      Vikings re-sign WR Jerome Simpson

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed receiver and former Coastal Carolina All-American Jerome Simpson.

      The team announced the move on Friday. Simpson bounced back from an injury plagued first season in Minnesota in 2012 with a solid season last year. He caught 48 passes for a career-high 726 yards in 2013.

      At season's end, Simpson expressed a desire to return to the Vikings, who see him as a legitimate deep threat alongside Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson in the passing game. The Vikings also brought quarterback Matt Cassel back in free agency, which will ensure continuity from a personnel standpoint going into next season under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
