Chargers Sign Tommie Harris, Place Bob Sanders on IR

Bob Sanders placed on injured reserve...again.

The San Diego Chargers made a couple of roster moves today including signing former Chicago Bears DT Tommie Harris.

In order to to make room for Harris, the Chargers placed safety Bob Sanders on injured reserve. Yeah, that Bob Sanders.

Sanders was a second round pick in the 2004 NFL draft and was All-Pro in just second year with the Indianapolis Colts. However, injuries have plagued him throughout his career and it led to his release in the off-season.

The Chargers signed Sanders to a one-year contract in hopes that he could actually stay healthy for a season, but that proved to not be the case.

The Chargers go from placing a player with two career Pro Bowl’s on injured reserve to signing a three time Pro Bowler in Harris.

Harris spent most of his career with the Chicago Bears but was released in the off-season. The Indianapolis Colts signed Harris but released him during roster cuts.
