Simms, claimed off waivers by the Bills on Friday, is not expected to be part of the team's three-man race for the starting quarterback role, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coach Rex Ryan, ď(The competition) is what it is right now. Three guys are going to be working at it, theyíre splitting the reps. Donít kid yourself, Matt will get opportunities. Will he get as many as the top three guys, probably not. One thing about Matt, I know heíll take advantage of the opportunities he gets and Iím not saying he canít make this team.Ē
