Report: Broncos won’t trade Chris Harris

  • Broncos General Manager John Elway said he would speak to the agent for cornerback Chris Harris about Harris’ contract after the draft and that conversation has reportedly taken place.
  • It doesn’t sound like it was too different than the ones the two sides had earlier in the offseason.
  • Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Harris, who has not been at the team’s offseason workouts, is still looking for a deal that tops $15 million a year.
  • Harris requested a trade in the event that the Broncos didn’t meet his demand, but Klis reports that the Broncos will not trade the veteran.
  • The team is expected to present a counteroffer to Harris next week that is not expected to match Harris’ demand.
  • If the impasse remains in place, the next decision for Harris will be whether to attend the team’s mandatory minicamp in June.
  • He can be fined if he fails to attend those practice sessions.
