Sims is drawing interest from several teams, and he could be signed to an offer sheet. He has a fourth-round tender, but a return to Seattle seems unlikely.
The Lions have been one of the most active teams this offseason, in free agency and trade options, including possibly dealing the No. 2 overall draft pick. The team also is considering signing free-agent cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and issuing an offer sheet to restricted free-agent defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove of the New Orleans Saints.
