View Full Version : Say goodbye to Corey Simon

(Aug. 30, 2005) -- Free agent defensive tackle Corey Simon is now on the clock. And he is not expected to be on the clock long.

Simon's agents said they spoke with eight teams, including the Colts, Giants, Bengals, Packers, Bills and Seahawks.
The Colts' interest is intriguing on many fronts. Indianapolis head coach Tony Dungy would be able to deploy Simon in much the same way he used Warren Sapp in Tampa Bay. But the question becomes whether the cap-strapped Colts can afford Simon, who rejected a $12 million signing bonus from the Ravens during the offseason.

Simon is seeking enough money that the Ravens, who once really wanted Simon, admitted they will be unable to pay him what he wants now. And so Simon, who was released by the team, is seeking the best offer and best situation before deciding where to play.

A decision should be made by early next week, but to date no visits were scheduled. And none might be. Numbers will do the talking here, and Simon is vowing to be ready to play in the regular-season opener -- wherever that is.

We may have a chance at Warrick or Price if they will work for the vet minimum. /or else we are what we are for the season.

The other article that Joe Seahawk posted said the Seahags, Chiefs, and some other team were the only ones who had contacted Simon.

Why the f*ck would we want to bring in other people's cast offs? I guess I just don't understand some people's need to bring in as many FAs as possible, expecially mediocre ones. We already have enough 2nd tier players.

Apparently the Seahawks are bringing in Warrick tomorrow. :shrug: return guy I guess..

The Numbers Game
Things may get very interesting for the Seahawks over the next 24 hours as Peter Warrick, the former Cincinnati Bengals receiver, is on his way to Kirkland for a physical after being released by the Bengals Tuesday.

Warrick, 28, averaged 63 catches and nearly 700 yards his first four seasons with the Bengals, and nearly 10 yards a punt return. But last season he played in only four games due to a knee injury, and thatís what the Seahawks medical staff will look at very closely on Wednesday. The primary interest appears to be as a kick-returner, but if heís healthy, the 5-11, 180-pound Warrick is an electrifying player and could be a factor as a wide receiver as well. A consensus All-American as a junior and senior at Florida State, he also has a degree in political science.

I know a certain cast off from the Ravens a few years back that seemed to do much better than expected.

Simon is stoned if he thinks any team has 12 million to give him at this point in the year. I just don't see it happening.

I haven't seen any serious talk from Chiefs camp about the guy. I think KC's interest is on the level of "he'd be nice to have" rather than "let's find out what it will take to get him".

It would be nice to have him, but I just don't think the team has the money.

Signing bonus can be amortized across many seasons. Pony up the f%&ing cah and get the deal done.

Did anyone really think he would sign with the Chiefs? I thought he would be a nice addition, but I never gave the situation any serious thought. There's no way he plays in KC except on an opponents team... :harumph:

Hey now, the only thing I like previously used is my women. I just don't have the time to break them in properly. When they start selling those at garage sales, maybe I'll spend more time driving neighborhoods on the weekends!

Exactly - and some team will do just that. It more about signing bonus than it is salary these days.

Athan is reporting him and his agent are scheduled to meet with CP later this week. Surely he wouldn't be making that up would he?

A bigger push up the middle would make our pass rush a lot better, and our pass defense is still a big concern.

yes it would ... yes it is


especially until warfield gets back after game 4



would be even better if Simon was a DE ... but he's not and we have to deal with what's available

Simon will probably sign for whichever team offers the most money. Then he will go on to become another former Eagle FA bust.

I could be wrong (wouldn't surprise me any) but I thought no contracts at this point can run beyond 2007 when the current CBA runs out. That's only 3 seasons. :shrug:

That's only 3 seasons.You're correct within the confines of HC's statement. IIRC, because of the uncapped year, no signing bonus can be spread over more than the next four years. The contract itself can cover a longer period, but not the pro-rating of the bonus.

Eagle FA bust? I bet you can't name a single former Eagle, especially a defensive player, who left to sign a huge contract with another team only to flame out.

Check that...

I bet you cant name two.

Hold on...

better make it three...

How about four just to be safe?

Yep. D-Line is a glaring weakness for us right now (given that Trent is really ok).
