Earlier this year, Denver Broncos gave their Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris a new deal that significantly increased his salary. It also allowed Harris to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and to look for a long term contract on the open market.
This is why Harris intends to push for another productive year and to prove he is worthy of a sizable investment.
“It’s a big relief just to go out there and focus on doing my thing this year, knowing that next year I got an opportunity to cash in and be able to dictate the rest of my life and career and I’m excited about that,”- said Harris during his appearance on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Wednesday.
Although Harris will definitely test his options, there is no doubt in his mind that he would like to remain in Denver and to retire as a member of Broncos.
“I’ve always wanted to retire a Bronco and finish my career there,” – he added. “Going on Year 9, so this is a huge year for me so hopefully after this year they’ll want to lock me up and keep me here for life.”
Chris Harris spent his entire career with the Broncos, who signed him as an undrafted free agent back in 2011. During his time with the organization, Harris established himself as one of the best corners in the game and managed to help the team win the Super Bowl in 2015. His career highlights include four Pro Bowl appearances and First-Team All-Pro honors in 2016.
