Who will make the Denver Broncos’ roster at safety in 2020?
The Denver Broncos might just have the best duo of safeties in the NFL right now with 2nd-team All-Pro Justin Simmons and big-money 2019 free agent Kareem Jackson.
Simmons and Jackson were truly an elite safety duo in 2019, combining for 164 tackles, six interceptions, six tackles for loss, 25 pass breakups, and a forced fumble.
They were all over the field and are undoubtedly a major reason why the Broncos ranked fifth in the NFL with just 19 passing touchdowns allowed in the 2019 season (11th in passing yards allowed).
The No Fly Zone may not exist in Denver anymore, but Simmons and Jackson have provided the Broncos with the foundation for a new era of No Fly in the Mile High City.
The question right now is — who is joining them on the roster at the safety position?
Will Parks, one of the top reserves on the Broncos’ defense over the past four seasons, has moved on to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Broncos didn’t sign any safeties in free agency, nor did they draft anyone in the 2020 NFL Draft. Who is going to be playing the safety position for Denver in 2020 behind Simmons and Jackson?
