Follow the bouncing quarterback.

When the Jets released Matt Simms last week, it triggered a series of moves, which has led another guy to Jacksonville.

According to the league’s personnel notice, the Jaguars have claimed quarterback Jeff Tuel off waivers from the Bills. Tuel had been made expendable and was released when the Bills reunited coach Rex Ryan with Simms via a waiver claim.

To make room for Tuel on the 90-man roster, the Jaguars waived quarterback Jake Waters (a rookie free agent who might not trigger a series of moves).

Tuel could push current No. 3 Stephen Morris out of a job behind Blake Bortles and Chad Henne, provided the Jaguars keep three.
