Cardinals claim ex-Seahawks CB Simon on waivers

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.
