Adams was claimed off waivers when the Tennessee Titans decided to part ways with him in 2014. This past season he switched from tackle to guard and started two games at left guard before tearing the patellar tendon in his right knee. He played well in his two starts and showed Houston enough to bring him back for another season. Terms of his deal have not yet been released.
Simon is free to negotiate with other teams however, but by placing the tender on him the Texans make the idea of him leaving seem much less likely. Any team signing him would have to surrender a second-round draft pick to Houston.
Simon was originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft and joined the Texans in 2014. He recorded 53 tackles and five sacks in 16 games for Houston, which included eight starts.
