Safety Harris Picked Up By Rival Lions Off Waivers

The Bears released safety Chris Harris yesterday. Today he was picked up by the division rival Detroit Lions.
Harris was claimed off waivers by the 5-2 Lions, who defeated the Bears back in Week Five. In that game, Harris was beat by Lions WR Calvin Johnson for a 73-yard touchdown pass.

With free safety Louis Delmas also in the lineup, it could be tough for Harris to get time on the field. But he brings experience and first hand knowledge of a lot of Detroits’ opponents.
