Matt Simms renegotiates contract, signed through 2014

BY SETH WALDER

Jets backup quarterback Matt Simms was expected to be a free agent this offseason but the young signal caller has renegotiated his contract to extend through 2014, according to a person familiar with the situation. 

Simms is scheduled to have a salary of $495,000 in 2014, according to league records. The renegotiation may have occurred as early as the regular season. He signed a one-year deal with the team a year ago and made the squad after Greg McElroy suffered a preseason injury and Simms put together a strong training camp. 

With Simms locked down for next season, the Jets technically have three quarterbacks scheduled to be on their roster: Geno Smith, Simms and Mark Sanchez. Sanchez, however, is not expected to return to Gang Green.

In his stead, the Jets will likely add at least one quarterback. 

At his season-ending press conference, GM John Idzik admitted, “We’ll look at quarterbacks, yes we’ll look at quarterbacks.”

It would make sense for the Jets to add another QB, either through free agency or the draft, that could at least compete with Smith for the starting job in next year’s training camp.

Meh. It's not for much so they can cut him whenever they want, which is hopefully when they bring in some QBs who can actually play.

Perfectly fine signing.  Not every one needs to be a home run.

Great. Now they can just announce the re-structuring of Sanchez and Geno's extension, and we can all start on that 30 pack.

Glad he's back.  I want him to have a chance to win the job next year though.

Had a chance this year and was not good. He's not good. Hopefully the Jets will get a legit QB in here and draft someone and Simms will be back living with his parents.

Which game he was not good? He
Nearly knocked off Geno if it wasn't for Idzik's insistence.

Tough call given who's expected to be available. Vick would automatically bring a qb controversy, josh Freeman is as bad as Mark Sanchez, and Chad Henne just isn't that good.

That leaves former starters-turned journeymen backups Colt McCoy, Shaun Hill, Brady Quinn, etc.

By the way, mark my words, Sanchez is going to be a backup for the Pats next season.

I remember 3. 16/31, 150+ yards, 1td, 1 int. not bad considering who he was backing up.

So, what is wrong with a QB controversey if they bring Vick in? And what would be the contoversey? Vick would be the starter hands down, No controversey that I can see.

  Quinn was already here and couldnt even beat out Simms for backup.

  Vick would be the starter for a few games, then get hurt, and Geno is back in the saddle and you just wasted cap space on another QB who never stayed healthy when he was young.   Plus there are a lot of people who hate the guy who aren't even into football.   The Jets don't really need to become a circus again that has nothing to do with football.

Best news of the day. Now there's absolutely zero way anyone can want to keep Mark on, we now have our backup QB. Two birds, one stone.

Barely 50% completions and a garbage touchdown in Buffalo. Sweet. Super Bowl here we come.

On what planet should the Jets go into the season with Simms as the #2? Have we learned nothing from the Sanchez era as to where this team needs a legit backup when the starter will inevitably fail?

The first half of your argument, I am willing to listen to. That is that Vick has trouble staying healthy. Thats a legitimate concern and a risk I am willing to take given his famililarity with Marty. The circus crap is long gone with Mike Vick. He's just another FA QB looking for a job, nothing more, nothing less. I would sign him in a heartbeat, and pair him with Marty and let Geno man the clipboard.
