Bears were close to obtaining OT Ryan Harris
The Broncos reportedly attempted to deal RT Ryan Harris before last season's trade deadline.
They talked trade with the Raiders, Bills, Redskins, Texans, and Bears. Of those teams, the Bears "had the strongest possibility" of acquiring Harris. A six-week ankle injury likely scuttled Chicago's plans to strike a deal. Harris is due to hit free agency this offseason. The Broncos have made it clear that he's not a priority, so expect them to move on at right tackle.
The part that I like about this the most is the price tag, which would be much smaller then some of the other options at LT.
I agree that Harris should be looked at as a LT and come in and compete, and take the job from Chris Williams.
Harris is a great athlete that has been hurt by injuries so his lighter price tag may allow the Bears to also sign an OG.
