At the conclusion of the 2019 season, few expected defensive lineman Shelby Harris to return to the Denver Broncos. After a career year in which he started 16 games, logging 49 tackles (28 solo), six sacks, eight tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and nine deflected passes, he expected a prized contract on the free-agent market.
After not receiving the contract that he felt he deserved, Harris left agent Drew Rosenhaus to find the best fit for him and his family. To everyone’s surprise, it turned out to be the Broncos.
Harris and the Broncos agreed on a one-year, $3.25 million deal with $2.5 million guaranteed, reuniting him with teammates in Denver. He returned to the locker room as a sixth-year veteran, and fan-favorite.
“Honestly, for me, it’s the same as every other year,” Harris said on Thursday following Day 6 of training camp. “Every year, I have to continue to prove myself and prove that I’m a legit, quality starter in this league and that I deserve the respect in this league. I have no problem with that. I have no problem going in and working my tail off and really letting my play do the talking.”
