The Bears got a big win on Sunday night, but not everyone on the team is happy.

Safety Chris Harris, benched last week and then deactivated for the game against the Vikings, asked for a trade on Monday. Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago made the first report of Harris’ intentions and Harris’ agent tweeted on Monday morning that the team has granted him permission to seek a deal. The trade deadline is Tuesday.

Before the benching, Harris was hoping to get a contract extension from the Bears but those thoughts went out the window when Harris was put on the bench. Harris, who missed three games this year with a hamstring injury, could be of interest to teams who haven’t seen much production from the safety spot this year.

The Colts and the Cardinals could be in the market for help at the position after injuries to their starters this season.
