Despite giving the Broncos a pay-me-or-trade-me ultimatum, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. hasn't given up on remaining with the team he has played for his entire career.

Hours later, Harris requested the Broncos either sign him to a new contract, with a significant pay raise, or trade him. The four-time Pro Bowler is entering a contract year and is set to earn a base salary of $7.8 million in 2019.

He has not attended the team's voluntary offseason program, including the team's first minicamp last week.

Broncos G.M. John Elway has said he has no intention of addressing the subject with Harris prior to the conclusion of the draft.

"I mean, it's just so special and it's hard to describe right now in words", said Bush, "but I love my family and I love that guy especially and I just can't wait to be a Steeler".

Elway added that he hasn't thought about trading Harris. In 2003 the Steelers traded up from No. 27 to No. 16 overall by giving the Kansas City Chiefs their first round pick, the 92nd selection and the 200th to eventually select Troy Polamalu.
