Chris Simms

The writing was on the wall the moment the Broncos traded for Brady Quinn Sunday. Quarterback Chris Simms was released on Monday, the Denver Post reports.

Simms was called to duty once in his one-season career as a Bronco, starting for three series but struggling against the San Diego Chargers before being benched for the injured Kyle Orton.

Finding a backup quarterback — one that could even compete with Orton for the starting job — was one of this offseason’s priorities, and the Broncos fulfilled that with the trade for Quinn. That left no space on the roster for Simms.

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out!

    It's never a good thing when someone loses their job, we as fans forget that often. As Kyle would probably tell you Simms is one of the nicer guys on the team.

    With that said, I think it would be great for Denver to spread a bit of his salary out to some of those RFA's, but they won't (why would they?).

    It's funny that Kyle Orton was just quoted by Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter, “This is going to be my fourth year as a starter and I've never been the highest-paid quarterback on my team.” Well, he was scheduled to be in 2010 and he definitely is now…

    Careful what you wish for kids, best of luck Chris!

    And here it comes, “Quinn should start over Orton” comments. He was brought in as a #2 because Simms threw like #2 and just did not look like he belonged out on the field. Orton is in his second year of THIS offense and can build on last year. More than likely Quinn is here because Orton is not going to get a major contract extension but he is The Guy this year.

    Simms was a good guy but didn't have the talent to back up. He needed to go and I'm much more comfortable with whomever our back up this year.

    and thus concludes Chris Simms' NFL career…

    Mr.Simms you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here. He just is not that good of a QB right now. As soon as the Quinn trade went down, he should of started packing his bags. Try broadcasting it worked for your father.

  • Josh Temple

    Bets that Kyle Shanahan lands him at D.C. in a second or 3rd string role?

    One down one more to go.

    i liked simms character….. he just wasnt the same after that injury.

    Hes shown all the other teams he cant even be a below average backup
