3. Shelby Harris is a beast

The Denver Broncos have not gotten the kind of production on the interior from Jurrell Casey I think everyone had hoped for, at least not in terms of interior pass rush.

On the other hand, Shelby Harris has been up to his old tricks and then some.

Harris has made batting down passes at the line of scrimmage an art form, and at this point it is surprising if he goes a week without at least one.

Harris finished a magnificent game against the Buccaneers with four quarterback hits, a batted pass, and two sacks.

He has been very consistent to open the 2020 season and is proving to be one of the best values in 2020 free agency. Remember when the Broncos signed him for just one year, $3 million?

The rest of the NFL looks insane for not giving Harris a multi-year deal worth at least triple that amount. The Broncos aren’t going to complain about having him, especially at that price.
