Simms drawing interest
<Jan. 9> By leading the Buccaneers to a division title, QB Chris Simms has raised his stock enormously. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that at least four teams, including the Lions, Jets and Dolphins, are interested in Simms, who began the season as the backup to Brian Griese.
Simms is a restricted free agent who would require draft pick compensation for any team signing him if the Bucs don't get a long-term deal

Tampa should def. keep him IMO I mean their other option is Griese.... UGH
Now the Jets or Dolphins would be goos fits but who knows if he is just a one year wonder or not??

I like Simms as a QB - he does the simple thing well and seems to stay level headed.

Turnovers killed the Bucs against Washington - and Simms was forced to air it out a little more than he wanted - his 1st INT was a tipped ball which is not really the fault of the QB.

I think he still learning, but I got a good feeling from watching him play his first few games - he always seems focussed and never shellshocked.

The Patriots laid some heavy hits on him this year - but he kept getting to his feet ready to play another down and get hit again if necessary.

The Bucs would be crazy to get rid of him - there is a real shortage of quality QBs around the league as a whole.

maybe he should go to the lions so he can hook up with his former college teammate roy williams. i may not like simms but he is a huge upgrade over harrington and garcia

Griese is better than Simms, and they also have Rattay. draft a late QB, if you have nothing else to do, and let Simms go.
