Cowboys Re-sign LB Ernie Sims

Sims joined Dallas last year in the wake of Sean Lee's season-ending toe injury



    According to executive vice president Stephen Jones, the Dallas Cowboys are down to “five figures” in cap space after re-signing veteran linebacker Ernie Sims with a one-year deal on Sunday.

    Sims figures to see a decent amount of playing time in 2013 as the Cowboys implement the 4-3 system under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, but Jones seems to believe that Wake Forest product Kyle Wilber--entering his second year in the league--will win the starting job alongside Sean Lee and Bruce Carter.

    Sims was picked up “off the street,” so to speak, by an injury-ravaged Cowboys team in 2012. He ended up with 42 tackles, a sack and three quarterback pressures. 2013 will be Sims’ eighth year in the NFL.
