Cornerback Tharold Simon will stay within the NFC West.
The cornerback will head south of Seattle to the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona claim Simon off waivers on Wednesday. He was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday.
Simon has been battling various injuries since he entered the league as a fifth-round pick in 2013. The 6-foot-3 corner has 13 tackles and 1 interception in his first three seasons all with the Seahawks. He started in five games for Seattle.
To make room for Simon, the Cardinals have waived-injured linebacker Lamar Louis. Louis currently has a quad injury.
The Cardinals have been looking to acquire cornerbacks since the offseason. Arizona traded for Marcus Cooper on Sept. 2 after the team lost CB Mike Jenkins for the year with an ACL injury and with CB Justin Bethel being unsteady with a foot injury.
Bruce Arians and company haven’t been pleased with the corner position opposite Patrick Peterson. Brandon Williams, who started Week 1, was exposed by the New England Patriots numerous times. Arizona’s defense gave up 363 total yards, including 257 yards through the air to a Patriots team missing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
The team is hoping Simon can step in right away given Arizona’s lack of cornerback help.
