There are other teams interested in Simms, but Tampa Bay will eventually have to figure out which team is willing to offer it the best deal. Since most teams know Tampa Bay has no use for Simms, and will eventually cut him, the odds of any organization trading anything substantial to the Bucs for him are very slim.
Simms played for the University of Texas and is still popular there, making Dallas a good fit for him. Of course, any city but Tampa is a good fit for Simms at this point.
