Gruden is keeping him on the roster out of spite.
The Cowboys remain interested in trading for QB Chris Simms if the Bucs will lower their asking price of a midround draft pick.
The Cowboys are believed to have communicated their interest in May but the Bucs have insisted on a third- or fourth-round pick.
The Cowboys should use any draft picks. The Bucs will have to cut Simms anyway. If the Bears are interested fine, but Simms would be wise to latch onto the Cowboys. He will be better off under Jason Garrett than Ron Turner as far as offensive coordinators go.
