Bears' Dion Sims: Officially sent packing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims was officially released by the Bears on Thursday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

This was the clear way to go for Chicago given the $6 million in cap relief Sims' release provides -- not to mention the significantly underwhelming return on investment he provided when healthy. There could be a modest market for his services somewhere out there this offseason for teams in need of blocking from the tight end position.

Dion Sims: Release imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears intend to release Sims in the near future, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

This is an obvious decision since Sims' release saves Chicago $6 million in cap space with less than $400,000 in dead money. After an unproductive 2018 campaign in which he caught just two of four targets for nine yards in eight games, Sims probably won't be in store for a very lucrative contract this offseason. His aptitude as a blocker might be enough for him to garner interest somewhere else as a reserve tight end.

Bears' Dion Sims: Unproductive in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (concussion) was placed on injured reserve on November 17 and ended the season with two catches for nine yards in eight games played.

Sims primarily served as the Bears' blocking tight end while Trey Burton did most of the work as a receiver. Sims will go into the last year of his contract in 2019, but he could struggle to overtake Adam Shaheen as the Bears' second tight end.

Bears' Dion Sims: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed Sims (concussion) on injured reserve Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Sims was set to miss his second straight game with a concussion, and it looks like the Bears did not think he was close to returning. He played a limited role for the team, so his absence is not expected to impact the offense in any way.

Bears' Dion Sims: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sims (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 11's contest against the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sims will miss his second-straight game with this concussion. The Michigan State product was unable to practice in any capacity this week. When Sims was playing, his role was very limited. Sims hasn't logged more than 20 offensive snaps in four games and hasn't been targeted in three.
