Bucs, QB Simms agree on one-year deal

TAMPA, Fla. (March 1, 2006) -- Quarterback Chris Simms agreed to a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The signing comes two days before Simms would have become a restricted free agent and allows the Bucs to keep the quarterback who started the last 10 games in the 2005 season after Brian Griese went down with a knee injury.

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

In a playoff game against Washington, the 25-year-old Simms set team postseason records by completing 25 passes on 38 attempts.
