The deadline for announcing franchise tags is Tuesday, March 9. Today the first franchise tag was announced. We’ll keep track of the players who have been tagged and discuss them in this thread.
DEN FS Justin Simmons
I like to think I watch football a lot, but “DEN FS Justin Simmons” gave me a big questionmark.
Safeties are still very underrated in this league. It’s because of the camera angles.
Thought you would have heard last year when he was tagged
Is Simmons the only positive result of the Vance Joseph regime? I remember the minor furor among Broncos players and fans when Joseph cut TJ Ward to make room for Simmons, but Justin showed everyone his valuebon the field pretty much immediately.
5 yrs, $77,430,940
Seems like a no brainer
