UPDATE: After being released by the St. Louis Rams on October 17th, Mike Sims-Walker resigned with the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 18th.
An at the time “homeless” Mike Sims-Walker, who has since found a team home in St. Louis, visited The Fast Life to discuss the potential for his forthcoming fifth NFL season.
“That’s like the good old days, me and B Marsh played together,” recalls Sims-Walker at the notion of joining his former Central Florida teammate now with the Miami Dolphins, “we molded each other pretty much; we made each other that much better.”
And as far as who has made him a better NFL receiver, the former Jaguars wide-out doesn’t hesitate to say, “Darrell Revis without question is the best corner back in this league. He’s competing every play; never eases up one bit. He’s in your face, talking. He’s manning up. That’s what you like. It brings out the competition and makes you better.”
Sims-Walker himself knows something about the position from which number 24 for the Jets has challenged him, “I played corner also I college, I got a good feel for reading coverages and what the corner is supposed to do in certain type of coverage.” That ability to read defenses has been, now one of St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford’s main targets, a main asset throughout his career.
Prior to signing with the Rams, Sims-Walker offered this on the overall first pick in this year’s draft, Cam Newton, “Another great young quarterback, he has got so much potential, so much upside, I would love to play with Cam Newton.”
Having endured inefficient quarterback play for a large portion of his career, Sims- Walker when asked as to the desire to play with a proven quarterback stated he believes, “You make your quarterback who he is, you can make it easier on him, you make it easier on you.”
Now number 11 with the Rams, Sims-Walker plans for numerous “easy” Chopper City Juke end-zone performances in the Edward Jones Dome being on the receiving end of second year standout quarterback Sam Bradford, “That’s was great that they were able to put dance on the [Madden] game.”
