Harris says he's leaving Panthers

Carolina safety Chris Harris, who has been known to keep the world aware of his life on his Twitter account (ChrisHarrisNFL), has just announced he’s being traded to the Chicago Bears.

I’ve got calls into the Panthers for confirmation, but we’ve got no reason to doubt Harris’ tweet. He was accurately announcing Carolina’s personnel moves earlier in the offseason, before the public relations office could do it.

We’re not sure what the compensation is and we’ll work on getting that. A bit surprising because Harris has been a very solid performer since joining Carolina in a trade from Chicago. But the Panthers have some young safeties in Charles Godfrey and they just drafted Jordan Pugh. I’ll be back with more details when I get them.
