According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, “Source: The #Broncos are bringing back one of their own, signing safety PJ Locke to a two-year deal worth $7 million base and $9 million maximum.” Locke has returned, with Justin Simmons out.

Locke signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2019, but was waived during the team’s final roster cuts. In 2019, the safety was signed to the Broncos practice squad, but was later waived and then re-signed.

Locke made his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans and was later elevated to the active roster in September 2020. According to Broncos Wire, Locke has 53 tackles, five pass breakups, two forced fumbles, three sacks, and one interception in 12 games last season.

Locke and Caden Sterns will be the Broncos’ starting safeties next season. Sterns sustained a torn patella tendon against the Las Vegas Raiders last year, but he is expected to be healthy this season. The Broncos have released other safeties, including Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson. JL Skinner and Delarrin Turner-Yell are two other safeties who have joined the squad.
