Former Bronco Shelby Harris to be cut by Seahawks, report says

The Broncos traded Shelby Harris, Noah Fant and Drew Lock to Seattle for Russell Wilson in 2022.

SEATTLE — One of the players the Denver Broncos traded away for quarterback Russell Wilson is set to become a free agent.

The Seattle Seahawks plan to release defensive lineman Shelby Harris, NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo reported Monday.

The Seahawks acquired Harris from Denver as part of the trade of Wilson last offseason. Harris, 31, played in 15 games with Seattle last season.

Garafolo added that Seattle looked to trade Harris but found no team willing to complete the trade. Harris was set to make $9 million in the final year of his contract in 2023.

The Seahawks traded Wilson to the Broncos on March 8, 2022, kicking off a new era for both teams.

The Broncos received Wilson, a perennial Pro Bowl quarterback and one-time Super Bowl champion, and a fourth-round draft pick.

To get their new starting quarterback, the Broncos sent quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, Harris, two first round picks, two second round picks and a fifth round pick to Seattle.
