Chris Harris Jr. suggests trade is imminent

The Denver Broncos might very well move on from their most experienced and talented cornerback here soon. One day after it was reported that Pro Bowl corner Chris Harris has demanded either a pay raise or to be traded, the veteran is noting that he believes something will happen here soon. Given how rocky the relationship has been between Harris and the Broncos' brass, this could easily mean that a trade is imminent. At issue here is Harris’ salary. Despite being one of the best slot...

John Elway has earned the benefit of the doubt in player negotiations

While John Elway has tended to play hard ball in the past, his moves have generally turned out for the best.

John Elway certainly has earned a reputation for playing hardball with negotiations. This has been met with mixed reactions from fans (including myself), and players.

While I don’t necessarily like to see veteran players cut and team stalwarts not retained due to age or salary, I believe Elway has earned a little bit of a a long leash specifically in these types of situations.

Chris Harris wants to stay with Broncos

The Broncos are listening to trade offers for cornerback Chris Harris Jr., Mike Klis of 9News hears. Meanwhile, Harris says his preference is to stay put — though he wants a new contract if he is to remain in Denver. “Oh, yeah, definitely,’’ Harris said when asked if fences can be mended. “I want to be here so we can salvage it.’’ When asked how his tenuous relationship with the team can be saved, Harris replied: “You know how.” The Broncos, Klis hears, "won’t give him...

Chris Harris Jr. isn’t ready to close the door on the Broncos

The Denver Broncos blinked first, but Chris Harris Jr. didn’t waste time letting everyone know the door is still open between him and the team

The ongoing drama between Chris Harris Jr. and the Denver Broncos appeared to be heading towards an ugly divorce, but one side has at least attempted to stall this escalating event. Harris walked back the escalation with a reconciliatory tone in recent comments to the media.

Fight between Chris Harris' agent, Broncos sparked ultimatum

Broncos Wednesday Mock Draft - The Nightmare

Welcome to my hell.

If you’ve been reading up on my Big Board lists, you probably have a pretty good idea what my ideal draft would look like. It would start off with Ed Oliver falling into the Broncos’ lap, veer into a slider like Chris Lindstrom, Dalton Risner, or N’Keal Harry hanging out at 41 and end with a couple of my favorite sleepers like Ben Burr-Kirven, Brett Rypien, and Kahale Warring.

This isn’t that kind of draft. In fact, this is the worst possible scenario that I...

Chris Harris wants a new contract or a trade

Chris Harris wants a new contract from the Broncos that will pay him more than $15M/year or a trade to a club that will give him the deal he desires. Right now, it sounds like the latter scenario is more likely. The Broncos are unwilling to meet his demands, Mike Klis of 9News hears. Harris is entering the final year of a five-year extension he signed in December 2014. The deal has him tied for 24th in the league in terms of average annual value. Meanwhile, he’s among the very best at his...

The 2019 Prospect who most resembles Chris Harris Jr.

If John Elway is looking for a Chris Harris Jr. clone he should grab himself a Wolverine.

Last night the bombshell dropped. Chris Harris Jr. wants a new contract or a new team. In light of that revelation John Elway enters the 2019 draft with a much bigger hole in the secondary than anyone anticipated. Heck it wasn’t two months ago that Kareem Jackson and Bryce Callahan had Broncos Country fighting to coin a new moniker for a rebuilt No Fly Zone.

FanPulse: The biggest need on the Broncos isn’t quarterback

Denver Broncos fans are hoping the team looks at the inside linebacker position in the 2019 NFL Draft. Devin Bush, anyone?

The Denver Broncos are keeping their interests in the 2019 NFL Draft close to the vest, but do appear to be moving away from drafting a quarterback. A decision that completely annihilates the thought process behind our pick in SB Nation’s annual writer’s mock this year.

If not a quarterback, then where are the teams biggest positional needs heading into the draft?...

Yesterday afternoon, Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway stated he “didn’t have time” to address a revised contract for star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. Several hours later, the All-Pro defensive back fired back with a simple demand — pay me or trade me.
