David Sims DB PHI Aug 31 '12
Eagles acquired S David Sims from the Browns in exchange for a conditional 2013 draft pick.
Undrafted out of Iowa State in 2011, Sims showed both physicality and a nose for the ball in preseason action. He'll pitch in on special teams and back up Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman in Philly.
David Sims DB PHI Aug 20 '12
ESPN Cleveland believes S David Sims could push injured starting FS Usama Young for his job.
Young has been sidelined since August 2, and Sims has shined in his absence, notching interceptions in both of Cleveland's preseason games. "He's challenging, he's physical and he's really made a huge amount of progress in the time we've been together," coach Pat Shurmur said. An undrafted free agent out of Iowa State last season, Sims never cracked a 53-man roster.
