Blake Sims appears to be odd man out in Bucs’ backfield

Buccaneers running back Blake Sims may be out of work this year.

Sims looks like a long shot to make the 53-man roster, according to Buccaneers.com. The team’s website indicates that holdovers Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie fifth-round pick Jeremy McNichols will make the roster, while Sims probably won’t.

UPDATE 1:33 p.m. ET: As a result of a mistake on a Buccaneers.com story, this story initially said running back Charles Sims is on the outside looking in. The Buccaneers.com writer was referring to Blake Sims. The Buccaneers sent PFT a note telling us they had fixed the error and apologizing for the mistake.

    He’s been the odd man out for a while. If you take his pass catching ability away he doesn’t offer any value. I’ve never seen anyone more afraid of taking contact. Another wasted product from west Virginia

    Martin is out the first three games, so Sims will make the team. He is going into his contract year, so it is probably the Bucs just trying to motivate him. If the Bucs keep him, he ends up in the compensatory picks compensation if they don’t sign him next year

    Don’t dump him so quick. Eventually the League will come down on the “Adderall Addict” and suspend him for most if not the whole year. The Bucs will probably need Sims.

    I guess it’s no surprise since I have no clue who Blake Simms is. Charles Simms will probably stick around as a 3rd down back. Also keep in mind that Doug Martin is not available for the 1st 3 games. So someone will occupy his spot for the first 3 games.

    Did the Bucs also email you to let you know you’re using the 1997 helmet in your photo again?
