    Broncos' Justin Simmons: Team seeking long-term deal

    The Denver Broncos intend to reach a long-term contract with Justin Simmons before exploring the possibility of franchise tagging him for a second consecutive year, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.With the franchise tag window opening Tuesday and extending through March 9, new Broncos GM George Paton is faced with one of his first critical decisions. Simmons, who earned the first Pro-Bowl nod of his career while playing on the tag in 2019, is a homegrown player who has developed into one of the premier safety talents in the league. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent, but both sides have expressed interest in reaching an extension. The 27-year-old has composed three consecutive 90-plus tackle seasons, while his nine interceptions since the start of 2019 rank second to only Tyrann Mathieu among safeties. Matt Prater, Ryan Clady, Demaryius Thomas and Von Miller (ankle) all landed long-term extensions with the organization after receiving the franchise tag during John Elway's GM tenure. Paton will be directing personnel decisions this offseason, however.

    Broncos' Justin Simmons: Sets career mark in picks

    Justin Simmons finished the 2020 season with 96 tackles, three tackles for loss, five interceptions, nine passes defensed and a fumble recovery.Playing on the franchise tag, it's hard to imagine Simmons's season going any better for him. The Boston College product was one off his career high in tackles and set a career mark in interceptions with five, including the game-sealer in Week 11 versus Miami.  All the while, he covered up the mistakes of a very young, injured cornerback corps. Simmons doubtlessly benefits from head coach Vic Fangio's zone-heavy scheme, but he's earned the right to be one of the league's highest-paid safeties no matter where he plays in 2021.
