2020 NFL Free Agency: Buffalo Bills interested in Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris, per report

New, comments

A very interesting name is the first of the tampering period.

The NFL legal tampering window is officially open and with it comes rumors seemingly out of left field. One of the latest reports comes from ESPN’s Josina Anderson. Anderson says that the Bills are one of a handful of teams interested in Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris. The Dallas Cowboys, New York Jets, and Las Vegas Raiders are among the teams showing interest.

Joe Buscaglia speculated that Harris would play in the slot and push Taron Johnson down the depth chart. Buffalo added a nickel coach to the coaching staff this offseason, and plays a large portion of their snaps from this formation (about 50% in 2019) so Harris would play a bunch of snaps. Johnson has been oft-injured since being drafted by Buffalo, and this adds depth to the position by placing the veteran ahead of him.

Harris has played in 139 games for the Broncos, starting 121 of them. During his nine-year career, he has tallied 20 interceptions, 86 passes defended, and six forced fumbles.
