Barrett signed his one-year free-agent tender with Denver on Monday, Nick Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Barrett has been a quality backup linebacker for the Broncos the past two years, recording 86 tackles, including 7.0 sacks, and six forced fumbles in 32 games. He'll likely be a top backup once again in 2017.
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived linebacker Shaquil Barrett.
The Broncos have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's game against the 49ers: running back Montee Ball (groin), wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, linebacker Shaquil Barrett, guard Ben Garland, tackle Michael Schofield and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein.

All the team's players listed as probable on the final injury report are active, including running back Juwan Thompson (knee), linebacker Corey Nelson (hamstring), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and defensive backs Omar Bolden (groin), David Bruton (ankle) and Chris Harris (knee).
