  • harris says he will be ready for season - rehab status

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – While much of the NFL enjoys some R&R during the early portion of the offseason, those two letters stand for something different in the eyes of Chris Harris Jr.
    For the fourth-year cornerback, his offseason R&R isn't rest and relaxation — it's rise and rehab.
    Harris’ mornings begin at 7:30 a.m. at the Broncos’ Dove Valley headquarters. Five days a week, Harris spends five hours a day at the team’s facility rehabbing from the ACL injury he suffered during the Broncos’ Divisional-Round win vs. San Diego.
    “Oh, I haven’t missed a day,” Harris said. “I just wanted to make sure I come back next year better physically, mentally and everything. I knew that in order to come back, I had to be in here every day and put the work in and follow their instructions.”
    Upon arrival, the first step in Harris’ daily rehab regimen is pool work. Then he hits the bike for a bit before working on strengthening his knee. Last on the agenda is core work.
    “I’ve done so much core work now, it’s ridiculous,” Harris laughed. “Just really maintaining all the other muscles and strengthening this left leg. So whenever they say it’s time for me to run, I’ll be ready to go.”
    Harris is hoping to come back and build upon a 2013 campaign that saw him tie for the club lead with three interceptions. His 65 tackles a year ago were second-most among Broncos’ defensive backs

    If Webster can improve and become a good nickel corner we will really be in good shape on defense.

      The best cure for a bad or average secondary is a front 7 that can cause QB pressure. Just look at Seattle. It is really easy to claim you are the best in the game when you reap the rewards of your front 7 disrupting the offense.

      Now with Von returning to form...hopefully. Ware here and uninjured, Jackson with another year under his belt, Wolfe returning, Pot Roast playing the way he was in the playoffs. This front 7 could really make things easy for our secondary.

        I would still love for a CB we have high on the list to fall to us, maybe be able to keep Harris at the nickel. I love him there. Not going to complain if we have him playing on the outside with Talib though, as long as Webster develops. I think a CB will be taken in the first 3 rounds.

          A hungry Pot Roast coming into a contract year could be awesome.

            I think that Harris will start, but may move inside on the nickel and have Webster fill in the opposite side. Talib with the best outside receiver, Harris with the slot, and Webster on the other outside WR. Big Physical corners on the outside, play press coverage, and make them work to get off the line. Meanwhile Von, Wolfe, Jackson and Ware coming at you on the rush.

            But I agree about drafting a CB. Need depth and insurance incase Webster can't take a step forward this year.

              I am not sure Broncos are going to be able to re-sign Harris after this year is over. He's going to be looking to for a top of the market contract. It might be a little rich for them, not sure.

              $7M-$10M per year, if he has the year we all expect him to.

                Harris has been a starting CB for 2 years now. And a very good one too. Even if Denver takes a CB in the 1st, I expect the starting CB to be Talib and Harris (like back when they were Jayhawks).

                  I agree. We'll draft a CB but not sure when, I'm thinking it will be rounds 1 or 2. I think Webster could be a real stud if he improved his coverage skills. Dude is a physical CB and I love that but he'll have to improve coverage to beat out Harris for the outside. I love Harris as the Nickle. He has such a great feel for that position.

                    And I am fine with that scenario. Just feel like the nickel is his more natural position, and as price said above I don't think we will be able to retain him next year. Having another guy with experience on the outside could be beneficial if he indeed does walk after next season. To me, the verdict is still out on Webster.

                      Yep. Idk if Webster can overtake Harris, but we shall see. This will be a big year on seeing how good of a player Webster is going to be, IMO.

                        I wish we had 1 more corner we could trust.

                          It's coming in the draft. I'd be very surprised if we don't take one in the first two rounds, possibly the first if Mosley and Shazier are off the board. I was thinking a guard in the first, but after the signing of Montgomery, don't see it.

                            Elway broke my heart last yr not taking Lacy or Warford. This yr for me it's Xavier Su Fila and CB Jason Verrett. Verrett played Odell Beckham very well and I like what i hear about him. I watched some footage and he looks smooth even though he is still raw. Runs a 4.4, plays physical.

                              I disagree that he's better suited for nickle. He's excellent in the slot, but he's fantastic on the outside as well--so he's best suited exactly how he is being used, which is as a starting CB.

                              As for retaining Harris long term, we watched this team move from Tebow to Manning then go Madden this offseason. It's way too early to say definitively whether Denver can retain Harris and what his contract demands are. That's actually irrelevent to whether he is the #2 or #3 CB this year though imo. I am positive he'll be the #2 CB if he's healthy regardless of a CB taken in the 1st or not.
