Denver Broncos Are Cutting Veteran Player Following Tough Loss On Sunday

The Denver Broncos have now lost eight of their last nine games after falling to the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday.  

Despite allowing just 10 points to the Ravens in their Week 13 loss, Denver has reportedly cut a veteran member of their secondary this afternoon. 

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos have released safety Anthony Harris. 

"Broncos have released veteran safety Anthony Harris, per source," Schefter tweeted Tuesday. 

Harris joined the Broncos' practice squad prior to the start of the 2022 season. He appeared in just three games for Denver before his release on Tuesday and was limited to special teams action this year. 

Before arriving in Denver this season, Harris spent the first six years of his NFL career as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. His most productive season came back in 2019 when he led the NFL with six interceptions. 

Since that interception-leading 2019 campaign, however, Harris has struggled to make a quantifiable impact on defense. After failing to record an interception in 16 games with the Vikings in 2020, Harris wasn't retained by Minnesota and joined the Eagles on a one-year deal last season. 

Harris suited up for 14 games in 2021 with the Eagles, tallying just one interception. He was then cut from their practice squad before this season and joined the Broncos, where he remained until his release today. 

The Broncos, 3-9, will host the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.
