NFL rumors: Vikings would like to re-sign Jerome Simpson

The NFL free agent period is set to kick off next week and the Minnesota Vikings will be looking to solidify their wide receiving corp. In order to do so, they may not look too far and could decide to re-sign free agent wide receiver Jerome Simpson.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings would like to re-sign Simpson if the two sides could work out details of a deal.

Simpson is a No. 3 wide receiver and the Vikings could look elsewhere to fill the void, but the familiarity that Simpson has with new Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer from their time with the Cincinnati Bengals could be enough to convince him to stay in town.

    MAYBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He showed some flashes, but there are a bunch of good 3rd receivers in free agency.

    Have no problem with that, as long as it’s a 1-2yr deal, and the price is right. I’m actually hoping Childs can come back from his injuries/surgeries and be productive. If he can, it’d be like getting an extra draft pick in this yr’s draft. Also hope they give Theilen a chance to see what he can do.
