49ers Worked Out Seven Players Including DE/OLB John Simon

According to Adam Caplan, the San Francisco 49ers brought in seven free agents for workouts on Wednesday including DE/OLB John Simon.

The full list of tryouts for the 49ers includes:

  1. LB J.T. Thomas
  2. OLB Erik Walden
  3. DE/OLB John Simon
  4. LB Hayes Pullard
  5. DE Ryan Delaire
  6. DE Hau’oli Kikaha
  7. LB Terrence Garvin

Of this group, the 49ers signed Garvin to their active roster.

Simon, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2013. He spent just over a year in Baltimore before he was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later signed on to the Ravens’ practice squad.

After Simon played out the 2016 season under a low-round restricted tender, the Colts signed him to a three-year, $14 million contract last year only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Simon appeared in nine games for the Colts and recorded 43 tackles, three sacks, an interception returned for a touchdown, and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 55 edge rusher out of 115 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available 2018 NFL Free Agents list.
