Chris Simms Shakes Off Plea Deal

Tennessee Titans backup QB Chris Simms turned down a plea deal after being accused of driving while high on marijuana in New York City back in July.

A judge then set a March 1st trial date. The charges include a misdemeanor that could send Simms to jail for a year if he's convicted.

Simms denies the police department's claim that he admitted smoking marijuana.
