Beachum, Simek no longer with Razorback football team

LITTLE ROCK ( - Defensive lineman Jatashun "Big Tex" Beachum and tight end Denton Simek are no longer with Arkansas' football team, Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino said through a team spokesperson Monday.

Both players had made position moves after redshirting as freshmen at Arkansas in 2010. Beachum had worked with the running backs last fall before moving to defensive tackle during the Razorbacks' bowl preparations, while Simek moved from a reserve center to tight end during the spring.

Petrino said earlier Monday Colton Miles-Nash had moved from defensive end to tight end. The number of players at the position is believed to be a reason for Simek's departure.
