David Sims is the newest addition to the Eagles' roster. The safety spent time with the Giants, Bucaneers and Browns last season, but was never active for a game. Here's what Eagles general Howie Roseman said about Sims:
"Athletic, solid tackler, can play on special teams. He's a guy we've been following throughout the course of the preseason. We played the Browns in the preseason, obviously scouted him a lot before we played that game and happy to acquire him today."
"Right now, he'll back up at those safety spots, and we'll hopefully get him up to speed as quickly as possible."
"He can do a little bit of everything. He can cover. He's 5-9 1/2, so I can't tell you he's going to go cover 6-foot-6 tight ends all the time. But he's got good feet, good athletic ability and he's got a good feel for the game."
