Draft Scout Jerome Simpson News
12/09/13 - WR Jerome Simpson finally reached the end zone as a member of the Vikings. His last touchdown came with the Bengals on Christmas Eve, 2011. That was the famous catch in which he somersaulted over a defender and stuck the landing in the end zone.
11/25/13 - --WR Jerome Simpson, the team's leader in receiving yardage with 546, had two impactful catches in Sunday's tie. His 31-yarder, combined with Green Bay's unnecessary roughness penalty for hitting a defenseless receiver, was a key play on a touchdown drive. And Simpson's other catch was a 23-yarder. He was targeted only two other times. Simpson made his first big plays since his arrest and charges for DWI two weeks ago. In his first game after his arrest, he was held to one catch for one yard in the loss at Seattle.
09/30/13 - WR Jerome Simpson had a game-high 124 yards on seven catches. He's starting to become the player the Vikings thought he was when they signed him before last season. A three-game suspension and a back injury ruined last season. Simpson now is a deep threat. His 51-yard reception came on one of the few times the Vikings have connected on passes that travel 20 yards or farther from the line of scrimmage. On that pass, the ball went 24 yards in the air to a single-covered Simpson.
09/19/13 - WR Jerome Simpson is well on his way to a bounce-back season. A year after catching only 26 passes because of back and leg issues, he already has nine catches for 189 yards. His 21.0-yard average ranks fourth in the NFL.
09/16/13 - WR Jerome Simpson might have more energy in his legs than any other receiver in the league. Nearly every time he runs out to his spot in formation, he finishes by leaping high into the air. He's also made some impressive leaping catches, particularly on a 47-yard catch of a poorly-thrown deep ball by Christian Ponder in the season opener.
"I'm the highest jumper in the league, hands down," Simpson said. "It's just always something I've been doing my whole life. It's a skill I've mastered. When I was younger, I used to always try to touch the wall above the doorway with my hand. My handprints would always be on the wall and my mom used to kind of get on me. But I guess it kind of paid off."
