The Chicago Bears and defensive tackle Tommie Harris have agreed to a four-year, $40 million contract extension that will keep Harris in Chicago through the 2012 season, when he will be 30 years old.
Harris had been skipping voluntary practices because he was upset with his contract, but he has now ensured that he’ll spend the prime of his career with the Bears. The extension was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times and the value of the extension was first reported by Pro Football Talk.
Harris is the perfect defensive tackle for the Lovie Smith defense. He has been chosen for the Pro Bowl in three of his four years in the NFL, and he’s coming off an eight-sack season.
