Bills' Matt Simms: 'I wasn't getting my fair share' of reps with Jets
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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.

Report: QB Matt Simms asked for release from Jets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
