Jets waive G Hicks; tryout for QB Simms
By Rich Cimini
In our latest episode of "Tuesdays with Mikey" ...
The Jets waived G Hayworth Hicks, who spent three weeks on the 53-man roster but didn't dress for a single game. GM Mike Tannenbaum, known for his bottom-of-the-roster tweaking, signed Hicks on Nov. 7 from the Colts' practice squad.
On Tuesday, the Jets worked out 15 players, including WR Mardy Gilyard, QB Matt Simms, DT Darrell Scott, WR Preston Parker and WR DeMarco Sampson, according to a league source.
You may recall that Gilyard had a cup of coffee with the Jets before the 2011 season. With Clyde Gates (concussions) expected to miss this week's game, they could add a receiver.
Simms spent the most recent training camp with the Jets; he was released on the final cutdown.
As reported earlier, the Jets don't intend to submit a waiver claim for former Eagles DE Jason Babin.
