Broncos' Shelby Harris: Re-signs with Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris and the Broncos have agreed on a one-year deal, Zac Stevens of reports.

Harris started all 16 games for the Broncos last year and accumulated 49 tackles (28 solo), six sacks and a forced fumble in the process. He also logged nine passes defensed, which was a league-high among defensive lineman. The Illinois State product enjoyed a strong finish to the season and will look to pick up where he left off in 2020.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Enjoys strong 2019 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris finished 2019 with 49 total tackles, six sacks, a forced fumble and nine passes defensed.

The nine passes defensed were the most in the league among defensive linemen as Harris continued to show off his ability to bat down passes at the line in his first season as a full-time starter. Harris really took off in Week 5, after the Broncos moved him from nose tackle to defensive end. The Illinois State product should be an offseason priority for both the Broncos and teams desperate for an interior rush. He's capable of getting sacks in bunches, as evidenced by his three-sack game against Minnesota in Week 11 and two-sack game against Kansas City in Week 15. If Denver is unable to re-sign him in free agency, look for the Broncos to rely on Dre'Mont Jones, DeMarcus Walker and, perhaps, a draft pick to try to fill the void.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Drops Mahomes twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded three tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 23-3 loss to the Chiefs.

Harris has set career highs across the board, as he now has 45 tackles, six sacks and seven pass breakups through 14 games. The 26-year-old isn't consistent in the sack column, however, as his six sacks came from just three games. Harris will look to chase down rookie David Blough in Week 16's matchup against the Lions.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Gearing up against Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Harris will avoid missing his first game since the 2016 season, but he could be on a "pitch count." The 2014 seventh-rounder logged a season-low 18 defensive snaps in Week 12 after sustaining an ankle injury in warmups, and Adam Gotsis saw a steep increase in his usage.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Harris sustained the injury during pregame warmups Week 12 and didn't practice Wednesday. He worked as a limited participant the last two days, however, putting him in good position to play Sunday.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) was on the field Wednesday but did not participate in practice, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Harris injured himself in warmups last week and was seen wearing a walking boot following the game. The fact he was present for practice is encouraging but considering he did not participate in any drills, Harris' status for Week 13 remains up in the air.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Injured in warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) was seen with a walking boot on his left foot following Sunday's game against the Bills, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Harris didn't get to suit up in the game as he suffered the injury during pregame warmups. The fact that he's sporting a walking boot is evidence that he could be dealing with a significant injury. Expect the team to monitor Harris' status leading into Week 13's game against the Chargers.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Pass-rushing explosion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded five solo tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Vikings.

Over Harris' previous 49 games, he notched nine total sacks, so Sunday's surge was certainly unexpected. The sixth-year pro's now tied for third on the team with four total sacks, and he's on pace for 58 tackles this year, which would be a career high.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ribs) logged a full practice Tuesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Harris was limited at Monday's practice but looks to be headed in the right direction for Thursday's matchup with the Chiefs. He is coming off a season-low 38 defensive snaps, which indicates his injury played a factor in his playing time. Mike Purcell would be in line for a bigger role should he suffer any setbacks ahead of kickoff.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Bothered by rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ribs) was a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Harris played a season-low 38 defensive snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Titans, so perhaps he suffered the injury during the game. The severity of his injury isn't clear, but limited participation gives him a shot to play Thursday against the Chiefs.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Wrecks 49ers' front
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded two tackles and two passes defended in limited action during Monday's 24-15 preseason loss to San Francisco.

Harris confounded the 49ers' starting offense, breaking up two of Jimmy Garoppolo's six pass attempts and sniffing out his lone completion for no gain. Harris performed well in a rotational role last season but is the man in the middle to start 2019. Don't be surprised if he comes away with a few sacks; Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman combining for 10.5 in the interior of Vic Fangio's defense last season, and -- as he showed against Pittsburgh -- an interception or two as a starter this season.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Pens RFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris signed his restricted free agent tender with the Broncos on Tuesday.

Harris received a second-round tender from the Broncos in early March and will earn $3.095 million for 2019. The 27-year-old had 39 tackles (23 solo), 1.5 sacks and one interception in 16 games for Denver last season.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Receives tender from Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris has been told by the Broncos they will use a restricted free-agent tender on him, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The move will give Harris a salary of $3.095 million for the 2019 season, unless he finds a new contract elsewhere. He is free to sign with any team, but Denver will hold the right to sign him to the same deal for the next five days or they will receive a second-round pick. The 2014 draft pick recorded 23 tackles and 1.5 sacks while playing 24.4 defensive snaps per game in 2018.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) did not appear on Saturday's injury report, Zac Stevens of reports.

After shedding his name from the injury report, it's reasonable to expect Harris' availability for Monday's contest. With Harris likely to be back in the mix up front, the Broncos will have all their defensive linemen at full health for the divisional showdown.

Broncos' Shelby Harris: Earns ERFA contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have tendered a one-year contract to Harris, an exclusive rights free agent, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Harris played just eight games over his three seasons, notching 14 tackles and one sack. However, in the 2017 campaign, Harris suited up for 16 contests, racking up 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks and three pass breakups. He could battle his way to a heightened role in 2018 as well with DE Jared Crick set to become an unrestricted free agent March 14.

McGloin, Butler, Bergstrom, McCants and Harris are all healthy scratches.
