It’s a common thing amongst fans of the Denver Broncos lately to debate the personnel moves made while former head coach Josh McDaniels had the reigns.
Time is still the only truth teller and eventually history will prove whether the trades of Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Tony Scheffler and Alphonso Smith were best for the Broncos.
Our good friend Josina Anderson is reporting (via FootballProsLive) that in 2010 Denver also attempted to trade tackle Ryan Harris. According to Anderson the teams that were involved in trade talks were the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins [edit note: of course], Houston Texans [another of course], and the Chicago Bears [how many bridges did the team burn?].
Harris was made aware of the Broncos attempts to trade him following Denver’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. According to Anderson’s source the Bears were reportedly most interested [but probably were weary of sending more draft picks to Denver after the Cutler trade].
“I like being a Denver Bronco, but the choice is not up to me whether I stay. I’ve proven myself every year that I have been in the NFL, and I don’t have a problem doing that here or anywhere else.”
Sounds like the man wants to stay and with a return to featuring the running game Harris is a perfect fit; he’s also an injury concern, the likeliest reason that McDaniels wanted to deal him in favor of starting rookie Zane Beadles in his place.
Now what do you say Nation? Are the Broncos better with or without Harris?
