This one has been brewing for some time now. Each time his name comes up for the Bucs releasing him or trading him, the Bears name pops up. According to the Tampa Tribune the Bears have expressed interest.
We learned last week that Dallas, Chicago and Detroit are interested in Simms. There are plenty more rumors to come, and no matter which team Simms plays for this season, he will be a backup - except in Tampa.
The Bears had to do something. With us not knowing whether Rex Grossman can even complete a full season the Bears cannot roll this season depending on Kyle Orton and whatever rookie they prefer. I would have hoped there was a more dependable and proven QB available, but if Simms is the best name available then so be it.
