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.
