Veteran cornerback Chris Harris Jr. became a staple of the Denver Broncos defense over the year, but the NFL defensive back's contract with the AFC West franchise has now expired.

While Chris Harris seemingly prefers to remain in Denver going forward, the longtime Broncos defender will look at all of his free agent options this offseason as well.

“I’d love to,” Chris Harris recently told reporters about remaining in Denver, via NBC Sports Pro Football Talk. “We’re getting the right pieces back — definitely need some more pieces around me to just do what I do. That’s one thing I’m looking at in the offseason. My family loves it here. Of course, my kids growing up here. I grew up here. It’s definitely my first home for sure.”

Even so, Chris Harris also understands that his decision will ultimately come down to mutual interest from both sides as reciprocation will obviously play a large role in his free agent process.

“[W]hen you know the team really loves you and they want you there [you play better],” Harris Jr. added, via NBC Sports Pro Football Talk. “Of course my next situation will have that and I will know the team loves me and I’ll be all in in trying to figure out what we can do.”

The 30-year-old Chris Harris has spent his entire NFL playing career as a member of the Broncos while most notably winning two AFC Championships and a Super Bowl title during his lengthy stint in Denver, which originally began all the way back in 2011.
