Bills' Matt Simms: 'I wasn't getting my fair share' of reps with Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Bills quarterback Matt Simms confirmed Wednesday that he asked for his release from the Jets after not receiving enough practice time in OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

"You never want to quit a job when you don’t really know whether there is a job waiting for you," Simms said Wednesday, "But at the same time, I wasn’t happy, and you have to do what makes you happy, so I was willing to take that chance to be happy. I felt like I wasn’t getting my fair share of the reps and work. Today -- even though it was my first day -- I got more work today than I did my last week with the Jets. Yeah, it was risky, but in the end it paid off and I’m happy to be here now."

Coach Rex Ryan responded cautiously when asked if Simms would be added to a starting-quarterback competition that already involves three players.

"It is what it is right now, three guys are going to be working at it, they’re splitting the reps," Ryan said. "But don’t kid yourself. Matt will be given opportunities. Is he going to get as many as the top three guys? Probably not, but one thing about Matt, is I know he will take advantage of the opportunities he gets, and I’m not saying he can’t make this team."


QB Shuffle: Bills cut Jeff Tuel, claim Matt Simms off waivers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Bills coach Rex Ryan didn't pass up the chance to reunite with one of his former quarterbacks, by cutting Jeff Tuel and claiming the former Jets passer Matt Simms off waivers on Friday, per nfl.com.

Tuel was a favorite of former Bills coach Doug Marrone, but with Ryan now the head man in charge his fate was doomed.

Simms, who played in just four games while with the Jets, will still be a long-shot to make the team because of the three-man competition at the quarterback spot already brewing between Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel.


Bills awarded waiver claim for QB Matt Simms


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) The quarterback situation in Buffalo has gotten a little more complicated on Friday. The Bills were awarded their waiver claim on QB Matt Simms, who was released by the Jets on Thursday, according to the team's official website. 

Simms has played just four games and has completed 19 of 39 passes for 195 yards, with a touchdown and an interception in his career.


Report: QB Matt Simms asked for release from Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Third-year quarterback Matt Simms asked for his release from the Jets on Thursday, a source close to the situation told The Record.

Simms, who had no comment when reached, apparently saw little future with that team when it selected Bryce Petty in the draft. He wanted to test the free agent market before mandatory minicamps began in June. If he clears waivers, he can sign with any team.

The 26-year-old Simms has played in just four career games with a poor 48.7 completion rate.


Jets announce release of quarterback Matt Simms


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) The Jets released quarterback Matt Simms, the team announced on Thursday.

Simms, who was buried in the depth chart with the Jets, has played in four career games, completing 19 of 39 passes for 195 yards a touchdown and an interception.


Todd Bowles: Jets planning to add another quarterback


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Jets coach Todd Bowles is a fan of competition. 

Instead of being content with quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms competing for the starting job, Bowles, via the Newark Star-Ledger, said the team has plans to add a fourth signal caller to the mix

Bowles said this on a conference call with season-ticket holders. 

"Ryan's going to compete, as well as Geno's going to compete," Bowles said. "And we hope to add somebody else to help compete with that along with Simms."

That could mean many things, such as adding a veteran quarterback, a mid-to-late-rounder or someone looking to get back in the league. Or perhaps it's a sign the Jets want to take a quarterback — possibly Marcus Mariota — with the sixth overall pick if the opportunity arises. 


Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be ready for training camp


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/19/2015) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's coming back from a broken leg, said he'll be limited in OTAs but fully ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Geno Smith and Matt Simms will get more reps in OTAs, the report added.

Fitzpatrick is expected to start for the Jets after posting a 95.3 passer rating in 12 games with the Texans last season.


Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick favored to start for Jets


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) New Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to win the starting job, reports Metro New York. The Jets acquired Fitzpatrick from the Texans for a conditional 2016 seventh-round draft pick.

As the roster currently stands, Fitzpatrick, 32, will have to beat out Geno Smith and Matt Simms. In 12 games with Houston last year, Fitzpatrick completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 2,483 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

“He's head and shoulders the best quarterback on this roster and he wasn't brought in to be the backup or be a mentor,” the source said. “He was brought in to compete and earn that starting job and he's expected to do that.”

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters on Monday that Geno Smith's shoulder injury isn't expected to be serious moving forward. However, he admitted that Smith isn't 100 percent healthy and if he's not available to backup Michael Vick against the Chiefs in Week 9, then the team will likely promote Matt Simms from the practice squad to serve as the No. 2 quarterback, according to the New York Daily News.

The recently benched quarterback injured his shoulder while making a tackle on his third interception of the afternoon against the Bills in Week 8. He completed only 2 of 8 pass attempts for 5 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions before he was replaced by Vick after four drives.

Matt Simms flops in relief performance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Given the chance to step into the quarterback role for the second half of Sunday's 23-3 loss to the Dolphins in Week 13, Jets backup Matt Simms didn't exactly impress. Simms completed just half of his passes and led the team on a single scoring drive in the loss.

Simms came out of the locker room as the quarterback at the start of the second half with the Jets down 6-0, after Geno Smith completed just 4 of 10 passes with an interception. Simms wasn't much better himself, completing 9 of 18 passes for 79 yards and a pick of his own.

Simms obviously has a chance to start in Week 14 against the Raiders, but coach Rex Ryan was not ready to name a starter after the game. A decision will be made at some point during the week. 


Matt Simms plays well in blowout loss Week 11


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Jets backup quarterback Matt Simms received some mop-up duty during a 37-14 loss Week 11 at Buffalo. Simms entered the game in the fourth quarter after starter Geno Smith turned the ball over four times (three interceptions).

Simms got off to a great start, completing 3 of 3 passes for 48 yards on his first drive, which ended with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Cumberland. 

Simms came close to a few other touchdowns passes, targeting Stephen Hill on 5- and 11-yard touchdown passes and David Nelson on a 17-yard touchdown pass, but all three attempts fell incomplete. Simms finished 4 of 6 for 60 yards.

After the game, coach Rex Ryan announced Smith would remain the starting quarterback heading into Week 12 at Baltimore.


Several do little for Jets in defeat to Bengals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) When your backup quarterback is your leading rusher, you know you've had a bad game. But that was the sad reality for the Jets in Cincinnati on Sunday, when Matt Simms paced the team with 35 yards on three attempts. Simms was 3 of 7 passing for 17 yards.

Simms was one of several meager contributors in the 49-9 loss. Among the others was running back Alex Green, who added 20 yards on three carries and one reception for 7 yards.

Also catching passes were tight ends Zach Sudfeld (2-10) and Jeff Cumberland (1-9). Sudfeld was a surprise co-starter at that position.
