After months of being locked in a dispute with the Colts, Corey Simon reportedly learns that…
Colts May Not Have Seen the Last of Simon
"We had him in for a physical, and we worked Corey out and he seemed to be in good shape," Titans coach Jeff Fisher told The Tennessean.
The Titans continue to look for help to shore-up a run defense that allowed 144.6 yards per game, earning a lackluster ranking of 30th in the league in that category.
After a training camp injury forced him to have arthroscopic knee surgery last year, Simon never saw the field again with the Colts in 2006. The team sent him for a number of tests as his recovery period dragged on. Following those tests, he was placed on the non-football illness/injury list in with an undisclosed condition last October, ending his season.
At the time of the decision, Colts president Bill Polian said, "In deference to Corey's privacy and in compliance with federal medical privacy laws, we may not discuss the particulars of Corey's condition other than to say it is an illness not an injury and is unrelated to the knee surgery he had in August. It is not football-related.
"Fortunately, we are told it is not life-threatening, but it has severely limited Corey's ability to condition, practice or play and has been debilitating for him."
The Colts released Simon earlier this month as they opened training camp after he failed his physical.
There has been no further statement by the team or Simon's agent as to further interest or negotiations, but Fisher's positive reaction to Simon's overall condition seems to point towards Tennessee at least exploring whether or not they can reach a reasonable agreement with him. Simon's last contract with the Colts, which he signed back in 2005, was a five-year deal worth $30 million.
