    Default Sources saying Cory Simon is a Colt

    SIMON SAYS "YES" TO COLTS?

    A league source has tipped us off to a rumor making the rounds regarding the destination of former Eagles defensive tackle Corey Simon.

    Per the source, there's talk that the Colts have reached an agreement with Simon on a deal carrying a $13 million signing bonus.

    As another league source explained, the bonus money (if the rumors are true) most likely includes a sizable 2006 option bonus, given the team's current cap situation.

    The move would make sense, since the Colts' current depth chart at the D-tackle position features only two veterans -- 2002 second-round pick Larry Tripplett and 2003 free-agent pickup Montae Reagor, who hasn't played at all in the preseason due to a groin injury. The rest are first-year player Jason Stewart, 2005 third-round pick Vincent Burns, 2005 undrafted free agent Darrell Reid, journeyman Josh Mallard, and 2005 undrafted free agent Blake Lobel.

    Several teams have expressed interest in Simon, and several others were believed to be interested in acquiring him. Since he's represented by Roosevelt Barnes and Eugene Parker, we can't help but wonder what one of their other clients, Steelers receiver Hines Ward, thinks about the speed with which Simon got paid (if, again, the rumors are true). Ward is still waiting for Parker and/or Barnes to wrap up negotiations on a long-term deal that supposedly was imminent when Ward ended a holdout more than two weeks ago.

    I hope we can still resign some FAs the next couple years. This is nice, but losing Wayne or Freeney b/c of this would **** me off.

    How accurate is this website.

    Getting Simon this late in the game would be amazing.

    There remain a few incidental elements to be addressed, but ESPN.com confirmed Wednesday night through sources close to the negotiations that the Indianapolis Colts have reached agreement with defensive tackle Corey Simon on virtually all the major financial components of a contract, and that an agreement could be officially struck as early as Thursday morning.


    In fact, two Colts players told ESPN.com on Wednesday night that they were apprised by a member of the coaching staff earlier in the evening that the acquisition of Simon is now imminent.

    Let's all do our "HAPPY DANCE"!

    Does mean that we would most likely lose Edge after this season?

    But it's nice to load up for this year.

    Edge I don't mind, but losing Wayne woudl kill our offense. He is just as important as Harrison

    amazing pick up for the colts....very solid....EDGE CANT BE PISSED EVEN THOUGH WE SIGNED COREY SIMON I GUARANTEE HE IS MAKING MUCH LESS THAN WHAT EDGE WAS ASKING

    Well I'm pissed. If this means losing Freeney and Wayne, I will be livid. Without Wayne, our offense is not that special. And without Freeney, our line sucks. Dammit Colts, what are you thinking??!?!

    Not to overstate this or sound like I'm proclaiming greatness, but this is a Super Bowl-run type of move. Could it cost them in the future? Of course. Edge is gone. Gone, gone gone. But you never know about Wayne.

    Four years of AFC title games or a better run at just one Super Bowl? Considering Marvin's age and that James was likely gone next year anyway ... roll the dice. Make a play. Stop being second best.

    This is for sure a Super Bowl move. The colts are at a peak with talent right now and the CAP is gonna kick there *** soon with out some very fancy manuvering. Edge gone next year has been a foregone conclusion when he was franchised. He is a great back, but it is to risky to sign a back at his age to a long term big money contract. I agree this probably will cost us Wayne, so be it we had to make a move like this. Wayne is solid, but not great. He can be replaced. Freeny I hope we can sign, with the front 4 we will have this year QB's should be falling like rain. Hopefully Simon will help plug that huge hole up the middle of our D, hell my fat *** could run on them. I think this is a great move for this season, it will cost us in the future, but that is the NFL of today.

    So they say now, but who knows what happens in 2 years. But losing Wayne means our offense does not stay as the great one it is. Wayne is as important as Harrison and Stokley, because he is the biggest target Manning has.

    Sigh, oh well. Hopefully this move this year will at least get us a super bowl. And hopefully we can get Wayne to re-sign.

    I don't get this whole "omg our offense will be bad without Wayne" attitude some people have.

    Our offense was just fine before he emerged. I would trade anyone on our offense minus Peyton for a guy who is an All-Pro player that helps against the run. If it costs us Wayne, so be it.

    With Marlin Jackson looking like the real deal at CB so far, and Doss, and Sanders getting better .... adding a run stopping DT in the middle is an absolute steal. Especially for nothing but cap space at the moment, and only the POSSIBILITY of losing a WR at the end of the year.

    At this point taking a hit on offense for an All-Pro defender is an easy thing to take, if you've been watching the Colts as much as I have the last few years. Yikes.

    I'm confident that as long as Peyton Manning is the QB, our offense will not suck. And I think Wayne and James would be bad losses, but not ones that we couldn't overcome.

    Suave, you will get your request. I'm telling you Polian said he WILL sign Wayne at all costs and yes I heard this from Polian. Edge on the other hand is a different story.

    I'm definitely amped for the season now.

    As for losing Wayne, Edge or both, I'm rather indifferent. We've been offensive heavy for years, we need more balance if we expect to win a championship. This is a strike in the direction of balance. Besides, we currently have three good receivers, and one good tight end. Even if we lost Wayne, we still have Harrison, Stokley, and Clark (and even Walters).

    Good move Colts!


    "Like [Jonathan Bender], AMC's Pacer was supposed to be fitted with a rotary engine--but both rotaries had technical problems late in their development (read: after incurring heavy research costs) that prevented them from seeing the light of day. Of course, both vehicles had plenty of problems that did reach production. The Pacer was a dud in terms of quality, execution and particularly styling. Make your own assessment about its bizarre proportions, but don't miss the one door that's bigger than the other."
