Sims-Walker takes minor shots at Revis, Jags' offensive line
Our freelance reporter Rick Cordella, who moonlights as the G.M. of NBC Sports Digital, had one more bit of information from his brief trip to Las Vegas for the Interactive Sports Conference.
Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker was in attendance, and Sims-Walker answered some questions in a roomful of folks. Though Chris Johnson was more colorful and outspoken, Sims-Walker offered up a few nuggets worth mentioning.
As to Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, widely regarded as one of the best cover corners in the game, Sims-Walker said that Revis plays for the best defensive team, and that he has lots of safety help. (Sims-Walker added the CYA caveat "not to take anything away from him" after, of course, taking something away from him.)
Regarding Jags quarterback, David Garrard, Sims-Walker was asked whether Garrard is "elite," probably since coach Jack Del Rio recently suggested that Garrard isn't. Sims-Walker said that Garrard can be elite, if he gets time in the pocket.
Finally, regarding the one player who has been most linked with Jacksonville in the offseason -- quarterback Tim Tebow -- Sims-Walker's comments was simple: No comment.
Fortunately, Chris Johnson never invokes that answer.
