Draft Scout Jerome Simpson News
11/25/12 - WR Jerome Simpson continues to struggle in making his mark in the passing game. QB Christian Ponder threw a perfect slant pass on third-and-four from the Chicago 22-yard line early in the first quarter. Simpson could have had a big gain, but flat out dropped the ball. He dropped two more balls and finished with one catch for one yard.
11/07/12 - WR Jerome Simpson (calf) was back in the injury report, but had full participation. He's expected to play on Sunday.
11/04/12 - WR Jerome Simpson was virtually invisible Sunday, coming up with only one catch for 14 yards. However, those 14 yards represented the Vikings' top receiving total Sunday. Simpson has to become more involved in the passing game, particularly the deep ball, or teams will continue to take away the short passes to Percy Harvin.
10/28/12 - WR Jerome Simpson caught his first deep ball of the season – a 33-yarder late in the game – but he finished with only two catches for 37 yards. And he fumbled his other reception after a 4-yard gain in the first half. There's still time for Simpson to get more involved in the offense. It's a must, considering he was brought in to be the best deep threat the team has had since Sidney Rice in 2009.
10/23/12 - WR Jerome Simpson will become a bigger part of the offense now that his lower leg weakness appears to be behind him. He has only four catches for 58 yards, but also has drawn three pass interference penalties of at least 26 yards. The Vikings need a deep threat to open things up and stop teams from putting eight and nine men in the box.
