Broncos Sign CB Chris Lewis-Harris, Waive CB Taurean Nixon

The Denver Broncos have signed CB Chris Lewis-Harris to a contract on Wednesday and placed CB Taurean Nixon on waivers, according to Nicki Jhabvala.

Lewis-Harris, 28, wound up signing on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Chattanooga back in 2012. He’s currently in the final year of his contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season before testing the open market next year.

The Bengals waived him last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Ravens.

In 2016, Lewis-Harris appeared in 14 games and recorded five tackles, an interception and two pass defenses for the Bengals.

Nixon, 26, was taken in the seventh-round of the 2015 NFL draft. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad.

Denver promoted Nixon to their active roster back in January of last year but was re-signed to the practice squad after being among the team’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

Nixon was on and off of the Broncos’ roster last season.

In 2016, Nixon appeared in two games for the Broncos and recorded one total tackle.
