Texans with Interst In Ex-Bears DT Tommie Harris As A 3-4 End?

Seven-year veteran defensive tackle and three-time Pro Bowl performer Tommie Harris, released by Chicago two weeks ago, recently suggested he will return to the game “on [his] terms.” But if the 27-year-old Harris will at least consider someone else’s terms, he could probably hasten a potential comeback a bit. Two personnel officials from 3-4 teams told The Sports Xchange this week that they were perusing video of Harris to gauge whether the former first-rounder might be able to play some at end.

Harris has always been a 4-3 tackle and not played at the “five-technique” spot in the past. But at 295 pounds, he might be worth a gamble, although tackle still remains his preferred position. “If he can still hold up against the run, and is willing to [subjugate] himself a little, he might be worth a look,” one of the personnel men said. “It could be a stretch, but maybe worth considering.”
