Broncos Safety Wins Community MVP Award For Week 6

The Denver Broncos have been one of the NFL's biggest disappointments thus far in 2022, with Russell Wilson struggling mightily to deal with the hype after signing a $245 million deal, and on top of that, they lost in Week 5 in arguably the worst game in the NFL in recent memory, but this week, they had some good news come their way. This week, the team saw safety Justin Simmons activated from Injured Reserve, and beyond that, he was recognized with a great honour, as the Pro Bowl safety was honoured with the NFL's weekly Community MVP award.

He did this by donating more than $30,000 to help local youth development programs, as well as using the money from a recent fundraiser from his charity to help rebuild a local playground, and while it may seem small for someone playing in the NFL, things like this really do go a long way within the community.

One of the best parts for most players in the NFL is the ability to give back to the youth and inspire the next generation, and week after week, the league continues to honour the great work that is done off the field, and while rings mean the most to these players, being allowed to do things like this away from the field must be mightily rewarding too.
