Corey Simon Cut Loose

The Indianapolis Colts released former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Corey Simon on Saturday.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said Wednesday that he expected to release the tackle within the next few days.

Simon did not pass his physical last weekend. He was expected to report to camp on time July 29 but was never seen at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology.

Simon did not play last year during the Colts' Super Bowl-winning season and was eventually placed on the non-football illness/injury list with an undisclosed ailment. [Sporting News]

It's a shame that Corey literally ate his way out of the NFL. He was a force at one point in his career. I would be very surprised if anybody were to sign him. Actually I take that back. The NFL seems to give everybody another shot, no matter how done they are.
