Former Packer and current ESPN football analyst Desmond Howard reported via twitter that he was challenged to a fight by Phil Simms (former Giants QB, current NFL color commentator on CBS). Here are Howard's tweets (desmond_howard) from Saturday afternoon:

At NFL-Xperience and Phil Simms just threatened 2 hit me b/c I said his son was 1 of the worse QBs in the SEC. I told him 'LET'S GO!'

I am DEAD serious about the Phil Simms thing. We all thought he was joking, but he kept going and said he wanted 2 take a swing at me!!

During the season we talked about the Tenn vs LSU game and I said 'u will see 3 of the worse QBs in teh SEC' That's what Phil did not like.

It ended w/police stepping in between so I could continue my appearance w/fans.

Those are Howard's four tweets about the incident. Here's more from the incident, including a photo.
