Last summer, there were whispers that Sims would miss the Bucs’ final cut coming out of camp, even though starter Doug Martin was suspended for the start of the 2017 season. Sims stayed on the roster, but he did not see a ton of carries. Appearing in all 16 games, Sims totaled just 21 rushing attempts for 95 yards. He did add 35 catches for 249 yards and one score, however.
Given that Sims had less rushing yards than Jameis Winston – who isn’t exactly fleet-footed – he might not have a huge rule in store in 2018. Last year’s leading rusher, Peyton Barber, is back in the fold and so is Jacquizz Rodgers. The Bucs may also bolster the RB depth chart in this week’s draft.
