Draft Scout News
12/24/14 - TE Dion Sims made tremendous strides as a receiver this season, and might have cemented a key role for himself next season. Sims, a fourth-round pick last season, was known mostly for his blocking. But with starter Charles Clay slowed by a knee injury, Sims (22 receptions, 269 yards, 2 TDs) showed he could also catch the ball. Miami could be in a good situation at the TE position heading into the offseason
12/02/14 - TE Dion Sims (17 receptions, 216 yards, one touchdown) had two key receptions in Miami's fourth-quarter drive that resulted in their game-winning field goal. He had one for 18 yards and another for 17 yards, the latter coming on third and seven.
Sims, who had four receptions for 58 yards against the Jets, has become a key find the last two weeks as a starter for injured Charles Clay (knee/hamstring). And he has showed quite a bit of growth after posting just six receptions for 32 yards last year as a rookie.
"I think evolved, grown, matured, developed, all those words would describe Dion," offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. "He missed a little bit of time there with a toe injury. Before that, he had started really coming on. We were excited about it. Then he missed a little bit, but as he came back obviously he's just gotten better."
11/24/14 - TE Dion Sims (four receptions, 31 yards) did a nice job filling in for TE Charles Clay both blocking and receiving. Sims isn't as polished as Clay, but he's coming along nicely.
11/11/14 - TE Dion Sims (toe) was limited in Monday's practice. He's missed the last two games.
11/11/14 - TE Dion Sims (toe) participated in Tuesday's practice. Sims, a key in the run blocking game, hasn't played the last two weeks.
