This hasn’t happened yet, but I can see happening very soon.
The Buccaneers QB Chris Simms will likely be trades and the Ravens are the team that needs a QB.
Now, that they lost Kyle Boller for almost the whole season or even the whole season, he could compete with rookie Joe Flacco from Deleware and Troy Smith.
Simms thought he might have been released yesterday, but the Bucs cut Linebacker Antoine Cash, CB Sammy Davis, safety Donte Nicholson and wide receiver Paris Warren.
They still have 75 players on their roster and they have to cut that number down to 53 by saturday.
Simms said he guarntees he will be cut or traded by then.
He doesn’t want to be in Tampa because he knows the depth in front of him and that is why Baltimore suits him better than any other team in the league.
Simms had Brian Griese, Jeff Garcia, and Luke McCown in front of him and rookie Josh Johnson.
The Bears, Texans, Cowboys, Titans are all teams considering picking Simms up, but I don’t see those teams actually making that move.
Simms was the starter for the Bucs in 2006, until he went down for the that season and the 2007 season with a ruptured spleen.
David Dorsey of the Ft. Myers News Press asked Simms a few questions.
Firstly he asked him if he received enough playing this preseason and Simms said”It just didn’t work out.”
Simms went 10 of 14 for 84 yards this preseason for the Bucs.
Simms told Dorsey that he knew the other 21 teams’ depth charts, just so he knows where he would fit in with those teams.
“It’s somewhat my job to know that kind of stuff,” Simms said about knowing the other 31 teams’ depth charts. “We’re all competitors. We like to know what’s going on out there.”
Dorsey finally asked him, where he sees himself going.
Simms said “You know me”, “I’d love to answer your questions, but I have no answers. I really don’t.”
Simms doesn’t know it yet, but he could be in Purple and Black before he knows it.
Simms would be a nice fit for a team that hasn’t had a real quarterback, since I guess Trent Dilfer, since Dilfer took them to the Super Bowl.
