Earlier this week, Denver Broncos corner Chris Harris reportedly requested a new contract from the team or a trade.

According to ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, just before the NFL draft, Harris gave the Broncos an ultimatum to either give him a new deal or ship him to a new team.

Harris, a former All-Pro and four-time Pro-Bowl corner, is headed into the final year of his 5-year, $42,500,000 contract signed back in 2015.

Just two days later, it appears the Broncos are willing to grant his wish of a trade.

According to NFL insider James Palmer and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Denver received several calls about the star corner.

The Broncos picked up Harris' option before the 2018 season, which allowed him to earn $8.5 million for the year.

Harris started the first 12 games before suffering a broken fibula in Week 14. The star corner missed the next two games before Denver placed him on the injured reserve.

Denver could look to package a pick along with Harris in an attempt to move up in the draft tonight. The Broncos traded down to No. 20 in the first round, selecting tight end Noah Fant.

The Pittsburgh Steelers shipped a second and 2020 third-round pick to Denver as compensation.

Stay tuned for the latest.
