2017 NFL Free Agent Tracker: John Simon Signs Three-Year Deal With Colts

The Texans saw another free agent leave Houston for a divisional rival.

Following A.J. Bouye’s decision to sign with another AFC South team, John Simon has also chosen to remain in the division. Just not with your Houston Texans.

Simon became a solid, if unspectacular, player for the Texans. I feel much the same way about his departure as I did about Quintin Demps leaving. Good for Simon and his family; I’m happy he got the kind of dollars and security he was almost sure not to get in Houston, especially considering the financial commitments (both current and looming) and talent level the Texans have at linebacker. Here’s hoping Simon has success in Indianapolis, with the requisite caveat that I’d prefer it if he struggles the two times each year the Colts face the Texans.
