Eagles identified as the optimal destination for Pro Bowl safety.

Vic Fangio’s tenure as the head coach of the Denver Broncos was marked by challenges in finding a high-caliber starting quarterback and offensive coordinator. Despite lasting for three seasons, his defenses consistently ranked among the most formidable in football, and his departure elicited powerful testimonials from players who appreciated his leadership.

Among those offering such praise was Justin Simmons, who is now available in the open market after being released by the Broncos. While Simmons turning 30 may have contributed to his departure, it has left a Pro Bowl safety looking for a new team.

Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report suggests that Simmons could find a favorable fit with the Philadelphia Eagles in the upcoming 2024 free agency period. Simmons’ longstanding eight-year career in Denver, coupled with his prior collaboration with the Eagles’ new defensive backs coach, Christian Parker, adds weight to the possibility of a reunion in Philadelphia.

The Eagles, boasting over $40 million in salary cap space, have ample room to bring Simmons on board. Despite the availability of other top safeties in the market, the potential for a reunion with Fangio, combined with Simmons’ proven excellence, could make this a compelling opportunity for Philadelphia.
