After an offseason of being at odds with each other, the Denver Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. have reportedly agreed on a new deal.

It was reported on Tuesday that the two sides agreed to a deal. As a result, Harris will receive a raise of more than $3 million for the 2019 season.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was said that a deal was close. But while the more immediate news suggested that this would happen, that hasn’t always been the case.

As recently as late-April, it seemed likely that Harris would be traded. Obviously, the two sides worked through whatever differences lingered.

Harris is still set to be a free agent after the 2019 season.

He has been an integral part of Denver’s defense for a while. Harris has made four Pro Bowls, including last season. In 2018, he recorded three interceptions, one of them was returned for a touchdown.
