BRONCOS CB CHRIS HARRIS JR. SIGNS RESTRICTED FREE-AGENT TENDER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. on Tuesday signed his restricted free-agent tender, the team announced.

Harris Jr. (5-10, 199 pounds) is a fourth-year player who has started 31-of-47 regular-season games and 3-of-4 playoff contests for the Broncos since being signed by the club as a college free agent in 2011 from the University of Kansas.

His career totals include 191 tackles (165 solo), seven interceptions (160 yds.), 2.5 sacks (17.5 yds.), 29 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in the regular season to go along with 18 defensive stops (12 solo) an five passes defensed in postseason play. 

He opened a career-best 15 games for the Broncos in 2013 and posted 65 tackles (58 solo), three interceptions (1 yd.) and 14 passes defensed. Harris Jr. emerged as a regular starter for the Broncos in 2012, opening the final 12 games of the regular season and allowing the fifth-fewest receiving yards (400) and tying for the eighth-fewest completions allowed (35) in the NFL among players targeted at least 60 times.

The only rookie college free agent to make Denver’s roster out of training camp in 2011, Harris Jr. was named to the NFL All-Rookie Team by the PFW/PFWA and Football Outsiders after ranking first among league rookie defensive backs (fourth on the Broncos) with 65 tackles (56 solo) to go along with one interception (15 yds.), six passes defensed and six special-teams stops.

He appeared in 50 games (41 starts) for the Kansas Jayhawks and finished his collegiate career ranked third among defensive backs in school history with 290 tackles (197 solo) in addition to four sacks (21 yds.) and three interceptions (11 yds.).
