Chris Harris Jr isn’t a happy camper right now. If he doesn’t get a new deal from the Broncos, he wants to be traded, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. And a newly signed Raider would like his former teammate to join him in Oakland.

Marshall and Harris have been Broncos teammates the past six years, and starters together the past five years.

Harris has been with the Broncos for a total of 8 years, working his way up from undrafted free agent in 2011 to Pro Bowler in 2014, to All Pro in 2016.

Near the end of his first Pro Bowl season in 2014, Harris received a 5-year, $42.5 million extension that lasts through the 2019 season. The 29-year-old would prefer not to go into the last year of his contract with no security after that.

He made his fourth Pro Bowl last season and that would sure be a great addition to a suddenly deep Raiders secondary. Though it seems rather unrealistic for a couple reasons. First of all, the Raiders signed Lamarcus Joyner to a free agent deal to be the team’s nickel corner. Second of all, the Broncos would probably not be onboard with sending Harris to a division rival.

But hey, you never know. And if you’re Brandon Marshall, and you want to reunite with a former Pro Bowl teammate it can’t hurt to try.
