Denver Broncos place franchise tag on Justin Simmons again

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos safety Justin Simmons is the first NFL player to be franchise tagged in 2021.

NFL teams have until Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST to use the tag to prevent a pending free agent from hitting the open market.

The Broncos went ahead Friday and tagged their star safety for the second consecutive year. They have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal or Simmons would have to sign his $13.7 million franchise tag tender to play in 2021.
