Chris Harris sees 'big rebuild' coming for Broncos

Once the Broncos handed Vance Joseph his walking papers Monday morning, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. started to wonder who’d be following his former coach out the door, Sean Keeler of the Denver Post reports.

“I think everybody who won the Super Bowl (in 2016) is pretty much (on) a non-guaranteed contract now,” Harris said as he cleaned out his locker.  “So I expect everybody to be gone, really. I expect to probably have two or three vets on the team and I think we’ll keep moving like that. That’s how I see it. I see it as a big rebuild coming on. I see a big tidal wave coming.”

The Broncos close the door on 2018 with at least 28 expiring contracts, a collective that includes offensive linemen Matt Paradis, Jared Veldheer, Billy Turner and Max Garcia; defensive linemen Shelby Harris, Domata Peko and Zach Kerr; cornerbacks Bradley Roby, Tramaine Brock and Jamar Taylor; and outside linebackers Shaquil Barrett and Shane Ray. 

“I think, after the Super Bowl, we just kind of got stagnant. We haven’t evolved,” Harris said. “So we’ve got to figure out how we can evolve on offense, defense, special teams, everything … In terms of the NFL, we’re behind right now.

“We’ve got to just get with the times … we kind of just stayed doing the same thing we’ve been doing since 2015. It’s 2019 now — I mean (Tuesday). So we’ve got evolve, man. We can’t do the same things. I have to evolve my game. I can’t think I’m still going to play the same coverage (how) I played in 2015 or 2013. I have to evolve my game. And we have to evolve, too.”
