Falcons Sign QB Simms, Waive WR Scantling


Today the Falcons signed quarterback Matt Simms. To make room for the signing, the team waived wide receiver Garrett Scantling.

Simms was originally signed by the New York Jets as a college free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft. He has spent the last two seasons as a member of the Falcons practice squad.

Scantling is a three-time SEC Indoor Heptathlon champion (2013, 2015 & 2016). He was named to the first-team Indoor All-America Heptathlon team three times during his collegiate career (2013, 2015 & 2016).
