When I heard that the Eagles' newest defensive addition acquired from the Cleveland Browns, safety David Sims, was a trash man at one point on his journey to the NFL, I couldn't help but think of the cinematic classic starring Tony Danza, "The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenom."

Sadly, Sims doesn't appear to have any work experience as a place kicker.

But that doesn't make Sims' journey any less remarkable. John Gonzalez caught up with Sims about his other prior work experience:

“Day-to-day, I was working with garbage,” Sims recalled. “I would go
house-to-house and dump the trash … it’s pretty humbling. It makes you
think ‘I’m not going to do this for the rest of my life. I’ve got to
have a change.’”

Whether Sims turns out to be an adequate late depth pickup remains to be seen. Seems like a guy worth pulling for though.
