S - DEN
Week 12 Outlook
Denver Broncos star safety Justin Simmons missed Wednesday's practice for non injury related reasons.
Simmons is playing on the franchise tag and has been one of the lone bright spots in the secondary for the Broncos. His completion percentage against is not great, but he is well on his way to setting a new career-high in interceptions. Simmons has been a rock-solid DB2 option for IDP managers and should be one once again if he is active against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10.
Simmons recorded six tackles on Monday night.
The four-year veteran had a respectable night against the Titans on Monday night. Simmons produced four solo tackles and two assisted tackles. Look for continued production when the Broncos visit the Steelers in Week 2.
Broncos S Justin Simmons has officially signed his one-year, $11.44M franchise tag, but a long-term deal before the deadline “doesn’t look good.”
According to sources, talks have stalled since proposals were exchanged in April. Simmons figures to be a big part of the Broncos future, and the team loves him, but it seems a multi-year extension will be revisited next offseason. Going into his fifth-season in Denver, Simmons has quietly become one of the league’s most underrated players at the free safety position. He should be in for a large payday after playing this season on the franchise tag.
Broncos S Justin Simmons has officially accepted his franchise tender for the 2020 season and he is expected to sign it shortly.
Simmons has been an effective player on defense for the Broncos over the past four seasons. The former third-round pick in 2016 has played in 58 games, recording 288 tackles and 11 interceptions. Simmons has been holding out for a long-term extension, but the deadline to come to an agreement is July 15. If that doesn’t happen, Simmons will officially play the upcoming season on his franchise tender.
The Broncos are in “active negotiations” on a long-term deal with S Justin Simmons. He was franchise tagged in March, and is set to make $12.7 million for the upcoming 2020 season.
Simmons was franchise tagged by the Broncos earlier this off-season as the two parties are in negotiations towards a kong-term deal. He racked up 93 tackles, four interceptions and 15 passes defensed across 16 games for the Broncos in 2019. Simmons Is one of the top safeties in the NFL and a top-5 DB in IDP league formats.
