But although he didn't start his rookie year, he started every game (that he was available for) but one for the Broncos after that. He started 16 games his 2nd season, 8 games his third, and then 10 games his fourth season. So the guy was a starter, not a backup.
And for me, a journeyman is a player who bounces around from team to team. Harris has only been with 2 teams in 6 years (so far), so I don't see him as a journeyman.
I'm not saying that he's the answer at RT but I think that's more because of the injury situation with him combined with the fact that we've got some younger guys that might be more talented.
I don't think Kubiak is blowing sunshine at people when he talks about how good the guy is playing.
The Broncos cut him because of a back injury. Harris became available after Philly cut him last preseason. Lucky is spot on, when he said Harris doesn't anchor well enough to be an above avg RT.
Plus it's likely that Harris' back wont hold up as a 16 game starter. But right now he's the best RT they've got. This worries me more than a little.
