Chris Harris wants to spend the rest of his career with the Bears.
All five of Chris Harris' interceptions last year came during the last nine weeks of the regular season.In the latest entry on his online blog at www.hitmanharris.com, the veteran safety writes: “I have one year left on my contract, and I hope there are many more to come in Chicago.
“I want to finish my career here; but, unfortunately, I can’t be promised that will happen at this stage of the game, because my fate lies in the hands of the Bears organization.
“But, I can promise you this: I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing throughout the previous six years, which is play my butt off in hopes that we can do what we did back in ’85 all over again.
“How sweet would that be? Maybe if we can get this season up and running we’ll be able to tackle that goal sooner rather than later.”
Harris has played three of his six NFL seasons with the Bears. He spent his first two years in Chicago in 2006-07 before being traded to the Carolina Panthers. Harris was then reacquired on April 27, 2010 and helped solidify the secondary last season, tying for the team lead with five interceptions while also recording 96 tackles and two fumble recoveries
