Denver Broncos corner Chris Harris has reportedly requested a new contract from the team or a trade.
According to ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter, 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.
Here’s the news from Schefter.

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.
Heading into the 2019 NFL draft, Harris was a major question mark for the Broncos. Reports emerged suggesting the two sides could move on from each other after a fruitful relationship.
Harris was vital part of the Broncos Super Bowl-winning team in 2015. He led the “No Fly Zone” against the Carolina Panthers.
Despite all of the success Harris had with the Broncos, it looks like that could be coming to an end.
After eight years in Denver, Harris could be on a new team ahead of the draft.
