Broncos Open To Trading CB Chris Harris, DE Derek Wolfe

     

According to Jason La Canfora, the Broncos are open to trading both CB Chris Harris and DE Derek Wolfe ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline. 

Denver has received a lot of interest in both players and appears to be entering fire-sale mode following the trade of WR Emmanuel Sanders

Both Harris and Wolfe are in the final year of their respective contracts and set to be unrestricted free agents in 2020, so it would make a lot of sense for the Broncos to auction them off for the highest return before the deadline. 

La Canfora mentions the Colts, Ravens and Eagles as teams that have expressed interest in Wolfe, while the Eagles and the Chiefs are Denver’s top two suitors for Harris. 

Harris, 30, 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 was entering the final year of his five-year, $42.5 million contract that included a $10 million signing bonus and was set to make a base salary of $7.8 million for the 2019 season when Denver signed him to a new, one-year, $12.05 million deal this offseason.

In 2019, Harris has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and recorded 19 total tackles, one forced fumble, one interception and three pass defense.

Wolfe, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $36.7 million contract that included $17.5 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $8 million for the 2019 season.

In 2019, Wolfe has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and recorded 19 total tackles with two sacks. He’s rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 64 interior defender out of 112 qualifying players.
