Bills claim quarterback Matt Simms off waivers from Jets
The Bills decided to freshen up their four-headed quarterback competition, by grabbing a guy from their own division.
According to Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange, the Bills claimed former Jets quarterback Matt Simms off waivers.
Simms was released yesterday, as the writing was on the wall for him with the Jets when Bryce Petty was drafted. But now he lands with former head coach Rex Ryan and quarterbacks coach David Lee, which can’t hurt his chances.
To make room for Simms on the roster, the Bills got rid of Jeff Tuel, who was rotating among Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel and Tyrod Taylor.
While Simms might not change the bottom line for the Bills, he at least adds more competition at the bottom of the depth chart
