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.
