Tommie Harris was a first-round pick of the Bears back in 2004. His promising Bears career was cut short because of injuries which resulted in his release from the Bears in February of 2011. Harris signed with Indianapolis after being cut from the Bears, but didn't make the Colts 53-man roster to start the season.
