The receiver served his three-game suspension for a drug charge, and now he is eager to fully rejoin his teammates.

Simpson will be a great WR for the Vikings, but nobody should expect him to be much a deep threat or go over 100 yards in a game-with Ponder's style of play. It's not Ponder's game to zip it down field. He never has. But Simpson will help our passing game no doubt!

After listening to and reading quotes from Simpson, it's hard to believe he's a convicted drug dealer. Hopefully it's not an act and he follows Jared Allen's lead and makes the most of his second chance.

nowilfare3: I was with you until you added the "/is". How do you know he's still currently involved with drugs?

I just hope that he can keep up his "good" football skills and personal ethics.

Maybe after the roster exemption expires, the Vikings can cut John Carlson. He doesn't seem to be contributing anything.

John Carlson is a waste of money, BIG WASTE. I like Reisner and Ellison much much better. Carlson is an overpaid player who had one good season and has been hurt the rest of his career or hasnt done anything on the field worth noting. VERY average player.
