Could Chris Harris Jr. Find a Home in Philadelphia?

Updated: May 8, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles have a stock pile of cornerbacks for the 2019 season. On top of Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Cre'Von LeBlanc, the team is also getting a fully healthy trio of Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones and Ronald Darby back.

With all of that talent at the position, the Eagles couldn't be in the market for another cornerback, could they? Yesterday news came out that Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is demanding a new contract before the 2019 season, and if the Broncos don't give him the contract he desires, he wants to get traded.

The Eagles could potentially be a destination for Harris Jr., as the team previously showed interest in him at the 2018 trade deadline. However, the issue comes in that form of his current deal, as he will have an $8.7 Million cap hit in 2019. The Eagles do currently have the cap room to fit him if they truly want him, but the team seems more likely to want to save that money for an eventual Carson Wentz extension. However, anything is possible under Howie Roseman.

A trade doesn't seem likely to possibly happen over draft weekend, so we can pay closer attention to this situation later in the summer.
