Sims to get tryout with Tampa Bay 

By Ken Sugiura

Former Georgia Tech B-back David Sims has received an offer to try out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at their rookie minicamp that begins Friday. It is different than signing as an undrafted free agent, in which players are given NFL contracts. Sims, a three-year starter who  ran for 2,252 yards in his career, will be competing with other tryout players for a contract offer.

Former Tech A-back Orwin Smith also tried out with Tampa Bay last year before being signed to the Green Bay Packers practice squad. He was signed to the offseason roster after the season.

Sims will be there with former Tech defensive tackle Euclid Cummings, who signed with the team as an undrafted free agent.

I hope Sims gets signed and gets a chance.  He was one of my favorite players.  I heard he only had one carry that lost yeardage last year.  That  is an incredible feat.

I wonder if the next head coach will retain him after this season.

That is a nice feat and he represented Tech well. I just wasnt a huge fan. Laskey IMO will be an upgrade. Sucks losing Custis but that opens a spot for a big tim RB recruit to come in an get SIGNIFICANT carries next year.

@jackeee  So far I have seen NO CONFIRMATION that this is anything more than a rumor.  The Falcons have announced the signing of 20 UDFA's, and Godhigh isn't among them.

Hate to tell you, bud, but Johnson will be at Tech in 2015, because it would be stupid to change coaches before the killer schedule we have that year.  He would have to lose every game this year to be fired before 2015, and that's not going to happen.  Deal with it

I dunno.  Hope we win 9 or 10 games and it isn't an issue.  But....

You're correct.  Next season's schedule is much more difficult than this years.

If I'm our AD and Johnson only wins 6 or 7 games this year, he isn't going to do any better in 2015.  So I make the coaching change and move on.

You better keep him away from the cheerleaders.  He has a thing for co-eds, you know.  Did they keep any of Damon Evans' red panties for him to use?

@bigmacondawg  Richt is the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ and now Pruitt is the Leader of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse after 1 season of skirt chasing at FSU. 

I wouldn't bet your mortgage on Pruitt and UGa being in Championship Game anytime soon.

@bigmacondawg  That guy with one year of coaching experience at a school loaded with defensive talent? Yeah, no risk there at all.
