Good morning, Broncos Country.
A lot can happen in just a short amount of time. Yesterday's action-packed and drama-filled headline surrounding the Denver Broncos was living proof of that. In case you missed it, here is the Cliff Notes version of what has been transpired in the past 24 hours. negotiations with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. Elway responded quickly and bluntly, stating he didn't have time to work on a contract extension for Chris Harris Jr. By late last evening, the All-Pro cornerback had fired off a strong message of his own – pay me or trade me. Two emotionally-fueled comments in a short span of time, probably culminating in a prime example, signifying the art of breaking up. [InmyopinionElway'scommentswereinpoortasteRatherthanstatinghe"didnothavetime" he could have simply remarked, "It's a situation we look forward to addressing once the draft is over. Chris has been a tremendous player for our franchise and we are doing what we can do with him. ”
Sorry are giving CHJR fifteen million dollars a year in a new deal. On the bright side, there should be plenty of teams interested in him via trade. It's going to be a crazy rest of the week! . While he is busy with draft preparations, he has no time at all to work on contract extension parameters is downright dubious. Unsurprisingly, his comments were viewed negatively by Harris Jr. ̵1; who has no issues releasing retaliatory statements outlining his contractual / situational demands.
Does that mean his demands were reasonable? I'm not so certain. Fifteen million dollars a year is quite a price to invest on a cornerback who is likely to be nearing the end of his career. On the outside looking in, it's quite obvious that there is literally a snowball's chance in Hell that the team actually caves to those demands.
has been a stand-out performer for the franchise and outperformed his current contract. I hate to see him traded, but from a business perspective, I completely understand that Elway and the Broncos would have a hard time making him the highest paid corner in the league.
All things considered, I expect two parties to finalize their divorce within the next 48 hours. Unfortunately, the Broncos will probably get appropriate value for Harris Jr. and will probably end up settling for far less than what he is truly worth. If this is the end for Harris Jr. in Denver, like to extend my personal thanks for all he has done for the Broncos Country.
All good things come to an end.
