Charles Sims Works Out For The Patriots

September 12th, 2018

Bill Belicheat must have thought he was watching Dancing With The Stars.

Joe is just kidding (a little) with that reference to recently-waived running back Charles Sims, the Bucs’ third-round pick in 2014.

Reports from New England media say Sims was with the Patriots for a workout yesterday.

It would be far too typical and fitting if Sims latched on with the Belicheats and thrived. He’d join a long list of Bucs, from superstars like Aqib Talib and Darrelle Revis, to Jonathan Casillas, Tim Wright, Chris Jones and LeGarrette Blount, among others.

Sims was waived injured by the Bucs after taking a shot to the knee early in the Bucs-Titans preseason game last month. Sims, 27, had been having a poor training camp.

    Wait….I thought this dude was injured???? Why didn’t we keep him if he’s ready to play what am I missing?

    @Joe … “Sims, 27, had been having a poor training camp.” Poorer camp than RoJo’s Joe?

  5. unbelievable Says:

    ^ That’s how injury settlements work

    Funny how many Billicheat gets so much production out of so many ex-bucs

  6. unbelievable Says:

    ^ whoops, one too many “many”s

  7. JimmyJack Says:

    BucEmUp I think what your missing is that the Bucs liked Shawn Wilson’s skillset more then Sims.

  8. jjbucfan Says:

    So glad he is no longer a Buc. I would bet if he makes the Pats, he will be successful. Koetter has no idea how to use him. Monken May have figured it out this year, but Koetter had zero clues. Good dude, wish him the best (except when he plays us, of course)

  9. Ugandan Knuckles Says:

    Koetter knew how to use him in 2015, but then suddenly forgot.

  10. BucEmUp Says:

    Jimmy Jack Simms was a former 2nd round pick. Rojo was a NO GO so wth?

    He is going to play well wherever he goes. Too bad Monken didn’t get a chance to call plays while he was here. Reminded me of a young Matt Forte

  11. Conte Piscatelli Says:

    Last I checked the pats need receivers, maybe they are looking to convert him.

  12. Godeep66 Says:

    Non news Joe

    BucEmUp, Sims was a 3rd round pick back in 2014. RoJo was a high 2nd this year, not that Licht should get the benefit of the doubt but you cross your fingers and pray that somehow Ronald Jones learns how to play NFL RB in the next 12 months otherwise add him to the line of Licht busts.

    Also dont forget Dancin’ Charles Sims was taken one round ahead Devonta Freeman in 14.

    Nobody is a bust after one year much less one game.

    I am disappointed in Rojo thus far but just because I was wrong about how he would start his career, that doesnt mean I’m going to go to the extreme the other way and say he is a bust.

    The dude just turned 21, he isn’t even done growing and developing his body. He has one thing you can’t teach, speed.

    I thought the Oline did terrible blocking for him, I mean awful. He got hit in the backfield about half the runs he made.
    When there was a hole he just didn’t see them. Seemed like he was rushing it and trying to force things instead of being patient. I will attribute that to nerves because he was not that guy in college.

    Give him time and I think he will prove to be that game changer. In the mean time, enjoy Peyton Barber being a beast and this young shifty Wilson is nice too.

    As for Simms, watch him be their new Dion Lewis/Shane Vareen type receiving back.
    Go BUCS!!

    Who “effing” cares, it’s Charles Sims… moving on now

  16. Bob in Valrico Says:

    I have been surprised that Koetter stopped using Sims in the passing game.
    We definetely need another back to complement Barber. One problem for
    Sims is we aren’t a very good screen team out of the backfield. Koetter loves that bubble screen to Hump with good reason, but they run it a lot and I hope that
    an opposing defense doesn’t figure it out and jump the route for a Pic6.
    I believe Wilson is showing more than ROJO at this point and should get more
    offensive opportunities.
    Good luck to Sims,hope he gets an opportunity to show what he can do on the field other than be a blocking back.

    Another ex-Buc going to the SB with NE….. I think i have heard this story before.

  18. firethecannons Says:

    Time for new material–I like our stable of backs ok–Barber is strong!–damn that kid has really improved! Shaun Wilson with potential, Rogers good blocking. We do not need Sims–he a reciever–all the teams know it–too obvious and it negates play action. Rojo is a project–yikes!

  19. BurgDweller Says:

    Sims is no Blount and this is why he won’t work out in NE. Before Blount went to NE and playing for the Bucs, he was a proven runner in between the tackles. Sims never proved that his entire time in TB. If he makes the NE team, he will be used exactly as he was used here in TB….a 3rd down specialist back.
