Simms will re-sign to practice squad

Franklin Lakes native Matt Simms, waived by the Jets on Saturday, went unclaimed and will re-sign to the team’s practice squad, according to a league source. Simms went 29-for-49 in three preseason games for 323 yards and one touchdown with no turnovers, but he and the offense were held scoreless in the first half against Philadelphia on Thursday night. Simms won the No. 2 job behind Geno Smith last summer after the season-ending injury to Mark Sanchez, but the signing of Michael Vick in March pushed him further down the depth chart. Because he spent all of last season on the active roster,...

Rex Ryan ensures Michael Vick Gets His Perfect Moment Against the Philadelphia Eagles

Michael Vick didn't expect to play Thursday night in Philadelphia, but he got that chance anyway. One year ago Rex Ryan left Mark Sanchez in a game which would end his Jets career, he would be blasted for that decision on every forum, every blog and every radio station in America. However his touching gesture that allowed Vick his moment should be praised. Vick was the solo captain, and then trotted out for the first snap of the game. After handing the ball off, the Jets called a time-out while withdrawing Vick from the game. He slowly walked off the field waving to the crowd as the...

Vick surprised by quick outing vs. Eagles

PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Vick's homecoming was short, but sweet. Vick served as the New York Jets' lone captain for their preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. He then started the game at quarterback, but was removed after just one play. Following a first-down handoff to Daryl Richardson, Jets coach Rex Ryan called a timeout and sent third-string QB Matt Simms onto the field. Vick was handed a visor to replace his helmet, and when the fans in half-full Lincoln Financial Field gave him a hearty cheer as he left the field, Vick doffed the visor in thanks.

Michael Vick has come full circle . . . appreciated and appreciative

Michael Vick stood under center one more time at the field where he enjoyed some of his finest moments after resurrecting an NFL career that once seemed at an end. Coming out to a warm ovation from a sparse crowd on hand for the Eagles' final preseason game against the Jets, Vick handed off to backup running back Daryl Richardson. Then he stood there a moment as the Jets called timeout to give him a moment in front of the fans who cheered him during his five-year run in Philly.

Observation Deck: New York Jets

PHILADELPHIA -- The New York Jets held out almost all of their starters, and even many of their backups, in their fourth and final preseason game Thursday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Jets lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, 37-7, in what essentially served as a final audition for the last few spots on the teams' 53-man rosters. (The Eagles sat their starters and backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, the former Jet, as well.) A few takeaways from the game regarding the Jets: Michael Vick started at quarterback, but it was only a cameo appearance.
