While the Broncos used the franchise tag on safety Justin Simmons, it appears he won’t have to play on it.

Benjamin Allbright of KOA Colorado reports the deal is done as a four-year, $61 million contract with $35 million guaranteed — making Simmons the league’s highest-paid safety.

Simmons has been one of the league’s most productive safeties since Denver selected him in the third round of the 2016 draft. He’s recorded 16 interceptions and 37 passes defensed in his five seasons.
