Harris expects to play slot cornerback for the Chargers in 2020, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The Broncos opted to move on from Harris this offseason, and the nine-year veteran found a new home with an AFC West rival. The Chargers boast a top-tier outside CB in Casey Hayward and two other capable options in Michael Davis and Desmond King (ankle), so having Harris focus on the slot makes sense on paper. For his career, Harris has averaged 3.7 tackles per game while picking off 20 passes in 139 contests.

How much longer does Harris, the last holdover from Denver's Super-Bowl secondary, have in Mile High? The cornerback -- who logged 49 tackles and three picks in 12 games last season -- has one season remaining on a team-friendly deal and is looking for a top-market contract just as he turns 30-years-old. The veteran has notched multiple interceptions for seven straight years and is known as one of the league's better tackling corners, while minimizing gains when opponents do manage to make the catch. If he stays, it'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to Vic Fangio's defense and other moves Denver made this offseason. Playing on the outside and in more zone coverage could help Harris play the ball more and generate more interceptions. At the same time, it'd be a departure from the kind of play -- generally in man coverage and in the slot -- that has put him in position to seek big money.
Despite years of accolades and league-leading performance metrics, Harris was often outshined by his more physically dominant, flamboyant partner, Aqib Talib. Harris has intercepted two passes in each of the last three seasons, but is not the pick-six threat Talib was -- scoring just once in the past five seasons. It'll be interesting to see if his opportunities decrease with Talib's absence as opposing offenses look elsewhere for yards. Would an opposing quarterback prefer to throw at Harris, a three-time All-Pro, or less proven options such as Bradley Roby and rookie Isaac Yiadom?
Ranked as Pro Football Focus' top corner of 2016, Harris is a better player than fantasy IDP. He tallied 63 tackles in 2016 to go along with 11 passes defended, two picks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The former undrafted free agent out of Kansas has been a very consistent performer, with at least 49 tackles and two or three picks in each season since 2012. He has two things working uniquely in his favor. One, more so than other top corners, Harris is able to switch back and forth between the outside and slot -- making it difficult for opponents to take him out of his comfort zone. Secondly, Harris' flashier teammate, Aqib Talib, ranked as Pro Football Focus' second-best corner of 2016. While opponents can generally avoid top corners by throwing to the other side of the field, opposing offenses have little choice, but to throw at Harris or Talib, often at their own peril.
Harris has picked off three passes in each of the last three seasons, and he continues to get plenty of balls thrown his way with Aqib Talib on the other side of the field. He has recorded between 50 and 60 tackles in each of the last four years, so he's a bit limited in most IDP formats, but he will at least be a starting corner for deeper leagues.
Harris is recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered during the playoffs last season, which forced him to miss the AFC Championship game and the Super Bowl. However, he is on track to begin practicing at the end of July, so he could very well be up to speed by the time Week 1 rolls around. That being said, he's unlikely to see significant snaps as a starting cornerback with the Broncos bringing on Aqib Talib via free agency and Bradley Roby via the draft.
