The team announced that they have agreed to terms with cornerback Chris Harris on a five-year contract extension. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport is reporting that the deal is worth $42.5 million, per a source informed of the contract.
Harris will collect a $10 million signing bonus and $24 million in guarantees, per Rapoport. Among all NFL cornerbacks, his contract ranks 12th in annual average.
In other words, he is more than deserving of a contract that acknowledges his status as the league's most effective "No. 2" cornerback.
