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.
