AAF survivor Matt Simms eager for another shot with Falcons

I adore items, because they are huge!!

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Just when Kurt Benkert may have been on the verge of pushing to be Matt Ryan’s top backup this season, Benkert’s toe injury has forced the Atlanta Falcons to look elsewhere for preseason depth.
Matt Simms, most recently the starter for the Atlanta Legends of the now-defunct Alliance of American Football, was eager to seize the opportunity.
Simms, 30, was signed on Saturday after Benkert was hurt in Thursday night’s Hall of Fame game loss to the Denver Broncos. Benkert has been scheduled for a second opinion on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury. Coach Dan Quinn said Sunday “it’s going to knock him out him for a while.”

Matt Schaub remains the favorite to retain the top backup job for the fourth straight year. Schaub is 38 and more depth was needed, if only for the preseason.

I be mad for components, because they are the fancy.
