Matt Simms For Three

New York Jets

Matt Simms has an opportunity tonight to lock down the #3 QB job for the New York Jets.  The son of former Giants great Phil Simms will start the preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Mark Sanchez is out with an injured shoulder, Geno Smith isn’t expected to play and Greg McElroy is hurt as well.

Simms, who played for Don Bosco Prep in NJ, has looked good this preseason.  He has a strong arm and against the Jaguars he was 5 of 5 and looked like he was set to claim the 3rd QB job.   Recently signed Graham Harrell is expected to back up Simms against the Eagles.

The Jets will have to make a decision shortly after the game.  NFL rosters must be trimmed to 53 players by August 31st at 6pm.  Based on his performance tonight, Matt Simms can stake a claim to one of those spots.
