Picked up by the Patriots last September after being surprisingly cut by the Indianapolis Colts, Simon appeared in 14 total games (regular season and postseason) for the Patriots last season and recorded 21 total tackles and 2.5 sacks, as well as a pass deflection in the Super Bowl win over the Los Angeles Rams.
