Shaq Barrett signs restricted free-agent tender

The Denver Broncos have one of their starting linebackers back under contract after Shaquil Barrett signed his restricted free agent tender on Monday, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Barrett recorded 30 tackles for the Broncos in 2017 to go with his 4.0 sacks. The linebacker out of Colorado State also forced two fumbles while starting nine games for Denver last year, which was a career high as linebacker Shane Ray dealt with injuries.

Barrett also appeared in all 16 games last year, making it the third-straight year that Barrett has appeared in all 16 games.
