McElroy Released by Jets; Matt Simms Makes 53 man Roster

McElroy Released by Jets; Matt Simms Makes 53 man Roster

All the talk about the Jets has been about the QB position, whether the number 1 and 2 competition between Geno Smith vs. Mark Sanchez, or the 3 and 4 competition Matt Simms and Greg McElroy.

The Jets have settled the latter by releasing Greg McElroy.

mortreport The Jets have released QB Greg McElroy, paving the way for Matt Simms to make the 53-man roster, per sources. 8/31/13 1:57 PM

You had to see this coming.  When you look at the last game Matt Simms had vs. the Eagles and combine that with Greg’s injury, Simms earned his way onto the 53 man roster.  Rex had hinted in yesterday’s presser that he may keep four QBs, but now we know that isn’t the case.

I’m happy for Simms.  Will he be the starter this year though?  That’s easy for me to answer:  NO
