SIMON SAYS

Last week, Tennessee told free-agent defensive tackle Corey Simon that, if he wanted to sign with the Titans, he needed to be on the practice field no later than Tuesday, Aug. 28.

For one week, the Titans never heard back from Simon. Then, early Monday night, Simon weighed in and told Tennessee he was willing to take its offer and he was back on the field Tuesday.

Simon, 30, a Pro-Bowl selection in 2003, has plenty at stake. The Titans were the only team actively interested in signing him, though three other teams called to gauge the defensive tackle's desire. They gave Simon a one-year, minimum-type deal with some incentives.

Now, if Simon wants one more NFL pay day, he will have to earn it with his play this season, on a line that needs help.

Former third-round pick Rien Long did not work out for the Titans the way they would have hoped. Tennessee needs help at tackle. Simon needed a team to prove he still wants to play this game, as he insists. Now they have each other, and Simon hopes this union works out better than his previous two in Indianapolis and Philadelphia.

I don't expect this signing to bother us too much. Simon seems to be a spent force.

Only thing L-Dub will be eating up is rushing yards on the Texans. :bat:

got a very good point on that one, also if money (new contract) does't get him now, nothing will.. (probably last potential big contract he could get)

Ahhh but think of it from the gamblers point of view:

If Simon can beast for 4 games (25%) with AH on a contract year think of what that COULD mean. AH at peak [contract season for Mr. Stomp?]
who is a top penatrator in the league, Simon playing back to his Eagle days (remember I am only looking for 4 games not an entire season) we could steal a game from any contender with KVB on the oustide.

Yeah it maybe Koolaide, but I keep hope alive!

Anything above vet a minimum plus incentives would have been a crazy contract. As it stands I think it's a low risk signing that may pay off.

What scares me is if he has a great year & we offer a him a big contract.That wouldn't be good.
