Shaquil Barrett (born November 17, 1992) is an American football outside linebacker for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He played college football at Colorado State University.

College career[edit]

Barrett started playing college football at Nebraska-Omaha in 2010. After the school eliminated its football program, he transferred to Colorado State. Since Barrett was transferring from a school that cut its program, he was eligible to play immediately instead of having to sit out a year.

Professional career[edit]

After going undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, Barrett signed with the Denver Broncos.[1] After being waived for final roster cuts before the start of the 2014 season, the Broncos signed him to their practice squad on August 31, 2014.[2] After the 2015 NFL preseason, he made the final 53-man roster. He finished the preseason with the most sacks of any player. In Week 6 of the 2015 season, Barrett had his first NFL start after DeMarcus Ware suffered a back injury. On February 7, 2016, Barrett played in Super Bowl 50, but left the game to be evaluated with a concussion. He returned to finish the game and the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24–10.[3]

In 2017, Barrett played in all 16 games with nine starts, recording 37 tackles and four sacks, good for third on the team.

On March 12, 2018, the Broncos placed a second-round restricted free agent tender on Barrett.[4] On April 23, 2018, he signed his exclusive rights tender.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Barrett married his wife, Jordanna, when he was still a college sophomore on February 2, 2012.[6] They have three children together, one daughter, Aaliyah, and two sons, Shaquil Jr. and Braylon.[6]
