"I don't have time right now", Elway said during his pre-draft news conference. It's been frequently said over the last 24 hours that Harris is "coming off a broken leg", but that leaves out the fact that Harris recovered from his injury in time for the Pro Bowl earlier this year. "It doesn't mean we're going to do it".
Harris is in the final year of his deal, which could make trading for him hard with the prospect of having to re-sign him to a big money deal, but Roseman could indeed send one or two of his cornerbacks and a mid-to-late-round pick back to the Broncos for Harris. "In the media", Harris said via text. "We're busy with the draft". According to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, Harris is on the books for $7.9 million for the 2019-20 season, a significantly lower rate than what newly signed corner Kareem Jackson (3 years, $33 million) got this offseason.
The last remaining member of the "No Fly Zone" secondary that was the backbone of Denver's Super Bowl 50 triumph, Harris is the only defensive back in the National Football League with multiple interceptions in each of the last seven seasons.
