Simmons logged 97 tackles, four passes defended and three interceptions over 16 games in 2018. Simmons was Denver's ironman in 2018, playing all 1,077 defensive snaps during the Broncos' season after having missed three games due to injury during each of his first two NFL seasons. The 25-year-old came on strong in his third year, and set career highs in terms of tackles and interceptions. Simmons was forced to showcase his versatility due to both Darian Stewart and Chris Harris missing multiple games, and thrived in the slot as well as playing outside against tight ends, in addition to his usual free safety role. He's signed with the Broncos through 2019, and on track to return as a starter under new head coach Vic Fangio.
Simmons recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over the Bengals. Simmons' interception was his third of the season. He's been dominant the last few weeks, recording at least nine tackles in three straight games. He'll look to maintain the high level of play in Week 14 when the Broncos take on the 49ers.
Simmons recorded 10 tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 23-22 victory over the Chargers. Simmons' 10 tackles were his highest total of 2018, as he and Darian Stewart led the Broncos in stops. Although he hasn't been a reliable source of tackles, the safety will look to continue racking them up Sunday against the Steelers.
Simmons recorded five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Simmons' interception was his second of the year, tying his total from all of 2017. His pick was a bright spot for a Denver secondary that allowed four passing touchdowns. The Broncos will have their hands full again in Week 9, when they'll take on the Texans.
Simmons recorded four tackles (three solo), a pass defensed and an interception across 57 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. Simmons showed his athleticism as he jumped high in the air to secure an interception late in the third quarter. The safety only recorded two interceptions all of last season, a threshold he'll look to pass this season.
