Veteran CB Tharold Simon, who won a Super Bowl with #Seahawks and spent time last offseason with #Redskins, expected to participate in #Bears minicamp this week on tryout basis. Simon is healthy and has size (6-3, 202) that DC Vic Fangio likes.

Has he already burned through all his NFL earnings?

On a weekend where a former LSU football player was to be celebrated by his hometown for moving on to the NFL, he instead found himself in legal hot water that leaves his draft stock in question.

Ex-LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was arrested Thursday night and charged with public intimidation, resisting arrest and unnecessary noise in his hometown of Eunice, La.


Two days later, the Seattle Seahawks selected Simon in the fifth round with the 138th overall pick.

Lafayette, La., television station KATC reported that Simon's vehicle was blocking a street and he was asked to move it. According to the report, he told the officer, "I own Eunice" and "I'm going to buy these projects and you are going to be mine," before getting into his car.

The report said Simon spun his wheels, "backed up in an aggressive manner" and "turned his radio all the way up." When he was arrested, he reportedly told the officer that "the mayor was on my side" and that the officer would be fired for giving him a ticket.

He was arrested, then later released on bond.

Simon's agent, Peter Schaffer, disputes police accounts and says the officer acted in a "shameful" abuse of power.

Lol at "I own Eunice. I'm going to buy all the projects. You are going to be mine."

He will be stocking shelves at one of the Eunice grocery stores shortly after his playin career is done.

Probably because that's too tall for most corners.

His career may have benefited if he cross trained at safety IMO

I always remember Keith Ortego from Eunice, my dads hometown, who was a WR for the Bears in '85. Went undrafted out of McNeese but made the Bears roster as a free agent and won a Super Bowl with them and was in the video of the Super Bowl Shuffling Crew...

He was way less of a big deal here than he thought he was.
