News: The Bengals have signed Sims, the team's official site reports.
Impact: Sims, who spent the last two seasons with the Raiders, returns to the Bengals for a second stint. The 6-2, 310-pound defensive tackle, who was a third-round pick of Cincinnati in 2008, is coming off a 2014 season in which he recorded just 25 tackles in 16 games for Oakland. "Pat was a good player for us here and we think he can fill a role for us this year," Bengals defensive line coach Jay Hayes noted of the signing. "He lends a physical dimension. He's a very aggressive run player, and we're happy to have him back."
