When the Patriots picked up John Simon after he was released by the Colts in September, no one thought much of the move.

It turned out to be a huge one for the Pats, who are set to re-sign the defensive end today, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. As a situational pass rusher, Simon recorded 17 tackles and two sacks.
