Minnesota Vikings, WR Jerome Simpson agree to one-year deal
Free-agent wideout Jerome Simpson and the Minnesota Vikings agreed to a one-year deal on Tuesday, according to NFL Network contributor and Fox Sports Insider Jay Glazer. Simpson visited with the Vikings over the weekend, which reportedly went "incredibly well." The Vikings were a handful of teams considering the former Bengal, who could face suspension by the NFL after receiving a 15-day jail sentence and three years' probation in connection to a felony drug charge. The St. Louis Rams also reportedly showed interest in Simpson as they look to surround franchise quarterback Sam Bradford with weapons. Simpson gained attention in December by flipping over a defender and landing on his feet in the end zone. A second-round pick out of Coastal Carolina, Simpson has hauled in 71 passes for 1,004 yards and seven touchdowns in four seasons in Cincinnati.
