The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed receiver Jerome Simpson. The team announced the move on Friday.

Cordarrelle Patterson was the lone bright spot for the Vikings with a 35.8 yard kick return average, 54 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Vikings WR Simpson Is Healthy, Ready

Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson has his legs back, which means he can go deep again. “Really it was just rest for me. And then just after that getting treatment and just trying to stay off it as much as possible,” Simpsons said. “We have great trainers here, so they told me the right things to do.” You could see it this summer when he worked out at Larry Fitzgerald’s camp. Simpson looked like he loved the game again, and loved running routes.
