Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is very excited about what first-round defensive end Bradley Chubb can do in his first season with the Broncos. "Oh, man, he has all the tools," Harris told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Late Hits. "He kind of looks like a young Khalil Mack. Big, he's around 280, around there. He can move, so I see him being all over the field. I think he'll start. He's been able to be that big of an impact player in OTAs, so I think he'll start next year across from Von (Miller), for sure." Denver needs Chubb to be good in his rookie year across from Von Miller with Shane Ray still dealing with wrist problems. While Chubb might not be the next Khalil Mack, he should be useful in IDP leagues right away.
The Denver Broncos exercised cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s $1.1 million option for the 2018 season, according to a league source. The 28-year-old has developed into one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL, and they'll need him to step up even more with Aqib Talib likely to be traded to open up some salary cap space. Harris had 40 combined tackles, one forced fumble, two interceptions and seven passes defensed in 2017.
Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris is one of the better corners in the game, but a Broncos source told ESPN's Josina Anderson the team would not give Harris a pay raise. Harris has not asked for a raise, but Anderson posed the question anyway, noting Harris is underpaid at $8.5 million per year. "If you're asking for more money and (our record is) 5-11, that's first of all inappropriate," said the source. "And second of all, it's not going to happen." Harris, 29 in June, is under contract for two more seasons.
