The final member of the Denver Broncos 'No Fly Zone' is heading to Los Angeles as Chris Harris Jr. will join the Chargers, staying in the division.
It is official. The 'No Fly Zone' of the Denver Broncos is now no more. Chris Harris Jr. will remain in the AFC West. He just will no longer dress up in the orange and blue. In fact, he will trade in his navy blue for powder blue and remove the red from the orange to make yellow.
As the new league year begins, ESPN's Josina Anderson has reported that the remaining member of the Broncos "No Fly Zone" will be joining the Chargers. At the time of this writing, the terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
The long tendered cornerback had a rough year in 2019. There were consistent times where he was beaten in coverage. His final year with the Broncos saw him record only one interception. As a fan of the guy, I am glad I got to see his final interception in person.
It was clear for a long time that the Broncos and Harris were not going to be united for at least one more season. Denver trading for A.J. Bouye was the beginning of the end. The longtime corner even mentioned a few days ago that he believed the door between he and the Broncos was shut.
There is no doubt how much Harris did for the Broncos. Having joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2011, he became one of the biggest diamond in the rough players in the team's history, in my opinion.
He leaves the Broncos with 20 interceptions as a Bronco, four of them returned for touchdowns.
It is sad to see another member of the Super Bowl 50 defense leave Denver. But I wish Harris all the best. And we look forward to seeing him this year times two.
