Earlier in his four-year career, Denver’s Ryan Harris looked like a franchise cornerstone and one of the best right tackles in football.
After a slew of injuries and inconsistent play, the Broncos were ready to dump him last year. Josina Anderson of FootballProsLive.com reports that the team tried to trade Harris last season. The Bears reportedly showed the most interest, with the Raiders, Bills, Redskins, and Texans also in the mix.
Harris wound up starting the last eight games of the year, but an injured ankle before the trading deadline prevented a trade. By all indications, the Broncos are ready to move on from Harris, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent.
He’s only 25 years old and has 34 starts over the last three years, so he’ll make an high upside pickup for some team.
