Denver broncos linebacker shaquil barrett discusses being a defensive starter
Barrett started playing college football at the University of 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.
After going undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, Barrett signed with the Denver Broncos. 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. 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.
Barrett married his wife, Jordanna, when he was still a college sophomore on February 2, 2012. They have three children together, one daughter, Aaliyah, and two sons, Shaquil Jr. and Braylon.
