It's been a frustrating season so far for Justin Simmons and the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are off to a 2-4 start, while Simmons has played in just two games due to injury.

Even so, the disappointment hasn't prevented Simmons from losing sight of what's really important.

While he hasn't been able to make much of an impact on the field yet this year, Simmons is still making his presence felt off the field. Simmons is giving back to the community by donating over $30,000 to local youth charities. Simmons and his wife, Taryn, gave $10,031.31 each to the Denver Public Schools Foundation, Boys Hope Girls Hope of Colorado and the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver.

What's more, the Justin Simmons Foundation also awarded a $50,000 grant to a local elementary school to help build a playground.

Simmons, 30, has been with the Broncos since the team took him in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He's emerged as one of the best safeties in the game since then, earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2020.

After positively affecting so many local children, Simmons will try to help Denver beat the New York Jets during Week 7. The Broncos are currently favored by 1.5 points at home on FanDiuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
