Respect sometimes goes beyond even the ugliest rivalry as Chris Harris shows

It’s no secret that there’s no love lost between two of the biggest rivals in the AFC West, yet, Chris Harris rose above that. While some on the outside might not see this act as a big deal, Raider Nation’s very aware of the ugly history between these two teams.

Raiders’ receiver Amari Cooper has put in some impressive work his first two seasons, impressive enough to warrant praise from a rival. The Raiders recently shared some bits of Harris’ words via their Twitter account.

“Getting off the press and route running, I think Cooper’s one of the best in the League already.  “

It should be noted that Cooper’s numbers against the Broncos last year (10 receptions, 95 yards, one touchdown) were pedestrian, in spite of that, it goes to show the respect the Broncos’ defender has and it’ll certainly be interesting to see if Cooper can step up is performance against one of the team’s fiercest rivals.
