Impending free-agent WR Jerome Simpson (Vikings) had an injury-filled season, and he did little statistically when healthy. Simpson was also credited with four dropped balls. In addition, he missed a block which led to the season-ending injury to WR Percy Harvin (ankle). Simpson might return on another short-term deal at the right price, as he is not expected to have much value on the open market. However, the Vikings might just decide to move on after the disappointment of 2012.

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) is still being bothered by a disc injury in his back, according to head coach Leslie Frazier. Simpson has been a big disappointment with only 15 catches for 176 yards and no touchdowns in nine games this year. He hasn't had more than three catches in any game. "You can't get around the injury," Frazier said. "It definitely has had an effect on his play. We're doing the best we can, he's doing the best he can and that play he made on the slant in (last Sunday's) game in the fourth quarter, that was a big play for us. We're going to need him to make some plays for us this Sunday. Give us whatever he can." Simpson's speed has been affected, as well as his ability to cut and plant during his routes. He has yet to be told that he'll need offseason surgery, though.

Minnesota Vikings WRs Michael Jenkins, Stephen Burton and Devin Aromashodu were targeted a total of five times in the team's Week 13 loss against the Green Bay Packers. WR Jerome Simpson finished with two catches (seven targets) for 25 yards, and WR Jarius Wright had only one catch for 13 yards. "I don't want to make it sound bad, but never in my life have I been a part of something like this," Wright said. "I don't even know how to say it." TE Kyle Rudolph led the aerial assault with six receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown, and QB Christian Ponder went 12-for-25 (48 percent completion rate) for 119 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Ponder's longest completion went for only 21 yards, and the Vikings' receivers were not able to gain much separation.

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson was credited with three dropped passes in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. "I'm frustrated just because we lost and how bad of a game I had," Simpson said. "I don't think I've ever had this many drops in a game before."

The Minnesota Vikings have become a very one-dimensional team lately, and opponents are choking off WR Percy Harvin and TE Kyle Rudolph. QB Christian Ponder is waiting for routes to open up down the field and it's not happening. Once the Vikings fall behind, they are forced to abandon their running game and their best weapon, RB Adrian Peterson. "Outside of Percy, I don't consider any of those guys really threats. Obviously, I really like Rudolph, but he's not a stretch-you-down-the-field type of guy. I'm not a huge Jerome Simpson fan. I thought as long as we could get them to throw, we'll be all right," said a scout. As a result, Ponder has seemed more hesitant to take chances down the field.
