No big surprise here, but per Gridiron Assassin at www.cbfans.com, Brad Biggs of the Sun-Times is reporting that the initial 2 days of contract talks between Tommie Harris’ agents and the Bears have ended without a deal.
This is no surprise; Harris has one year left on his rookie contract, and the franchise tag is definitely an option for the 2009 season. Even though according to Harris, he doesn’t seem to believe it exists. “The franchise tag isn’t even a figment of my imagination,” Harris said on Tuesday. Huh?
