signs with Colts

Former Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris has agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts.

Harris, who made three Pro Bowls with the Bears, was released on Feb. 28 by the Bears. The 14th overall selection in the 2004 draft started 90 of 104 career games for the Bears in seven seasons, but was released in part because of underperformance in 2010, finishing with just 18 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in six starts.

Harris was due a $2.5 million roster bonus in June and was scheduled to make $2.312 million in base salary in 2011.
