NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with QB Chris Simms.
Simms has started 16 games (23 games played) during his six-year NFL career and has thrown for 3,117 yards and 12 touchdowns, while compiling a 7-9 record as a starter. Last year, he signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Denver Broncos and started one game. In 2008, he joined the Titans during the season after being released by Tampa Bay and played limited snaps in the regular season finale against Indianapolis.
