Titans part ways with ex-Patriots John Simon, Cassh Maluia

The NFL's final cutdowns have begun, and two former New England Patriots defenders are out of jobs in Tennessee.

The Titans released outside linebacker/defensive end John Simon and linebacker Cassh Maluia on Sunday amid several roster moves following their final preseason game Saturday.

Simon spent three years in New England from 2018 to 2020 and started all 16 games for the Patriots last season, tallying two sacks, four tackles for loss, four quarterback hits and three passes defensed. New England let Simon walk in free agency, though, bringing in free agents Matthew Judon and Henry Anderson to fill his spot on the right side of the defensive line.
