Broncos Re-Signing DL Shelby Harris To One-Year Deal Worth Up To $3.25M


Nicki Jhabvala of the Athletic reports that the Broncos are re-signing DL Shelby Harris to a one-year contract that includes $2.5 million in guarantees and carries a max value of $3.25 million.

This comes as a bit of a surprise, given that the expectation has been that Harris would be moving on in free agency. However, it’s clear he did not find the kind of market many thought he would and opted to return to Denver. 

Harris, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Raiders back in 2014. He was on an off of their practice squad for two years before returning to the Raiders on a one-year, exclusive rights deal.

Unfortunately, the Raiders waived Harris after the 2016 draft and he had brief stints with the Jets and Cowboys before signing a futures deal with the Broncos for the 2017 season. Denver brought Harris back last year on one-year, $3.095 million restricted deal.

In 2019, Harris appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and recorded 49 tackles, six sacks, a forced fumble and nine passes defended.

We had Harris included in our Top 100 – 2020 Free Agents list.
