Sims goes to the 49ers

Free-agent offensive tackle Barry Sims has decided to sign with the San Francisco 49ers. A nine-year starter for the Oakland Raiders, Sims had worked out recently for the Ravens, St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots.

Sims chose the 49ers because they offered him the best chance to compete for a starting job. The Ravens are looking to start Jared Gaither at left tackle this season following the recent retirement of Jonathan Ogden.
