Sims reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Sims got the nod with Chase Claypool (toe) out against the Lions on Sunday. He saw five snaps on offense, but he never received a target. Depending on Claypool's availability going forward, Sims will work toward another opportunity with the active roster.
Sims was elevated from Pittsburgh's practice squad Saturday. Sims will provide some depth at wide receiver with Chase Claypool (toe) sidelined Sunday against the Lions. The 24-year-old Sims has 28 NFL appearances under his belt, all with Washington, totaling 61 catches and five touchdowns in those games.
The Steelers signed Sims to their practice squad Monday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. Sims spent the last two seasons in Washington. He appeared in 12 contests and recorded 27 catches for 265 yards and one touchdown. The Steelers only kept five wide receivers on their initial 53-man roster, so Sims will be a likely candidate to get called up during the regular season.
The Bills cut Sims on Tuesday, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Sims linked up with the Bills on Aug. 25, but his tenure with the team has already run dry. After appearing in 28 contests with Washington over the last two seasons, Sims will now need to search for a depth role elsewhere. Over 12 games in 2020, he racked up 27 catches for 265 yards and one touchdown.
Sims signed with the Bills on Wednesday. Sims entered Week 1 of last season as Washington's No. 2 receiver, but he injured his toe in September and was limited to a depth role once he returned. The team then released him Monday, having vastly improved its wideout depth in the offseason. Sims now heads to Buffalo, where Isaiah McKenzie's shoulder injury has the Bills looking for a backup plan to handle return work and gadget plays. Sims is an obvious fit, albeit with some ball-security concerns when it comes to punt returns.
