Broncos have tendered exclusive rights free agent DL Shelby Harris for $705K. Other ERFAs have been told they will be tendered early next week. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 9, 2018
The deadline to submit tenders is 4:00 P.M. EST on March 14th when the new league year begins.
The remaining exclusive-rights free agents for the Broncos are inside linebackers Zaire Anderson and Jerrol Garcia-Williams, outside linebacker Joseph Jones, long snapper Casey Kreiter, defensive end Kyle Peko, wide receiver Jordan Taylor, and offensive tackle Elijah Wilkinson.
An exclusive-rights free agent, or ERFA, is a player with only one or two accrued seasons. Unlike restricted free agents, ERFA’s are not able to negotiate with other teams. Their rights are exclusive to the team that applies the tender. In short, the Broncos hold all of the cards.
