EAGLES, DT SIMON PART WAYS

EAGLES, DT SIMON PART WAYS




August 28, 2005
By CHRIS McPHERSON


The Eagles announced Sunday night that they have withdrawn the franchise tag on defensive tackle Corey Simon, meaning that he is now an unrestricted free agent.
"We appreciate all that Corey has done for this organization over the last five years," said head coach Andy Reid in a statement. "With the great amount of depth and talent we have along the defensive line, we chose to give Corey an opportunity to sign with another team."


DT Simon never signed the tender that would have guaranteed him over $5 million this season
Simon, the team's first-round draft pick and the No. 6 overall selection in 2000, was given the franchise tag in the off-season, meaning he could not sign with another team unless that team were to surrender two first-round draft picks as compensation.

By being given the franchise tag, which was done Feb. 10, Simon would have made the equivalent of the top five paid defensive tackles in the league in 2005 - which would have been approximately $5.1 million.

At the time the tag was placed, head coach Andy Reid was happy with that decision.

"As I said earlier this week, Corey's a good player and his personality fits very well in our locker room," said Reid in February. "He's a talented player against the pass and against the run. We're happy to take this step to keep him in Philadelphia."

However, Simon never signed the tender and did not report to any of the team's mini-camps or training camp.

There were published reports that Simon would come in the week of the season opener, but that will never be known. There were also published reports that Simon had been traded by the Eagles, but Simon and the other team involved could not agree on compensation.

In Simon's place, Darwin Walker has teamed up with Hollis Thomas as the starters at the defensive tackle position. Off the bench has been first-round draft pick Mike Patterson, who has been stellar (two sacks in the preseason).

The play of the other tackles has helped defensive coordinator Jim Johnson not worry about Simon's presence.

"I think we are playing pretty good defense right now. To say I wish Corey was not here, no I wish he was here, but he's not here and I said it before, we just move on," Johnson said. "It's an opportunity for those other guys that are playing pretty well. We are just going to see what happens with Corey. I have no idea."

In his five seasons as an Eagle, Simon amassed 270 tackles and 35 sacks. He set the rookie record for sacks with 9.5 in 2000. Simon was named to the 2004 Pro Bowl after posting 64 tackles and 7.5 sacks in the 2003 season.

Can we actually give Junior Siavii to Corey Simon and if so, will he take less money in exchange?

If the Eagles wanted to screw this guy over, they waited till the exact right time to release him. Hardly anyone has cap money, he won't get near what he'd get im the open market at the beginning of free agency.

That being said, he plays the position the Chiefs could use a player at badly. They should atleast bring him in here and see if they can make a decent offer. I highly doubt its possible for us to get him, unless no one else has any money either.

I can't believe no one has posted the latest Clayton-Salary-Cap article.

Of course, I haven't been able to find it for the last 10 minutes, so what the hell am I talking about?

It may become a situation for Simon where he accepts a 1 year deal with someone, expecting to get a long term deal in the off-season when teams can plan their salary cap accordingly. Do the Chiefs have enough dough to entice him here for a year as a mercenary? Doubt it. I'm sure Carl and DV would tell you that a rotation of Sims, Dalton and Browning will suffice.

It also wouldn't surprise me if a team (or teams) has some cap money stashed away for this very reason.
