LAS VEGAS — Count Von Miller among those who were glad to see Chris Harris Jr. sign a new one-year deal last week.
“I’ve already expressed what Chris means to me and what kind of guy he is for us,” Miller said Saturday at his third annual Pass Rush Summit. “I’ve been playing with the guy for nine years, and you want to see the guy get his due. You want to see guys get done right by. And they definitely did right by Chris in paying him.”
Harris joined the Broncos for all three of the team’s voluntary practices during the final week of organized team activities.
“Everything worked out the way it’s supposed to,” Miller said. “Nobody got traded, nobody held out. For the most part, everybody’s been able to shake hands, hug and get back to doing what we do.”
Miller and Harris, who have recorded a combined 11 Pro Bowl appearances, are just two players that new Head Coach Vic Fangio can utilize in his defensive scheme.
“We’ve got a lot of great guys,” Miller said. “Chris is a cornerstone for this defense, especially in Coach Fangio’s new defense. I’m happy and excited to have him here.”
The Broncos will hold their mandatory minicamp next week to conclude the offseason program.
