Rookie deals for first round picks are for 4 years with a team option for the 5th. There aren’t many rookies that holdout into training camp anymore, but I was a little worried about the Titans getting this deal done- mainly because Simmons is coming off the torn ACL. That could have been a huge hangup in a contract negotiation. Apparently it was not.
Now we wait for Simmons to be ready to play. I still don’t think he misses the whole season. My prediction is that he is back for that run of 3 AFC South games at the end of the Titans schedule. That might be optimistic, but guys come back quickly from those these days.
Simmons is the 4th pick of their 6 pick draft class that they have signed. The two that remain unsigned are A.J. Brown and Nate Davis.
