Simms was the single most dependable player for DC last year. He played in 45 games and had more minutes on the pitch than any other DC United player. A solid holding midfielder that may very well grow into one of the best in that position in MLS.
No terms were released, but I wouldn't be suprised to see that Simms got a big fat raise (he was making about $52,000 last year). I would like to see Simms getting a little more inovlved in the attack. I don't need a lot of goals from him, but I would like to see some assists.
This is good news for DC United. With the injuries that ravaged the squad last year, I think Tommy Soehn liked the feeling of knowing that Simms was always healthy and always ready to go. No, he is not a flashy player, but sometimes consistency can trump flashiness.
