Jerome Simpson Makes Sick Grab at Vikings OTAs
New Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson is known for his ridiculous athletic ability. Well he’s at it again. Now this is no flip into the end zone in a live game, but it’s not bad for OTAs in June either.
Simpson has plenty of people in Minnesota excited to watch him this year, minus of course the first 3 games of the season, which Simpson is suspended for.
The signing of Simpson is in no way risky, in my opinion. The guy by all accounts is extremely talented, but has been flagged with having character issues, thus why no one was jumping at the bit to sign him.
The Vikings scored Simpson extremely cheap, inking him to a 1 year deal worth $2 million in total.
Most figure that Simpson will be working his tail off this season to prove the naysayers wrong, and to earn himself a larger version of his current contract.
He’s a guy that is very low risk, with a high reward. With regular playing time, Simpson could easily rack up 1,000 yards, as he will be one of Christian Ponder‘s main targets on the outside.
If Simpson can’t grow up and be on his best behavior, or if he doesn’t produce on the field, he’s gone. No one involved will lose any sleep over it.
Even with catches like the one above, I’m still not going to count on Simpson for anything. I know what he’s capable of, and I think he finally has his head on straight, but I just won’t believe it until I see it.
