The Bills have released quarterback Matt Simms, according to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News (via Twitter). Earlier this week, coach Rex Ryan said that the odds were “probably stacked against” the quarterback making the 53-man roster.
This summer, some speculated that Simms could knock Matt Cassel from the Bills’ depth chart, but that didn’t turn out to be the case. Now, the Bills’ QB list is pretty much locked in as Tyrod Taylor as the starter with Matt Cassel and E.J. Manuel in support.
Simms, 26, spent the last two seasons with the Jets, appearing in four games and completing 19 of 39 passes during his limited playing time, with a touchdown and an interception. However, they waived him in May at a time when their depth chart at QB seemed rather set and the Bills were quick to claim him.
