Simms Released; Three QBs Remain on Roster

Posted Mar 15, 2010

The Broncos on Monday announced that quarterback Chris Simms has been released. The move leaves the team with three quarterbacks on the roster after the acquisition of Brady Quinn on Sunday.

Simms


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the wake of Sunday's acquisition of quarterback Brady Quinn, the Broncos have released Chris Simms.

Simms saw time in three games in 2009, the first of which came against Washington in Week 10. He played the entire second half after Kyle Orton injured his ankle on the last play of the first half. Simms completed 3-of-13 passes for 13 yards and an interception in the loss.

He started the ensuing game against San Diego, completing 2-of-4 passes for 10 yards and fumbling once before Orton entered the contest. In his third appearance, he took a knee three times to end a 44-13 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The team now has three quarterbacks on the roster -- Orton, Quinn and second-year pro Tom Brandstater -- as offseason workouts commenced Monday.
