It Ain’t All Politics: The Former Broncos Edition
When Chris Simms was pushed into duty last year when Orton was injured, I was a supporter. I thought it was a great opportunity for him to showcase himself to the league and either earn his backup spot outright or let him catch on with another team. Instead he played one of the worst--well, probably the worst--game of his professional career.
While I like Simms, the man, Simms the player looked to be done.
Which is why this is such a surprise:
Free agent quarterback Chris Simms has reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The idea that he might be a safe back-up for any quarterback--the kind of guy you could rely on to step in and save a game at just a moment’s notice--is astonishing. I hope he does well and I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think the man has much game left in him.
