Seahawks’ Shelby Harris mocks Russell Wilson trade after win

Seahawks defensive lineman Shelby Harris had one final message after Seattle’s 17-16 win against the Broncos on Monday Night Football.

“All I have to say is, let’s ride,” Harris told NFL Network after the game, referring to Wilson’s now-viral slogan after Seattle traded him to Denver in March.

Harris, 31, spent five seasons in Denver before he was traded, along with Noah Fant, Drew Lock and a number of draft picks for Wilson in March. Harris recorded 21.5 sacks on 203 tackles, 34 of which were for a loss, in 75 games for the Broncos.

“We come out here, everyone doubted us, everyone made this about Russ. We made about the Seattle Seahawks,” said Harris, who had three tackles, one for loss and one quarterback hit in the game.

“We came out here, played good ball for four quarters, come out with the ‘W.’ Nobody expected us to to win except for us. It’s always going to be us.”

When asked about Seattle’s defense causing two goal-line fumbles in the second half, Harris took the opportunity to let Denver know the caliber player they traded away to Seattle.

“That’s what happens when you trade one of your D-lineman to the other team. We sit here and make plays, all of us,” Harris said. “That’s what happens when you get two goal-line stops, right there, a win. Can’t draw it up any better than that, man.”

Wilson, who was mercilessly booed in his return to Seattle, was 29 of 42 for 340 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Denver’s downfall in Monday’s loss was in the red zone. Both Melvin Gordon III and Javonte Williams fumbled on plays snapped at the Seahawks 1-yard line.

The Broncos sealed the loss when first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett asked kicker Brandon McManus to boot a 64-yard field-goal attempt in the final minute — after letting the clock bizarrely run with all three of their timeouts.

Hackett got roasted on social media for not trusting Wilson to work on fourth-and-5 at the Seahawks’ 46-yard line with a minute left in the game.
