NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -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.
Neither team officials nor Simon's agent, Roosevelt Barnes, immediately returned telephone messages from The Associated Press. But coach Jeff Fisher said Monday the decision to join the team was in Simon's hands.
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.
He was the sixth pick overall in 2000 by the Philadelphia Eagles and a Pro Bowler in 2003. He spent five seasons with Philadelphia and had 270 tackles and 32 sacks, but the Eagles released him just before the 2005 season because he refused to sign a one-year franchise tender.
If healthy, he could help a defense that ranked 30th in the NFL against the run last season, giving up 144.6 yards per game.
