REPORT: Eagles "Pushing" For Chris Harris Jr.

So far in free agency, the Eagles have addressed a few parts of their secondary, bringing back Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod. The team still needs to upgrade at cornerback badly, and it appears they have every intention of doing so.

According to Denver sports anchor Troy Renck, the Eagles are pushing to land Chris Harris Jr..

Harris has been in Denver since 2011, where he has constantly performed as one of the better cornerbacks in the league. In 139 career games, Harris has collected 518 tackles (23 for loss), 20 interceptions (four pick-sixes), 86 passes defended, 4.5 sacks, 10 QB hits, six forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries.

If the Birds are able to land Harris, there will still be some questions left to be answered by Howie Roseman. We are not sure if Jalen Mills will move to (and succeed) at safety to take over for Malcolm Jenkins. If the move is successful, the team would still need to add one more talented cornerback either through free agency or early in the draft. If Mills reverts back to cornerback, Harris and Mills would likely be the outside tandem, but the safety position would need to be addressed.

With a few different teams showing interest, we should find out Harris' decision very soon.
