Simmons has truly been a consistent and dominant force for Tennessee since joining the organization as a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 56 games over 4 seasons with 21 sacks, 46 QB hits, 19 pass breakups and 2 forced fumbles.
Simmons has been named a second-team All-Pro the past two seasons as he has compiled 16 total sacks and 13 pass breakups while anchoring the Titans’ defensive line. Now, it looks like he’s getting rewarded after back-to-back Pro Bowls.
