Matt Simms, son of Phil, pays a visit to the Giants

The son of former Giants quarterback Phil Simms got a pre-draft visit with the Giants.

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that Matt Simms was invited to a workout for the Giants, along with Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. (The visits have also been logged in our workout tracker.)

Realistically (and saying this at the risk of Phil Simms coming after me like he went after Desmond Howard), it’s highly unlikely that the Giants actually see Matt Simms as a player they might draft. At Tennessee last year, Simms completed just 27 of 62 passes, with no touchdowns and three interceptions.

More likely, Simms’ role was to throw passes to Sanu, who is a player the Giants could be considering. Both Simms and Sanu are locals who don’t count against the limit of 30 players a team can bring in for pre-draft visits.

Matt’s big brother Chris Simms recently joined the Patriots’ coaching staff.
