Is Cam Sims bitter that Nick Saban didn't play him more at Alabama? 'He ain't making no mistakes'
Cam Sims has been making big plays for the Washington Redskins this preseason. But things were a little different when he played at Alabama the past three seasons.

Sims signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in April after a relatively quiet college career. He totaled 34 receptions for 405 yards over three seasons, including last year, when he had 14 catches for 207 yards and his only career touchdown.
Now that Sims is thriving and has a chance to make Washington’s roster — he has five catches for 131 yards in two preseason games — it’d be understandable if he was bitter that Alabama coach Nick Saban didn’t give him more playing time with the Crimson Tide.
However, that’s not the case.
“He ain’t never make no mistakes, you see it, I got two rings,” Sims said at Redskins camp. “He ain’t making no mistakes. I went to the college playoffs four years in a row, he ain’t making no mistakes.”
But that doesn’t mean that Sims isn’t happy about how things are going for him in the NFL preseason.
“I’ve probably gotten the ball more here than all four of my years in college,” Sims said. “Of course I’ve gotten more attention, because I’m coming down with the plays. But that’s really nothing, I’ve just got to keep working.”
In the Redskins’ 15-13 win over the Jets on Thursday, Sims had three catches for 57 yards, including a 20-yard reception that set up the game-winning field goal.
