Chargers trade targets: AFC, continued

Chris Harris, Corner

The Broncos stumbled to open the season at 0-3, but looked to finally nab their first win of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Instad, Minshew-mania continued for one more week, and the Chargers’ AFC West rivals are now 0-4 and traveling to Los Angeles next week.

Chris Harris is one of the few remaining pieces of the Broncos’ once-elite defense, a consistent veteran who has posted elite grades in three different years and never below an overall grade of 75 in any full year.

The Broncos are a bottom-five team with some incredible talent sprinkled throughout their roster, and may need to regroup and start planning for next season.

Harris, fortunately, would not be stuck with the Chargers for long, and will become a free agent in 2020. The Chargers are now much better off with the return of Michael Davis, but there’s no denying they could use all the help they can get at corner, particularly with one who is also good in run support.

Who better to help the Chargers win in the AFC than a guy who has played the Chiefs and Patriots at a high level for years? Harris has missed just five games in eight seasons, and would truly help Los Angeles make a push deep into the playoffs.
