Potential Chris Harris Jr. trade partners for the BroncosHart and I spoke with Adam and Ian regarding the Chris Harris Jr. situation as it broke. After John Elway told the media he wouldn’t be working on a deal for Chris Harris Jr. until after the draft this weekend, Harris gave Elway and the Broncos an ultimatum. While the fan in me hopes terms can be reached between the two, the fanalyst thinks that is highly unlikely. Christopher Hart and I joined Adam Malnati and Ian St. Clair on the MHR Radio Podcast (iTunes, Spotify, and Stitcher) to digest the Harris news and try to unearth what it all means. So where could the Broncos trade Harris? Ideally it isn’t an AFC team. Given Strap is over 30, it will probably have to be a team that is looking to contend in 2019, or a GM who is hoping to stay off the firing line. My short list:The Arizona CardinalsThe Cardinals currently have Patrick Peterson locking down one spot in their secondary (for how long is anyone’s guess) but just went out to grab Robert Alford this offseason. That’s not great. Then when you stop to consider that Vance Joseph runs the kind of man-heavy scheme that would make the most of Harris’ skillset and has familiarity with him, it makes a lot of sense. What complicates things is the rest of the roster. Unless Kyler Murray proves he’s a phenom like Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck were in their first years at the helm, they’re not close to contending. On the surface it doesn’t seem like General Manager Steve Keim would be interested in trading for an older corner. At least until you consider the fact that Arizona has signed Terrell Suggs (37 in October), Alford (31 in November), and traded for Marcus Gilbert (31) in 2019. Peterson is no spring chicken, and Larry Fitzgerald has one foot in retirement. Combine that with Steve Keim’s shaky job security, and a trade starts to make sense.The Tampa Bay BuccaneersThere’s some serious cap math that would need to smooth out before this deal could come together. Since signing Donovan Smith to a hefty extension, the Bucs are sitting at less than $2 million under the cap right now. One way things could sort themselves out in a hurry is if Jason Licht moves on from defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, which would free $13 million in space.If that were to happen, a Harris would give Bruce Arians and Todd Bowles a lockdown corner for the new defense sorely in need of one. Harris’ age wouldn’t be as big a problem on a team that is hoping to contend right now, future be damned. The Chicago BearsAnother contender that wants to win now and lacks the draft capital to drastically improve the roster is the Chicago Bears. With Fangio coming to Denver Emmanuel Sanders Jersey , Matt Nagy brought in Chuck Pagano to run the defense. That change will bring more man-to-man responsibilities and blitzing. For Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara it won’t be a drastic change as a lot of the coverage shells Fangio uses essentially places the boundary corners in man, but it will be a shift for the new nickel corner trying to replace Bryce Callahan.If Elway and the Broncos are willing to take a 2020 pick they could find a willing trade partner. The Detroit LionsAs I’ve mentioned before, Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia are facing a really hot seat. If the Lions disappoint out the gate it wouldn’t surprise me to see both on the firing line before 2019 ends. Harris could push Jalen Tabor out of the starting lineup and become a standout running mate to Darius Slay. One thing that could cool this possibility is Detroit’s new corner Justin Coleman. He’s locked in as the nickel and has a bit of an overlapping skillset with Strap. The Green Bay PackersThis is another team that could surprise you. Throughout the Ted Thompson era Titletown was more conservative than your great uncle Leonard. Then you look at their recent splash in free agency under General Manager Brian Gutekunst. It makes sense: they have a Super Bowl window that slams shut when Aaron Rodgers (35) hangs’em up. New coach Matt LaFleur kept former defensive boss Mike Pettine, who runs the kind of scheme that could maximize Harris’ talents. Green Bay seemingly has all the corners it could need with their recent draft investment in Joe Jackson, Jaire Alexander, and Kevin King. But Jackson was just “OK” last year, and Harris is a Pro Bowl talent.

MSTShareTweetShareShareBroncos decide not to tender wide receiver Jordan TaylorJake Roth-USA TODAY SportsThe Denver Broncos have decided not to put a tender on restricted free agent and fourth-year wide receiver Jordan Taylor. Taylor has recovered from double hip surgery that knocked him out for the entire 2018 season, but the team is ready to move on.Taylor, 27, entered the league as an undrafted free agent and quickly gained notoriety during his rookie year helping Peyton Manning come back from a foot injury. Ultimately, that work led to Manning rejoining the starting lineup and a Super Bowl championship. With 29 receptions for 351 yards and two touchdowns in 2016-17, it looked like Taylor was poised to push for a larger role on the Broncos offense. The hip surgery and missing an entire season put those hopes on hold. He’ll enter 2019 as a free agent and will look to catch on with another team.The Broncos have three other RFA’s to consider placing tenders on with quarterback Kevin Hogan, defensive end Shelby Harris, and long snapper Casey Kreiter. Of those, I am absolutely certain they will tender Harris who had himself a breakout season in 2018. Kreiter is also coming off a Pro Bowl appearance and may get one as well.
