According to Troy Renck, Broncos restricted free agent OLB Shaq Barrett will sign his one-year tender for the 2018 season on Monday.

Denver placed a second-round tender on Barrett worth $2.194 for the 2018 season.

Barrett, 25, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State back in 2014. He was on and off of their practice squad during his rookie season but managed to make the 53-man roster in each of the following two seasons.

The Broncos re-signed Barrett to a one-year, $615,000 exclusive rights contract last year.

In 2017, Barrett appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and recorded 37 tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles, and a recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 33 edge defender out of 106 qualifying players.
