A report in the St. Petersburg Times says the Dallas Cowboys are still interested in Tampa Bay quarterback Chris Simms.
If the Bucs will lower their demands from a mid-round draft pick. That seems like a steep price to pay for a quarterback who:
1) Hasn’t played since 2006;
2) Is coming out of contract after this season;
3) Is scheduled to earn $2 million this season.
The Bears are monitoring the Simms’ situation but trading for him doesn’t make a lot of sense unless you can secure him into the future. Interested teams and Simms alike are both hoping he’s released. Tampa Bay has five QB’s on its roster.
