Ernie Sims is heading to Indianapolis.
Sims, the ninth overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, has signed with the Colts.
The Lions drafted Sims and thought he had the potential to become a superstar. But while he started all 16 games in each of his first three seasons, he never became quite the player they thought he would in Detroit.
In 2010 Sims signed with the Eagles and started 15 games. Now he’s expected to earn a starting job with the Colts.
