Welcome back to East Rutherford, Isaiah Simmons! It took longer than expected, but NY Giants general manager Joe Schoen was able to make everyone happy by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with Simmons quite late in free agency.

There was some worry the former first-round pick would end up inking with a new team this offseason, but we now know he'll be back with the G-Men in 2024. The Giants announced the news, but Simmons also took to social media to let people know he'll be back in New York this campaign. He did so with a simple, but obvious emoji:

Short and to the point, all Simmons had to do was tweet out the Statue of Liberty to let Giants Nation know he'll be ready to make more plays for this defense moving forward. Thanks to his versatility, Simmons could line up at either safety or linebacker for new defensive coordinator Shane Bowen.

Prior to the 2023 season getting underway, the Giants and Schoen traded the Cardinals a late-round pick for Simmons' services. On the year, the 6-4, 240-pounder posted 50 total tackles, three pass deflections, one forced fumble and this unforgettable pick-six to seal a win over the Commanders at FedEx Field:

That was one of the best defensive plays of the season for the Giants and things were only made better thanks to a fan in the stands displaying Sam Howell-type accuracy by launching a beer can at Simmons, but missing him by a few yards.

With Xavier McKinney leaving for Green Bay, the Giants need some depth at safety. Luckily, that's what Simmons will be able to provide if he's needed at that spot. Regardless of if he lines up at safety or LB, getting Simmons back feels like a pretty solid win at this point of the spring.

We'll see if the fifth-year playmaker will be able to make a strong impact for Big Blue once the fall rolls around, but this news sure is exciting.
