Vikings Sign Receiver, Simpson
The Vikings have signed free agent ex-Cincinnati Bengal receiver Jerome Simpson to an undisclosed contract. Simpson will have to sit out the first 3 games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy while a member of the Bengals. Simpson was a 2nd round pick by the Bengals in 2008. He had 50 catches for 725 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2011.
Simpson is considered a deep threat and will likely play the position vacated by Bernard Berrian. Devin Aromashdu played that position after Berrian was released last season. Simpson is 6’2 190 pounds.
