Texans to sign OLB John Simon

Houston are adding another player to the outside linebacker position.

On Tuesday, according to The Baltimore Sun, the Texans will sign outside linebacker John Simon to the team's 53-man roster. Simon has been on the Ravens' practice squad since the beginning of the regular season.

Simon was a fourth-round draft pick by Baltimore out of Ohio State in 2013. He was mostly a special teams player a year ago, seeing limited time on defense. After having an excellent final preseason game, Simon was somewhat of a surprise cut before the regular season began.

He was placed on the practice squad after clearing waivers. After what could have been perceived as a slight by the Ravens' coaching staff, Simon will now be back on a 53-man roster.
