Phil Simms Wanted to Fight Desmond Howard? [UPDATE With Simms Comments]

Desmond Howard attended the NFL-Xperience in Dallas Saturday and tweeted that he had an altercation with CBS announcer Phil Simms. A threat was made. Police apparently had to break it up.

According to Howard’s twitter feed, Simms was bent out of shape that Howard mentioned on ESPN earlier this season that an LSU-Tennessee game (Matt Simms plays for the Vols) would feature “three of the worst QBs in the SEC.”

This sounds impossible to believe, right? Could the 55-year-old Phil Simms still be jammed up about something that was said months ago?

UPDATE: Simms released a statement last night about the incident – in which he called it a “private conversation that became heated.” This morning, Simms went on Mike Francesa’s radio show and according to Bob Raissman, said, “There were words. Were they heated? Yeah they probably were. But at no time did I think we might actually fight.”

We’ll wait for video to surface before we completely believe this story.

Because you want to see it first!
