According to 9NEWS' Mike Klis, Simmons received a $645,420 signing bonus, and when his four slotted years are added up, it totals $2.99 million.
Simmons projects more as a center-fielding free safety at the pro level, which is an area the Broncos have lacked. Darian Stewart typically plays the FS spot, but isn't prototypical for the position. Stewart is more of a box safety—a prowler and heat-seeking missile in the box—with great instincts and play awareness.
Simmons possesses the skill-set to play sideline-to-sideline for the Broncos, but he'll start off behind Stewart and T.J. Ward on the depth chart—deservedly so. Also, Simmons will likely impact special teams as a gunner. He's a sure tackler, not missing one in 2015.
Devontae Booker took home a $383,392 signing bonus, signing a deal worth up to $2.72 million, according to Klis. Once his knee is fully healed, Booker will step in behind C.J. Anderson and immediately upgrade the running back position.
Booker is a complete running back and he'll even push Anderson for first-team reps. He suffered a knee injury late last season at Utah, but said just last week that he's at about 90 percent in his recovery.
