Seahawks waived CB Tharold Simon.

An oft-talked about prospect, Simon is a fourth-year pro who's made only five career starts, all of which came in 2014. He was limited to one game by a toe injury last season, and has had major injury issues. Simon drew hyperbolic praise from Richard Sherman this summer, but is 25 with a résumé that doesn't match the hype.

Seahawks CB Tharold Simon (toe) has been a full participant in the offseason program.

Injuries have wrecked the 2013 fifth-rounder's career to date, but Simon is getting first-team reps on defense with DeShawn Shead sidelined. "He’s doing everything," coach Pete Carroll said. "This is a really good look at him, this is the best we have seen him. ... He’s going to have a great, competitive opportunity because he’s put together a great off-season." Were Simon to beat out Shead for No. 3 cornerback duties, he would play on the boundary in nickel situations.

Seahawks placed CB Tharold Simon (toe) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Simon missed the last two games and wasn't close to returning. He was active in Week 2, but didn't play any snaps in a lost season. The Seahawks needed Simon's roster spot to promote RB Rod Smith with Marshawn Lynch out. 24-year-old Simon is signed through 2016.

Seahawks CB Tharold Simon (shoulder) is sitting out OTAs, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

It's unclear if Simon ever went under the knife, but the Seahawks appear confident that he'll be ready for camp. Free-agent addition Cary Williams, not Simon, is penciled in as a starter opposite Richard Sherman.

Seahawks CB Tharold Simon could need offseason shoulder surgery.

Simon will likely miss the majority of OTAs if he requires surgery, and should be considered questionable for training camp. With RCB Byron Maxwell possibly leaving in free agency and Jeremy Lane coming off a torn ACL, Marcus Burley is Seattle's only healthy corner behind Richard Sherman.

Seahawks CB Tharold Simon is expected have "minor" knee surgery this week.

ESPN 710 Seattle reports Seahawks CB Tharold Simon has "generated more buzz than any player over the past month."

With Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner gone, Simon is competing for Seattle's nickel corner job. Third-year CB Jeremy Lane and Phillip Adams are also in the mix. If Simon wins the job, Byron Maxwell would likely move inside in sub-packages. Simon is a potential breakout candidate in Seattle's Cover-3. He spent 2013 sidelined with a foot injury.

The Seattle Times' Jayson Jenks said second-year CB Tharold Simon had "the best day of any player" at Seahawks OTAs Thursday.

6-foot-3 Simon went high to pick off two passes and earned praise from Richard Sherman when he forced a running play back inside. Simon spent all of 2013 sidelined with a foot injury, but he has been pegged as a player ready to step up this season. He will compete for outside corner duties in Seattle's sub-packages.
