Default Tommie Harris to be released?

Per NFLN, Tommie Harris is a strong candidate to be released before he is due a 2.5 million roster bonus. Interesting...

he is more of a 4/3 tackle than a 3/4 nose. could he move to a 3/4 end? that's a med question!

Harris is a pure 4-3 undertackle, he doesn't play with the power necesary to man the end in a 30 front.

That would be shocking to me....

He has not been as good the last few years, but he is still their top DL in an aging group.

That makes NO sense. None.

Well, they are allegedly meeting with Peppers agent. Still, it was surprising to me when I heard it. I think he could play 3-4 DE in a rotation.

Shanny wanted to draft him so he'll get a good look from the skins

It would signal that they're going to make a strong push for the likes of Peppers and Rolle and need to cut salary where possible. They're desperate.

I can't believe duh bears would let the only quality on Dline they have go even if he has been playing at 50-80% for the last 4 years.

There is no way I want Harris on the Broncos. The dude isn't worth it anymore and he would not fit in a 3-4 even coming off the bench.

I bet they go 4-3 some of the time with a hybrid approach. I'd be suprised if Shanny lets go of his prized 4-3 totally. Anyway I think alot of nfl guys think of picking up guys they liked in a draft later on when they hit the market. Even if he doesn't fit the system exactly.
