Broncos & CB Chris Harris Moving Closer Towards Deal


Mike Klis of 9 News reports that Broncos executive VP John Elway met with CB Chris Harris‘ agent over the weekend and it appears as though the two sides are moving closer to a deal. 

Klis specifically mentions that this would be a “contract adjustment” which implies a long-term extension may not be coming. 

The sides have exchanged multiple offers in recent weeks, so there has been some optimism that they’ll be able to come to some sort of amicable solution. 

Klis reported last week that the Broncos offered a “straight pay increase” to Harris, whose price “has come down” from his initial asking price of over $15 million. 

While Harris previously requested a trade, the Broncos have maintained that they have no plans to do so. 

Harris, 29, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas back in 2011. He has played all seven years of his NFL career in Denver.

Harris is entering the final year of his five-year, $42.5 million contract that included a $10 million signing bonus and stands to make a base salary of $7.8 million for the 2019 season.

In 2018, Harris appeared in 11 games for the Broncos and recorded 48 tackles, one sack, three interceptions returned for a touchdown and 10 pass defenses.

We’ll have more regarding Harris as the news is available.
