Broncos sign rookie Harris

DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos third-round pick Ryan Harris was expected to sign a four-year deal with the team Thursday, his agent said.

Agent Paul Lawrence confirmed the expected signing in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

The Broncos declined to comment because no deal has been submitted to the league.

Harris, an offensive tackle, was the 70th overall pick in April.

A four-year starter at Notre Dame, the 6-foot-5, 292-pound Harris started his last 37 games at left tackle after switching over from right tackle, a position he played as a freshman.

Marcus Thomas, the Broncos' fourth-round pick, agreed to terms July 11.

If Harris signs, Denver would have only two unsigned members of its 2007 rookie draft class -- Texas defensive end Tim Crowder and Florida defensive lineman Jarvis Moss.

Players are scheduled to report to training camp on July 28.
