where he had 33 sacks. Antworten

ENGLEWOOD , Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos and Chris Harris Jr. have ended their contract stalemate with the team bumping the cornerback’s pay in 2019 from about $8 million to $12 million, which is $1 million more than the team’s new cornerback, free agent Kareem Jackson is making.“Done deal!” the team tweeted late Tuesday afternoon.Harris skipped the first two months of the team’s offseason workouts while angling for a pay raise and working out with his personal trainer in Dallas.In a statement, general manager John Elway said, “We have a lot of respect for Chris as a player and for everything he’s meant to our organization. This contract adjustment recognizes his value to our team and the high expectations we have for Chris as a Bronco this season and hopefully for years to come.”However, Harris is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season.Harris and his agent met with Elway at the NFL scouting combine and came away feeling good about getting a new deal. Those feelings soured when Elway signed two cornerbacks in free agency, Bryce Callahan (three years, $21 million) and Jackson (three years, $33 million).Harris then accused Elway of making it personal by taking a dig at him during his pre-draft news conference when he went out of his way to say that while he would look at Harris’ contract after the draft, he wouldn’t necessarily adjust his deal.Harris, who turns 30 in June, is entering the final season of the five-year, $42.5 million contract he signed in 2015 just before the market for elite cornerbacks took off.The last remaining member of the “No Fly Zone” secondary that was the backbone of Denver’s Super Bowl 50 triumph Devin Bush Jersey , Harris is the only defensive back in the NFL with multiple interceptions in each of the past seven seasons.The Broncos were 6-6 last season and in the playoff race when Harris sustained a hairline fracture in his right leg and missed the final four games, all losses. He returned to play in the Pro Bowl, where he recorded an interception.Harris told The Associated Press recently that he only needs a day to learn new coach Vic Fangio’s defense and that he’s been training tirelessly with his personal trainer in Dallas in preparation for the upcoming season.“I’m ready to roll. I feel great,” Harris said. “I got my body people with me. I stretch every day. My hips are fluid. I’m making sure I’m ready. I’m not going to stop until I get that gold jacket. I’ve got a lot of years left in me. I’m a DB. I play everywhere. I’m getting ready to face Antonio Brown Week 1.”The Broncos open against the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 9.Even with the Broncos changing quarterbacks and coaches again this offseason, the dominant story line in Denver has been Harris’ holding out for a contract adjustment.Von Miller chimed in recently, saying, “When you first get here they tell you … if you do all of the right things in the community and you do all of the right things on the football field, they’ll take care of you. Chris has definitely done everything and then some.”Champ Bailey, who will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August, told The AP that while he saw both sides, he felt Harris deserved a hefty pay raise.“I think he’s been in his prime for a few years now. But you have to be realistic. I always try to be objective. I know this guy should get paid. But then I think about Elway’s stance. He’s a businessman. He’s going to do what is best for the Broncos,” Bailey said.“And the way I see it is you’d better get him signed but you’d also better protect yourself for the long run. He is on the wrong side of 30, let’s be real. But , does he deserve to be the highest-paid corner at least on that team? Hell, yeah!” EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After making three picks on the opening day of the NFL draft, New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was quick to say how great it is when need and value match.It ended up being the story of all three days of the draft for the Giants, who are in a serious rebuilding mode after winning eight games over the past two seasons.Much had to be replaced with the trades of star receiver Odell Beckham Jr and top sacker Olivier Vernon to Cleveland, the loss of Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins to Washington in free agency, and a roster that had holes and a lack of depth.Gettleman got top-quality players with three first-round picks, but he also put his job on the line taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick overall.The Giants aren’t going to shove Jones into the starting lineup. He is going to learn for a year or so behind two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, who is 38 years old and entering the final year of an $84 million contract.However, that’s a big sacrifice. The Giants need a quarterback for the future. Their fans also want them to win now, especially after missing the playoffs six of the past seven seasons and finishing 5-11 last season.The problem is there is no guarantee Jones is going to be a sure thing. He was rated by some as the fourth-best quarterback prospect in the draft. Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur believe he can be a franchise player.“I have to think short term and I have to think long term,” Gettleman said of using a No. 6 for a player who probably won’t see much action in 2019.“That’s the box I am in. Coaches have to win now and I ask myself a million times, ‘Have I given Pat and the guys enough players to win?’ It’s tough.”Gettleman said he knew two teams would have taken Jones had he not done so at No. 6 Justin Layne Jersey , adding it was not easy to pass on Kentucky edge player Josh Allen, who was taken at No. 7 by Jacksonville.“But I think that much of Daniel Jones and his future as an NFL quarterback,” he added.Time will tell, but there is a lot riding on it for the 68-year-old Gettleman, who just finished his second draft since replacing Jerry Reese.Here’s the quick takeaway from the draft:WHO THEY GOTIn addition to Jones, the Giants drafted seven players on defense, a speedy wide receiver and an offensive tackle.The defense needed the most help after finishing 24th in the league and registering 30 sacks, tied for second lowest in the league in 2018.The D line and the secondary got the most help.Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence of Clemson was the 17th pick overall. He is a run stuffer at 344 pounds who can get a push in the middle to help the rush.Cornerback Deandre Baker of Georgia was the third of New York’s three first-round picks, No. 30 overall. The Giants feel he was the top cover cornerback in the draft.Defensive end Oshane Ximines was taken in the third round. He is the first player drafted out of Old Dominion, where he had 33 sacks.Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love was taken in the fourth round. He is fast and can play both the slot and the outside in coverage.Wisconsin inside linebacker Ryan Connelly was the first of two fifth-round picks. He is a fast sideline-to-sideline player who had 89 tackles before his season was ended by hernia surgery. Auburn wide receiver Darius Slayton is a sprinter who averaged 20.3 yards per catch in his career.New York grabbed another speedster in the sixth round, taking Washburn University cornerback and return man Corey Ballentine.The Giants wrapped up the draft by picking Kentucky tackle George Asafo-adjei and Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton in the seventh round.Asafo-adjei was the feel-good story. He was born in New York City and raised by a single mother who worked three jobs. He didn’t get a chance to meet his sister until he was 14 years old because she was living in Ghana and the family could not get her to the United States.SURPRISE MOVEPicking Jones at No. 6. It’s going to be debated for some time.HOW THEY DIDThe Giants met every major need, except drafting a young safety.WHAT’S NEXT?Right tackle is the big issue. Asafo-adjei will be given a chance to challenge incumbent Chad Wheeler. There is a chance veteran free agent right tackle Mike Remmers will be signed. He visited during free agency and is currently rehabbing an injury.
