ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has agreed with the Broncos on a new one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

The restructured deal will keep Harris in Denver through at least the end of the 2019 season.

“We have a lot of respect for Chris as a player and for everything he’s meant to our organization," President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said. "This contract adjustment recognizes his value to our team and the high expectations we have for Chris as a Bronco this season and hopefully for years to come.”

Harris, a former undrafted player, has made four Pro Bowls and earned one first-team All-Pro selection during his eight-year career with the Broncos.

He turned in his latest Pro Bowl season in 2018, despite playing in only 12 games. During that stint, he recorded three interceptions, one touchdown and 10 passes defensed.

No other player in the NFL has recorded multiple interceptions in each of the last seven seasons.

Harris joins newcomers Kareem Jackson and Bryce Callahan in a new-look secondary.

The Broncos will finish OTAs this week before wrapping up the offseason program with next week’s mandatory veteran minicamp.
