Default We signed Corey Simon

Hopefully it not for alot of green. Didn't he have some "mystery illness" when he was with the Colts.

If he's healthy and cheap, I really don't see a downside to this. If not, we'll have to wait and see. We definately needed another body inside though.

If he's healthy enough to play this also lets Tony Brown play both DT and DE depending on the situation, which is his best role in my opinion.

I knew we were working on a contract with him, since I've seen numerous "Simon meets with Titans" articles on Yahoo. I just didn't know how close he was to signing.

The only thing that bothers me is that he was released by the Colts, who are very thin at the DT position. So if he was able to play, or had the potential to contribute to their season at some point, one would think they would have kept him, even though he was out last year with a "non-football related illness" or something like that... But seeing as how he's passed our physicals and tests, I'm very excited about this signing. Its a one year deal, so its apparently no big financial signing. And if he's healthy, he can help in our DT rotation, even if he's not in his old form, and possibly even start if he's able to, so that we can be creative with Tony Brown. He only has upside. A healthy DT rotation of Haynesworth, Brown, and Simon is something I like a lot.

The Fish's Tuesday practice report, looks like Simon jumped right in a practiced today:

Also Rien Long had knee surgery. Looks like he may be a goner now. I expect him to be cut, especially with the Simon signing.

He is basically in for a try out. If we see he can't play, we can cut him. If we see he can play, then we got him for a bargain.

I think it was at least worth a shot. He says he is around 320 lbs. Doesn't seem to be injured at the moment since he's practicing.

I'm hoping he gets to play tomorrow night so we can see him in action.
