Denver Broncos: 5 things to expect in the 2021 offseason
3. Justin Simmons extension
The Denver Broncos want safety Justin Simmons back. Simmons wants to be back in the Mile High City.
Let’s do a deal.
According to Over The Cap, the Broncos currently have the fifth-most cap space at $42,350,603.
Re-signing Simmons has got to be the team’s number one priority this offseason. Simmons is only 27-years old and is already a top player at his position.
If there’s one player the Broncos should sign to a contract extension, it has to be Simmons. You can make a case for somebody like Shelby Harris, but Simmons is more of a game-changer in that he makes plays on the football with his range and athleticism and is a solid tackler.
It would be a disappointment if the two sides are unable to get a deal done by the time a franchise tag would have to be applied to Simmons. That being said, I think both sides come to an agreement, keeping Simmons in Denver for a long, long time.
