Latest On Broncos & Chris Harris


Troy Renck reports that the Broncos have made their first contract offer to CB Chris Harris‘ representation but there is still “plenty of distance” to make towards finalizing a deal. 

According to Mike Klis, Harris’ agent and Broncos GM John Elway have “exchanged offers” but it may “take some time” before a contract is reached. 

Earlier this week, it was also reported that Frederick Lyles, the agent for Harris, met with Elway the previous week regarding his contract situation. (NFLTR)

Harris is reportedly seeking an annual salary of over $15 million, which is the same as they were asking for earlier this offseason. 

The Broncos informed Harris that they will not trade him, even though one team expressed interest in acquiring him before this year’s draft.

Harris has clearly outplayed his contract and is in line for a sizeable extension at some point. 

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.
