Let Me Hold A Few Of Dem Dollahs Bruh...

Twin trying to do it big!



LAKE FOREST, Ill. - On a busy Wednesday at Halas Hall, the Bears conducted the first of 14 OTA practice sessions and signed sixth-round draft pick Chris Harris to a four-year contract.

Harris, a safety from Louisiana-Monroe, is the first Bears draft pick to come to terms.

"It's a big relief, finally going ahead and getting it done," Harris said. "There's no sense in waiting on it. We got a good deal, so I decided to go ahead and sign."

Of the 255 players selected in the 2005 NFL Draft, Harris is just the sixth to sign a contract.

"I don't see any reason to wait," he said. "A lot of guys wait because they want to see what this guy got and try to match, but honestly I think you probably get your best deal if you go ahead and get it done earlier than later."

Harris, a smart, physical 6-1, 206-pounder who registered 96 tackles and seven interceptions last season at Louisiana-Monroe, is beginning to feel comfortable with the Bears.

"Everything's going a lot smoother than the first couple minicamps, just finally getting the concepts where you can actually play and not think," Harris said. "There's a lot less thinking going on now and I can do more reacting."

Usually I don't post on weekends, but this was well worth it...I'll keep you posted

How wonderful! I can't wait to see him on the field doing his thing. I know everyone must be so proud. I've heard it said that a player has a greater chance of being struck by lightening than getting into the NFL. Guess they didn't know that your brother is lightening. Pass on the congrats to him.
