Pat Sims re-signs, likely completes pre-draft rotation

Pat Sims battles through a hold against the Steelers in 2011. (

In what has become a flurry of activity along the defensive front, the Cincinnati Bengals have brought back defensive tackle Pat Sims according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The fifth-year run-stuffing specialist out of Auburn has 121 tackles and five sacks in his career. He will again join Domata Peko and Geno Atkins to form one of the league’s strongest 1-2-3 punches at defensive tackle.

Sims becomes the only free agent out of the d-line rotation to re-sign with the team. Last week, ends Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene  departed for Cleveland and New England respectively. They team attempted to replace both Friday with former first-round picks Derrick Harvey and Jamaal Anderson.

Drafting a lineman (or two) is always an option but they appear to be set along the front four until April 26 rolls around.
