Ravens Worked Out CBs Tharold Simon & Steve Williams

According to Adam Caplan, the Ravens brought in CB Steve Williams and CB Tharold Simon for workouts on Tuesday.

Simon, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.367 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary $675,000 for the 2016 season.

The Seahawks waived him a few weeks into the regular season and was later claimed off of waivers by the Cardinals. Arizona decided to waive him last week to make room for CB Harlan Miller.

While Simon has shown some ability in the past, he’s dealt with numerous injuries since entering the NFL, which has led to him appearing in just 20 total games.

In 2016, Simon has appeared in nine games and recorded six tackles and no interceptions.

Williams, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Chargers back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.353 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season when he was cut loose coming out of the preseason.

The Rams signed him to a contract at the start of the regular season before cutting him loose a few weeks later. After a brief stint with the Chargers, Williams returned to the Rams in November. However, Los Angeles once again decided to waive him last week.

In 2016, Williams has appeared in six games and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
