Seattle Seahawks Trading Guard Rob Sims To The Bears?

Published on March 27, 2010 by     

The Bears have talked to the Seattle Seahawks about acquiring guard Rob Sims, a restricted free agent.

But, contrary to a report in the Chicago Tribune, the  Seattle Seahawks are not at all interested in trading Sims for defensive end Alex Brown, according to two sources close to the situation.

The Bears are hoping to trade Brown, who is due to make $5 million in 2010 and to turn 31 this summer, and the Seattle Seahawks have a need for a pass rusher, especially after trading Darryl Tapp to the  Eagles and losing Cory Redding in free agency.

But the Seattle Seahawks are not interested in Brown at $5 million a season.

The Seahawks are believed to be far more interested in the draft pick.

Meanwhile, the Bears would only need to give the Seahawks a fourth-round pick if they sign Sims to an offer sheet. Sims is big and athletic, which is what new Bears offensive line coach Mike Tice likes, and he has 34 NFL starts under his belt.

According to one source, Sims is deemed expendable because new offensive line coach Alex Gibbs is more inclined to work with players with whom he’s more familiar.

But Sims has been a solid player for the Seahawks, especially given that he’s had different offensive line coaches in each of his four NFL seasons. The 26-year-old Sims may revel in working with Tice, one of the most respected offensive line coaches in the NFL.
