  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Doesn't get fifth-year option

    The Cardinals informed Simmons on Monday that his fifth-year team option for 2024 won't be exercised, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Teams needed to make decisions on such options for 2020 first-round picks by Monday, and Simmons now will be playing out the final year of his first deal as a pro in the upcoming campaign. Through three seasons, he's played all over Arizona's defense, with the last two amounting to 204 tackles, 5.5 sacks, three interceptions (one for a touchdown), two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 34 games. Expect Simmons' versatility to be utilized again in 2023.

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Makes 11 stops Week 16

    Thompson totaled 11 tackles (five solo) against the Buccaneers in the Cardinals' Christmas Day loss.

    Simmons tied for the team lead tackles in the contest with Jalen Thompson, as the former finished with his second double-digit tackle performance of the campaign. Simmons has a chance to hit the 100-tackle mark for the second straight season if he can tally 15 stops over Arizona's final two contests.

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Logs eight tackles Week 15

    Simmons recorded eight stops (five solo) Sunday in a loss to the Broncos.

    Simmons tied for second on Arizona with eight tackles, a mark he has hit in two of the team's past three games. The third-year linebacker has 74 tackles through 14 games on the campaign, so he'll need to make a big push over the final three weeks of the regular season to match last year's total of 105 stops.

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Grabs INT in so-so performance

    Simmons recorded six tackles (two solo) and an interception in Monday's 27-13 defeat versus New England.

    Simmons logged the first of three total interceptions in the game, picking off Patriots quarterback Mac Jones late in the first quarter. This marked the hybrid linebacker's second interception of the season and the fourth of his three-year career. However, he did not end up having that big of an impact Monday, as four of his tackles came after the Cardinals were already down 27-13 in the fourth quarter. Simmons has now accumulated 66 tackles, three sacks and six passes defended over 13 games this season, and he should have a chance to add to all of these totals while facing a Denver offense that will likely be without starting quarterback Russell Wilson (concussion).

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Stuffs stat sheet Week 12

    Simmons recorded eight solo tackles, including one sack and a pass defended during Sunday's 25-24 defeat versus the Chargers.

    Simmons finished with a team lead in tackles while playing his second-highest share of Arizona's defensive snaps this season. The 6-foot-4 linebacker also logged his third tackle in the last five weeks, bringing down quarterback Justin Herbert late in the fourth quarter for a 13-yard loss on third down. Simmons now has 60 tackles, three sacks, five passes defended, one interception and two forced fumbles over 12 games this season, and he should continue to play a do-it-all role moving forward.

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Seven solo stops Sunday

    Simmons recorded seven solo tackles during Sunday's 27-17 win over the Rams.

    Simmons finished as the Cardinals' second-leading tackler behind cornerback Antonio Hamilton. The 6-foot-4 linebacker also logged his fourth pass defended in the past five games, and he now has 49 tackles (39 solo), two sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery on 458 defensive snaps. Simmons will look to continue filling the stat sheet on Monday Night Football against San Francisco.

  • Cardinals' Isaiah Simmons: Continues to produce

    Simmons totaled eight tackles, including one sack, during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Seahawks.

    Through nine games this season, Simmons has a 13-tackle tally from Week 5 but also five others with three or fewer stops. However, he appears to have settled in over the last three outings, with 18 tackles, two sacks, one pick-six and a forced fumble that he recovered. Simmons' share of the defensive snaps may increase in the short term, as free safety Budda Baker is expected to miss a few weeks due to a high-ankle sprain. If that comes to pass, Simmons is a prime candidate to continue making his mark in box scores moving forward.
