Charles Sims Waived With An Injury Settlement, Could Return

August 30th, 2018

The Bucs now have just one remaining member of their 2014 draft class.

Blasted in the knee on special teams a couple of weeks ago, running back Charles Sims, a third-round pick in 2014, was waived today with an injury settlement.

In simple terms, the Bucs cut Sims a check for a percentage of his $1 million salary for 2018, but Sims is free to negotiate with another team now and sign.

As Joe understands the rule, three weeks after the number of game weeks for which the Bucs paid Sims, he would be allowed to re-sign with the Bucs. So if Sims settled for four weeks pay, then he could sign with Tampa Bay three weeks after that.

    Interesting rule.

    Considering DD is back on the roster (for now) it would not surprise me if the Bucs added him back down the road, if he doesn’t sign somewhere else first.

    Sims had one good year and regressed after that. He can catch but can’t run. Time to move on. I hope he catches on with a new team, he’s not a bad guy, just a bad pick. We knew the team needed a Guard and so a Guard was not picked. So Bucs like. I can’t remember the names on the board, so maybe all of them disappointed too, I don’t know, but, oh well.

    wish him nothing but good health, but I am surprised he lasted this long on the bucs, a one trick pony who wasn’t even to good at his one trick.

    I think he’s gonna make a late season attempt to come back. Not sure extent of his knee injury but he’s definitely a dynamic play maker… on occasion.

    Best of luck Charles. I would venture to guess he’s a pretty classy pro..
    General rule of mine , to support all who wore our jersey and rep the Bay Area. Yes , There have been exceptions to this rule.

    Charles Sims thank you for your contribution to previous Bucs teams but this is a team with heart and grit so please take any leftover finesse players with you on your way out. Don’t let Peyton Barber’s foot kick you in the A$$ on the way out.

    Stay classy, Bucs fans.

  8. Ndog Says:

    This is the time to move on for good as there is nothing that he is better at than any of the current backs on the roster. Nice guy sorry he got hurt but please move on for good.

    One guy left out of that draft… enough said. Wonder why we’re a 5 win team.

    So it is conceivable that he could come back earlier than if he had stayed on IR?

  11. BuccoDav Says:

    I wish him the best of luck. I believe he gave his best. Maybe a new gig on Dancing with the Stars would better suit him.

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Hopefully he’s back – I think he’s going to be missed.

  13. gp Says:

    He filled a niche, not sure if he would fit in with the new scheme, but i would’nt call him a dissapointment by any means

  14. Bucsfanman Says:

    I never understood the re-signing in the 1st place. Best wishes Charles!
    We’ll miss the Saturday Night Fever impersonations!

    Why even mention having him back !!!! What to run a screenplay once a game, cmon Buc fans . Probably same ones want him back but ask for 93 to be cut. Why waste a roster spot on a RB who can’t gain yards (proven) , and only good for one play. Think people

  16. IMBUC Says:

    BYE FELICIA!!! Worst back on the team. Glad an injury made the choice for Koetter or he would have kept him around (again).

  17. teacherman777 Says:

    We drafted him over Devonte Freeman.

    Enough said.
