The Detroit Lions have signed former Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Harris was released by the Bears earlier this week after he was benched for a string of poor performances. Reports claim that Harris had asked for permission to seek a trade earlier in the season, but eventually the club decided to release him instead.

The seven-year veteran spent four seasons with the Bears and amassed 416 tackles, 12 forced fumbles and 15 interceptions in his career.
