Seahawks to sign DT Ryan Sims

The Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Kansas City and Tampa Bay defensive tackle Ryan Sims. The No. 6 overall pick of the 2002 draft, Sims started all 16 games in 2009 for the Bucs, but lost his starting job last season and was released in November.

It remains to be seen how exactly the 31-year-old Sims will fit into the Seahawks' line, but defensive line depth was a need coming into free agency for Seattle. Sims should be able to learn the defense quickly, as defensive coordinator Gus Bradley spent three years in Tampa prior to coming to Seattle, and brought a similar defense to the Seahawks.
