Two days before he could have become a free agent, quarterback Chris Simms agreed to a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After Brian Griese’s 2005 season ended due a knee injury, Simms stepped in and guided Tampa Bay to the playoffs. In the team’s opening round loss to Washington, the 25-year son of Phil set team postseason records by completing 25 passes on 38 attempts.

Simms was drafted by the Bucs in 2003. He won six of his 10 starts last year, led the team to the NFC South title and completed 191 of 313 passes for 2,035 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Would he make a solid starting fantasy quarterback? Highly unlikely. Coach Jon Gruden will ask Simms to hand the ball to Cadillac Williams as many times as possible. While QBs aren’t typically high picks anyway, elite players such as Tom Brady should go far ahead of Simms.
