NFC West rival Arizona Cardinals pick up ex-Seahawks CB Tharold Simon
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have been awarded their waiver claim on cornerback Tharold Simon from the Seattle Seahawks.
To make room on the roster, the Cardinals waived/injured linebacker Lamar Luis (quad).
Simon was a fifth-round draft pick of the Seahawks out of LSU in 2013. He missed his rookie season with a foot injury and played in 11 games the past two seasons, five as a starter. He had 11 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed.
The Cardinals have had issues at the cornerback position opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson.
At LSU, Simon was a teammate of Arizona defensive players Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu and Kevin Minter.
