The Broncos announced the move - Chris Harris Jr. is signed, sealed and delivered to the orange and blue through the 2019 season, as the Denver Post earlier reported. One of the best cornerbacks in the NFL - perhaps the best cornerback in the NFL - resides in Denver once again.

Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway commented on the transaction.

"Chris is a young, ascending player who has consistently performed at a high level during his first four years in the NFL," Elway said in a statement. "He joined the Broncos as a college free agent and has worked tirelessly to become one of the league's best at his position.

"It's a priority for us to develop and reward our own players as we continue assembling the best possible team. Whether it's on the field or in the community, we are proud to have Chris representing the Broncos for many years to come."
