Denver Broncos Re-Sign 14-Year Veteran Starting Safety

The Denver Broncos have made a significant move to bolster their defense by re-signing safety Kareem Jackson to a one-year deal.

Despite being 35 years old, Jackson has been a reliable and impactful presence in the Broncos' secondary since his arrival in 2019. Known for his consistency and ability to make plays, Jackson has consistently recorded over 80 combined tackles per season since 2020.

Last season, Jackson's performance reached new heights as he achieved a career-high 39 assists and 94 combined tackles, along with two fumble recoveries and three passes defended.

He also contributed two fumble recoveries, two tackles for loss, and three pass defended, showcasing his versatility and playmaking ability.

It is worth noting that Jackson's durability is commendable, as he has participated in over 95% of the team's defensive snaps during his four-year tenure in Denver.

Jackson's experience, consistency, and production as a tackler undoubtedly contribute to the Broncos' defensive strength. With his re-signing, the Broncos are ensuring the continuity of their strong safety position, as Jackson is expected to continue starting alongside Justin Simmons for the upcoming season.

As he enters his 14th NFL season, Jackson has amassed 902 total tackles, three sacks, six forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries, 20 interceptions, and 106 passes defended across 193 games played. Photo Credit: Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports
