While the future of ORT Ryan Harris remains up in the air, we hear the hiring of John Fox as Broncos' head coach should improve the chances of the free-agent-to-be returning in 2011. Fox has been known to employ zone-blocking schemes on his offensive lines, something Harris excelled at in his All-Pro season in ’08. Injuries have kept him from performing at that level the past two seasons, but at full health, Harris could be the type of player Fox would want to pair with OLT Ryan Clady to bookend the O-line. A daily team observer said it is very likely Harris would want to remain in Denver. Harris recently started a medical service company there, and has his own radio show in the Mile High city. A PFW insider described the Notre Dame product as a genuinely nice, well-spoken player who makes the right decisions on and off the field. With a number of off-the-field incidents involving players in recent months, Harris could be a player the Broncos want to bring back.
