The Jets waive O’Dowd and sign Simms Dan Leberfeld

The Jets have waived former USC center Kris O’Dowd, and have signed former Tennessee quarterback Matt Simms. The announcements were made by Bruce Speight.

Unfortunately for Dowd, he had a myriad of injuries at USC, and they have taken their toll on him.

Simms is a local prospect from Franklin Lakes, N.J., who attended the rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis.
