Simmons, like Starks, is a backup and not a starter. He's too damn soft and gets destroyed by the more competant to average DT's. The Front Office dropped the ball on his re-signing.
Agreed - IMO the front office hit the panic button when the Faneca negotiations blew up, had money to spend on the O-line this season, and had the options of spending it on Starks
or Simmons. So Simmons won the lottery
