NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Defensive tackle Corey Simon agreed to terms Tuesday with the Tennessee Titans and will try to resume his career after not playing in 2006.
Simon, who took a physical with the Titans a week ago, was expected to be at practice later Tuesday.
"Corey brings a combination of run-stuffing size and pass-rushing ability to the defensive tackle position," general manager Mike Reinfeldt said in a statement. "Prior to last season, he has been a consistent and productive player who contributed to playoff teams and we are excited to see him get a second chance here with the Titans to prove he still has that ability."
The NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting that it is a one-year deal.
Indianapolis released Simon on Aug. 4 after he failed his physical with the Colts at the start of training camp. He had arthroscopic knee surgery but was placed on the non-football illness-injury list Oct. 5 with an undisclosed ailment a year after signing a five-year, $30 million contract.
If healthy, he could help a defense that ranked 30th in the NFL against the run last year, giving up 144.6 yards per game.
