According to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals defensive tackle Pat Sims has agreed to terms with the team Saturday. Since being drafted in the third-round of the 2008 NFL draft, Sims has quietly grown into a good run stopper within Cincinnati's rotation on the defensive line.

Sims left the game early against the Cleveland Browns on November 27 with an ankle injury. Though not severe to keep him out of practice, Sims' season eventually ended after he suffered a second ankle injury during a December 1 practice that eventually placed him on Injured Reserve.

In the ten games prior to his injury against the Cleveland Browns in which Sims played 279 defensive snaps, the Cincinnati Bengals rush defense allowed only 88.6 yards rushing per game and a 3.4 yard/rush average. Including the game in which he suffered his first ankle injury, the Bengals rush defense finished the season by allowing 131.5 yards rushing per game, not including Cincinnati's playoff lost to the Houston Texans. During that six-game stretch the Bengals rush defense allowed a 4.8 yard/rush average.
