The Buccaneers decided to waive Sims on Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Sims was never considered a serious threat to land on the final roster, so this move was more of a formality as the team tries to trim its depth chart before final cuts. The 25-year-old will presumably clear waivers and look for an opportunity with another team.
Sims signed a future contract with the Buccaneers on Monday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Sims joined the Buccaneers practice squad a week ago and will now have an opportunity to spend the offseason with the team. However, the former Alabama quarterback signed with the team as a running back so he'll compete for a spot in the team's backfield over the next several months.
Former Alabama quarterback Blake Sims is reportedly set to try out for the Redskins this week as a running back/wide receiver, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Sims went undrafted after throwing for 3,487 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2014 for the Crimson Tide. He also had 83 carries for 2350 yards with seven rushing touchdowns.
