The team announced it released Sims on Thursday.
Arizona signed the nomadic linebacker in June in the wake of Daryl Washington's season-long suspension. However, the veteran wasn't going to beat out Kevin Minter, Larry Foote, Lorenzo Alexander or Kenny Demens, so the team cut ties.
Last season, the former first-round pick was downright dreadful in 12 games -- six as a starter -- with the Cowboys. Pro Football Focus ranked Sims 116 out of a possible 125 inside linebackers.
The Cardinals did the 29-year-old vet a favor by releasing him early in the process, but given his past film, we find it hard to believe Sims will find a steady football job until a team becomes desperate due to injuries.
