The Tennessee Titans announced a series of roster moves on Sunday as they prepare to cut their roster down to 53 players by Tuesday’s deadline.
The full list of roster moves from the Titans includes:
- Titans released DE John Simon and DB Clayton Geathers.
- Titans waived DL Freedom Akinmoladun, DB Nate Brooks and LB Cassh Maluia.
- Titans placed RB Brian Hill on injured reserve.
- Titans placed C Ben Jones on the COVID-19 list.
Simon, 30, 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.
He was signed off of the Ravens’ practice squad by the Texans and spent the next three seasons in Houston.
After Simon played out the 2016 season under a low-round restricted tender for the Texans, the Colts signed him to a three-year, $14 million contract in 2017. He later caught on with the Patriots before joining the Titans this past July.
In 2020, Simon played in all 16 games for the Patriots, recording 34 total tackles and two sacks.
