    John Simon, DE
    After joining the New England Patriots in the middle of last season and finishing the year with a Super Bowl win, Simon is set to hit the free-agent market once again.

    Simon isn’t likely to command a big contract on the open market, but he was a solid role player for the Patriots last season, appearing in 14 total games (regular season and postseason) with three starts and recording 21 total tackles and 2.5 sacks, as well as a pass deflection in the championship-clinching game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Simon told ESPN’s Mike Reiss last month that he would welcome a return to the Patriots.

    “There's been some talks, and things look promising," Simon told ESPN.com. "I'm not going to comment on a lot of that stuff right now, but I enjoyed my time playing for Bill [Belichick]. I think he's a great coach and I'd definitely love to play for him again.”

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday morning that the Patriots are expected to bring back Simon and a deal could be finalized by the end of the day.
