It’s been a day of former Ohio State defensive lineman inking deals in the NFL. First, a report from Adam Schefter surfaced announcing that Sam Hubbard had agreed to a contract extension with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Quickly followed by that, was an announcement by the Tennessee Titans that they have come to terms with former Buckeye John Simon. Contract terms were not immediately available, but it’ll be the fifth team Simon has played for over his eight-year career. Simon was drafted by the Ravens in the 2013 NFL draft, and also spent time with the Texans, Colts, and most recently, the Patriots.
During his NFL career so far, Simon has played in 97 games, with 52 starts. He’s recorded 277 tackles, and 21 sacks, 25 tackles for a loss, and two forced fumbles.
