The Broncos acquired A.J. Bouye from the Jacksonville Jaguars via trade this week, and that could mean Chris Harris Jr.'s time in Denver is running out. With a potential replacement already in town, Denver could elect to let Harris walk in free agency this offseason.
With that in mind, here are four potential landing spots for the four-time Pro Bowl corner.
1. Las Vegas Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders have quite a few issues to address in their new home. The secondary might be the team's biggest problem, though. They checked in as the league's third-worst unit in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA metrics. Clearly, an upgrade in the secondary is needed, and Harris would provide just that. Armed with more than $51 million in cap space, the Raiders have plenty of room to make a splash on a player like Harris.
2. Detroit Lions
Like Vegas, the Detroit Lions were one of the league's worst pass defenses in 2019, checking in as the fourth-worst unit against the pass by DVOA. They could get even worse in 2020 though, as there are plenty of rumors suggesting they could move their best corner, Darius Slay. Regardless of Slay's status with the team, bringing in Harris would be a big help. If Slay stays, he and Harris would be a nice pair. Slay specializes against No. 1 corners, while Harris excels in the slot. If Slay leaves, Harris would still be a solid option to bring in, and he should come at a much cheaper price tag.
3. Houston Texans
While it wasn't as glaring as the other two teams on this list, pass defense was still an issue for the Houston Texans. They were the seventh-worst pass defense by DVOA, and were constantly losing defensive backs to injury. Harris would provide a veteran presence to a team that sorely needs it, and he'd, at the very least, give this team some more depth. Armed with the seventh-most space in the NFL, Houston should be able to fit Harris in under the cap.
