Beat writer Tom Pelissero says it "seems a given" that the Vikings will not bring back impending free agent Jerome Simpson in 2013.
Simpson has been among the least effective starting wideouts in the NFL this season. Perhaps his early-season back injury has something to do with it, but the straight-line speedster doesn't even appear to be giving enough effort. He has 19 catches for 203 yards in his first 10 games as a Viking.
