    There's no doubt that Elway is uncertain whether or not CHJ will drop off or not. Last season CHJ was a top 5 corner that played both outside and the slot, and it still didn't convince Elway to extend him. It's hard to expect CHJ to become even better than the standard he set already, so I don't see why Elway will extend him even if he proves to be a top 5 corner again. We should anticipate this is probably the last season with him unless he signs a team-friendly deal.

    Agreed. Historically he should be remembered like the Rod Smith of the Broncos secondary.

    I understand that sometimes it's advantageous to be Switzerland by not taking sides.

    Not saying I am right on topics as they're my opinion at the time,
    but imagine if every poster on this board pulled a Switzerland?

    I prefer a more interesting approach given it's a message board.

    In this case, I'm on the Broncos side having already expressed my opinion.

    And, no doubt it's a business which is why it's important to sign the best contract possible.

    I'm glad Harris is around this upcoming year, but I could have done without his poor timing and diva attitude.

    As a fan, Harris is expendable but replacing the Broncos is much more difficult.

    Harris is betting on himself . If he plays great football hes gonna get paid . Either from the Broncos or a different team. If he takes a step back or gets hurt he wont get the $$$$ he wants and very well could sign a 3 yr deal and retire a Bronco.

    I have no problem with players doing what they can to increase their earnings just like how teams will do whatever they can to reduce costs. It is just business.

    You gave him 3+ million $ more so that he can run off to another team next year. What a fool' bet. CHJ got paid, but still likely feels betrayed with the FA signings of Callahan and Jackson.
    Another way of looking at it is players see the Broncos are willing to take care of a player without asking for more contract time.

    I think CHJr deserved it and I think the Broncos will get goodwill by doing it.

    Wish we would have waited until after June 1 cuts to make sure we do not need the money to sign someone but we can probably figure that out if we need to.

    It's easy for us fans to dole out money when it isn't ours.

    What's the point of a contract if one side eventually negates on an agreed term?

    I, too, am looking forward to Harris and his "team friendly deal" on the field this year.

    I do not see Harris as a victim. He is a professional that has earned a pay raise by his performance. My response was directed towards comments critical of him “rubbing you the wrong way”.

    Just like other professions, ego about how you compare to your peers or how you use any leverage you might have are realistic responses.

    I don’t begrudge Harris feeling slighted or getting a raise more in line with his accomplishments and impact.

    As I stated, I am less concerned with the Broncos giving their All Pro an extra $4m then I am with them giving Keenum $7m to play for another team . A very expensive mistake that cost them an impact player this year.

    Bottom line, I’m happy to see Harris on the field for the season.

    As for Harris. Hope he and Jackson both play with chips on their shoulders. Secondary should be incredible with those two, Callahan, Parks and Simmons. Even a bit of depth to handle the inevitable hopefully “minor” injuries.

    Add a relentless pass rush and Broncos should be able to rely heavily on a potential top 3 defense!
    From the Derek Wolfe and Todd Davis Q and A on the Broncos web site today, it certainly appears Defensive players are buying into the Fangio Defense

    ... or it means he thought he might get traded.

    Considering we allowed Talib to go in FA rather than renew his contract, there is some precedent for Harris to question whether the team would go younger and cheaper or sign him to a big contract.

    Not everything is about projection and insecurity - Harris or other members here on the MB.

    Edit: Talib was traded to the Rams.
