Fantasy Impact:

This news comes as no surprise and could merely serve as a placeholder in extension talks. As Allbright later added, "the Broncos' intent is to have Simmons playing on a long term deal." The 27-year-old Boston College product has been a force in the defensive backfield for several years, finally earning his first career Pro Bowl selection this past season. In 2020, he started 16 games, posting nine passes defended and a career-high five interceptions. He also accrued 96 tackles, which was just one shy of tying his career-best.
