Late last night ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that an NFL source has told her that contract talks between the Denver Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. have "stalled a bit".

She goes on to say that the two sides last talked last week after the initial exchange. There was a counter offer, but nothing since then.

Harris is in the midst of his final year of his contract, and is earning himself a big payday come this offseason. According to Pro Football Focus, Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is currently rated as the top corner in the NFL right now.

The Broncos clearly see Harris as a priority, and it's promising that the two sides have already exchanged numbers prior to the offseason. With guys like Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Terrance Knighton and others being free agents at seasons end the Broncos will face some tough decisions going forward.

Locking up Harris will give the Broncos a very talented secondary going forward. Veteran Aqib Talib is signed long term, and rookie Bradley Roby is showing flashes of greatness
