Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Vikings and WR Jerome Simpson had mutual interest, and then those reports were followed soon after by more reports that an agreement had been reached between the two sides.
On Thursday morning, confirmation of those reports was made. The signing of Simpson is official.
Simpson was a 2nd-round pick (#46 overall) of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008 and had his best season last year with 50 receptions for 725 yards and 4 TDs. In Minnesota, he’ll be an outside, field-stretching WR who complements Percy Harvin very well.
We’ll have more on this signing once the dust settles from the NFL draft. Do not expect this signing to dramatically alter the Vikings approach in this year’s draft.
