The Denver Broncos are expected to let Chris Harris Jr. walk in free agency, but it appears they have found his replacement. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to trade former Pro Bowler A.J. Bouye to Denver for a 2020 fourth-round pick.

Schefter notes that the trade can't officially go through until the new league begins on March 18.

While the Broncos acquire a veteran corner to improve their secondary in this deal, Jacksonville is busy compiling draft picks for the future. With the trade for Bouye, the Jaguars now have 10 draft picks in this year's draft. Among those draft picks, six of them will come in the first four rounds:

On the other hand, the Broncos believe they're getting a long-term option at corner in Bouye. Heading into next season, Bouye still has two years remaining on his contract. The 28-year-old cornerback is owed $26.9 million over the next two seasons combined.

For quite some time, it has been assumed that Harris would be leaving the Broncos in free agency. Now, Denver has someone who can make the transition without Harris a bit smoother.

Over the past three seasons, Bouye started in 43 games for the Jaguars. In those three seasons, the Central Flordia product amassed 175 tackles, 34 deflections, and eight interceptions. His best season came in 2017, when he tallied a career-high 18 deflections and six interceptions.

Even though the Broncos added Bouye, they still have plenty of cap space and draft picks to acquire more talent for next season. At the least, John Elway is showing he's prepared to spend some money and draft capital to get back to being a playoff team.
