Being serious though, the former NFL wide receiver told a courtroom that he offered to “take the fall” for Brandon Marshall, his former college roommate, in the New York Jets star wide receiver's civil trial for allegedly punching a woman.
Sims-Walker, the former Rams and Jaguars receiver, had a video deposition read into the record in which text messages between him and Marshall were explained to the jury.
“If I need to, I’ll take the blame; I’ll say I hit her,” Sims-Walker acknowledged having texted to Marshall at one point.
Sims-Walker, a former teammates of Marshall’s at the University of Central Florida, later admitted Marshall at no point asked him to take the blame. Marshall responded to Sims-Walker’s offer by saying it would not be necessary.
“We have the footage,” Marshall told Sims-Walker, while declining the offer.
The plaintiff Christin Myles testified Tuesday that she swung on Sims-Walker before being punched by Marshall.
According to NJ.com, grainy security video shown Wednesday in court seems to show Marshall throwing a punch, but it’s not clear if it was in defense of his wife Michi, who was struck in the face by a bottle inside the club and had a few teeth knocked out and her lip split.
