Former Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver Cam Sims has re-signed with the Washington Commanders on a one year deal worth $3 million.

Sims played at Alabama from 2014 to 2017 after being a four star recruit and was a part of two national championship teams (2015 and 2017). In his collegiate career he caught 43 balls for 467 yards and two touchdowns.

After going un-drafted in the 2018 NFL Draft, Sims signed with Washington. He showed promise during the preseason and fans in DC were excited to have him on the team, but he suffered a season ending ankle injury in the regular season opener against the Cardinals. Since then he has been back and forth between the program's active roster and practice squad.

As Nick Saban's players are known to do, Sims came through big the first time he got a chance to play in a big game in the NFL. In the 2020 Wild Card round, he caught 7 passes for 104 yards. His effort in that game helped Taylor Heinicke earn recognition as a legitimate quarterback as he nearly led the team to what would have been a major upset over the eventual Super Bowl winning Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cam Sims and Trevon Diggs share a moment following Sims' Wild TD Catch

More recently, Sims has gone viral for making a wild touchdown catch over the shoulders of former Alabama teammate Trevon Digs. After the play was reviewed and confirmed, Diggs ran over to Sims to give him a fist bump as a gesture of respect. With the new deal in place, Tide fans will get to watch the two go head to head twice a year for at least another season.
