Simon was released by the Redskins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Simon played in nine games for Arizona last season, though he totaled just six tackles on the season as primarily a special teams player. He'll look to catch on as a reserve with another team in 2017.
Simon signed a futures contract with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Simon began the 2016 season as a member of the Seahawks, but was waived prior to Week 2 only to be claimed by the Cardinals shortly thereafter. However, he ultimately finished out the season in Arizona having logged just six tackles across 76 snaps on defense and will now set his aims to fight for a reserve role in Washington during the offseason.
Simon (ankle) has been removed from the Cardinals' injury report, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Simon was unable to suit up for Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, but the ankle issue doesn't appear to have lingered for much longer. He could be in line for an expanded role if fellow cornerback Marcus Cooper (back) is unable to play.
Simon (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins. Simon failed to practice the entire week except for limited participation Friday, leaving the Cardinals to sideline their reserve cornerback. Expect Brandon Williams to have an expanded role in his absence.
Simon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Simon was unable to practice on Wednesday and Thursday about did see a limited amount of work in Friday's session. If he's held out on Sunday look for Justin Bethel and Brandon Williams to see some extra snaps.
