DE - CLE
Week 3 Outlook
Free agent DT Shelby Harris has agreed to a deal with the Cleveland Browns.
Harris started 15 games last season with the Seahawks before he was released earlier in the offseason. He visited the Browns on July 31 and now lands a deal with them. He figures to add some veteran experience to the Browns defensive line.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Seattle Seahawks are expected to release DL Shelby Harris, saving nearly $9 million in cap space.
Harris played just one season with Seattle, being shipped as a part of the Russell Wilson trade. Harris accrued 44 tackles and 2.0 sacks in 2022. The Seahawks will take on roughly $3 million in dead cap, and the 31-year-old DT who’s started 58 games the last four seasons could find a new home.
The Seahawks restructured Shelby Harris' contract to create $3,260,588 in cap room.
Harris was part of the trade that sent Russell Wilson to the Broncos. It is not clear what this move was done for, potentially to open up some cap space for the extension Seattle will give D.K. Metcalf.
Defensive lineman Shelby Harris is included in the package the Broncos are sending to the Seahawks for Russell Wilson.
Harris leaves Denver having racked up 16 sacks in his four years as a starter there. Many have touted his character and leadership skills as well.
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.
