Increased interest in Simms



Keep an on Monday on former Bucs quarterback Chris Simms.

He could soon find a landing spot with all the injuries suffered by quarterbacks on Sunday. According to various reports, Simms is being linked to the Patriots, Chiefs and Titans, all of whom saw their quarterbacks sustain injuries on Sunday.

One reason Simms is more attractive to teams this week: Veterans' salaries aren't guaranteed after Week 1, meaning there won't be as much financial risk in signing him. If he is released later in the season, a team would not owe him the balance of his annual salary. Had he signed last week, Simms would have been entitled to such a benefit by virtue of his active roster status on opening day.
