Vikings Re-Sign WR Jerome Simpson

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed receiver Jerome Simpson. The team announced the move on Friday. Simpson bounced back from an injury plagued first season in Minnesota in 2012 with a solid season last year. He caught 48 passes for a career-high 726 yards in 2013. At season’s end, Simpson expressed a desire to return to the Vikings, who see him as a legitimate deep threat alongside Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson in the passing game.

Minnesota Vikings Disappoint In 2013
