Harris Says the Bears Should For Sure Go After Panthers WR Smith


When the lockout finally ends, Chris Harris perhaps can work on persuading the Bears to make a move he already has discussed with Steve Smith according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

There is a belief the Panthers will look to trade the 32-year-old wide receiver when player movement can begin. One report earlier this summer indicated he could be available for a third-round draft pick, something Harris no doubt would like Jerry Angelo and the Bears to consider.

“If the opportunity is there, why not?” Harris said during a visit on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on WMVP-AM 1000. “You can never have enough big-time playmakers on your team.”

Harris has worked out with Smith during the offseason and says he is “looking just as good as he’s been.” He joked that he could show the newcomer the city. They were teammates with the Panthers for three seasons and Smith could be looking to escape the rebuilding situation in Carolina and seek a competitive team.

    Would be great fit. Works perfect for Martz system and dude has winning attitude. He goes balls out all the time. Maybe a 4th rounder tho he getting a lil old.

    I would even go as far as to trade a 3rd, possibly a 2nd.

    3rd i could deal with. 2nd is pushing it we aging at multiple positions draft picks are essential for future

    Just imagine Jay bombing away deep to Smith. How about screen passes? I mean, he never goes down on the first tackle, the guy’s a warrior competitor.
