John Simon signs his tender to stay with Texans

Texans outside linebacker John Simon signed his $1.671 million restricted free agent tender.

Simon played in every game last season, registering a career-high 53 tackles and five sacks for the AFC South champions.

‎Simon is a former Baltimore Ravens fourth-round draft pick from Ohio State where he was a Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

Simon is one of the strongest players on the roster and a 6-1, 252-pound former All-Big Ten Conference selection and third-team All-American. He made major strides last season playing for linebackers coach Mike Vrabel, his former position coach with the Buckeyes.

When Simon was at Ohio State, coach Urban Meyer said the Youngstown, Ohio native was his favorite player he’d coached along with Tim Tebow, the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Meyer coached at the University of Florida.
