Tommie Harris(notes), the lovable Chicago Bears defensive tackle, was released by the team on Monday after seven years with the club. He'll be a free agent if such a thing exists this summer.
He said goodbye to the city of Chicago on Thursday with this newspaper ad:
That's a class move. In a situation like that, a guy can choose to be bitter and upset on his way out the door, or he can be thankful for his time there and look forward to the next opportunity.
Everyone's better off with the Tommie Harris approach. Some new city will be getting a solid dude.
