DENVER (KDVR) — On the first day of NFL legal tampering, the Denver Broncos are keeping one of their own.
Defensive Tackle Shelby Harris has agreed in principle to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Broncos $15 million of the contract is guaranteed.
“Shelby sets the tone on our defensive line,” says Broncos General Manager George Paton. “ As a disruptive pass rusher and physical defender, he’s hard to handle up front.”
Harris – who turns in 30 in August – played on a 1-year “prove me” contract worth $3 million in 2020. He missed time due to COVID-19 and a knee injury. Despite those challenges, he started in 11 games, registering 32 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He also deflected seven passes.
On Friday, Harris spoke to the media at 11 a.m., you can watch his news conference below.
