DE - DEN
Week 2 Outlook
Per Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos and lineman Shelby Harris have agreed to a three-year/$27M contract.
Harris was a top free agent heading into 2020 but signed a one-year deal in the midst of the uncertainty due to how the NFL season would progress with COVID-19. The risk he took on himself paid off and he'll secure a great contract that will keep him with Denver through 2023.
Mike Klis on Twitter is reporting that the Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with defensive tackle Shelby Harris worth $3.25M, including $2.5M in guaranteed salary.
The Broncos bring back Harris on salary friendly deal that will fortify their front line defense. Harris played all 16 games for the Broncos last year. He provided 49 total tackles and six sacks last season. Harris can be placed on watch list for now in deep dynasty IDP leagues.
DT Shelby Harris is re-signing a one-year, up to $3.25M deal with the Denver Broncos, with $2.5M guaranteed.
Harris will be back with the Broncos for a fourth season. He set a career-high in sacks last season with six, to go along with 49 tackles. After only starting six games in his first two years in Denver, Harris started all 16 games in 2019. He’ll look to build on his impressive 2019 campaign and provide the Broncos with a solid pass rush in 2020.
Shelby Harris posted five solo tackles, two TFLs, three sacks, three QB hits, and one forced fumble, but the Broncos blew a lead and lost 27-23 to the Vikings.
Harris easily had what was his best game his career, but it was wasted after the Broncos were unable to protect a 20-0 lead. While it may be tempting to capitalize on what could be a second-half breakout, he only had a single sack through the first nine games. He'll try to sustain some momentum when the Broncos play the Bills next week.
