Vikings Bring Back WR Jerome Simpson


It shouldn’t be a big surprise that the Vikings brought back wide receiver Jerome Simpson on a one year deal.

Not only did he play well when given opportunities last year, but his familiarity with new head coach Mike Zimmer almost made it a slam dunk signing.  There is still a question mark surrounding is 2014 status after a probation violation could land him some jail time or a suspension.

If available, his should provide stability and familiarity to an offense bringing back a lot of the same faces from last year.

Welcome back to Minnesota, Jerome Simpson!

    I like Simpson as our #3 WR. We know we got him cheap, and if he can stay out of trouble he can be productive. Not a bad move at all.
