Broncos cornerback Chris Harris told DenverBroncos.com that facing off against wide receiver Wes Welker in practice this spring has really helped him get better. “We definitely have great battles each day and we’ve made each other way better,” Harris said in May. “I feel like, at this time compared to last year, I’m light years better than I was. I know he’s gotten a lot better, too. I’m excited to be able to cheer him on and not have to play against him.” Welker had some nice things to say about Harris as well. “He’s very strong,” Welker said during OTAs. “He uses his help very, very well. He understands it. He knows when to take chances, when not to. He’s done a really good job this whole camp and I think we’ve definitely made each other a lot better out on the field.” Harris also enjoys facing off against quarterback Peyton Manning in practice. “You can never get tired of getting interceptions,” Harris said during OTAs. “I have to prove myself every day. I’m undrafted, I have a slim opportunity and I have to take advantage of my opportunity every day. “That’s just how I approach every day that I have to get better and if Peyton is going to throw that ball out there, I have to make a play on it.” Need NFL Tickets?
