Roy Robertson-Harris, Defensive end
Undrafted out of UTEP in 2016, Robertson-Harris has spent his entire five-year career with the Chicago Bears. He fits the Broncos for several reasons, but mostly due to his familiarity with head coach Vic Fangio.
He had his best seasons under Fangio and could find that spark again within his scheme in Denver. Robertson-Harris is a solid run defender and while he probably wouldn’t have a starting role with the Broncos, he could add solid depth in certain spots.
The Broncos must re-sign Shelby Harris, but making a move like this signing could mean the team moves on from DeMarcus Walker. Though the former second-round pick showed flashes of transforming his career last season, Robertson-Harris could make more sense in the long term.
He is coming off a shoulder injury that required surgery and shut him down about halfway through the 2020 season. As a result of that, the Broncos could probably land Robertson-Harris on the cheap.
It really comes down to how the organization feels about Walker at this stage in his career. He has mostly been a flop to this point at least in terms of how high he was drafted, but it likely comes down to how Fangio feels about his future.
If Fangio feels that Walker won’t be much better than what we have already seen from him, his former guy, Robertson-Harris, could get a call.
