After news broke Tuesday night that Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee was lost for the season due to a toe injury, the Cowboys are moving quickly to add some depth in Lee’s absence by signing free agent Ernie Sims.
Sims played last season with the Indianapolis Colts, appearing in 13 games with four starts and registering 32 tackles. Sims has a lot of speed but is a bit undersized for a linebacker at only 6′”, 225 lbs.
For his career, Sims has 362 tackles, 4.5 sacks and one interception in six seasons with the Lions, Eagles and Colts. He was drafted ninth overall by the Lions in 2006.
