Meeting Between Wide Receiver Jerome Simpson And The Minnesota Vikings "Went Incredibly Well"

According to Jeremy Fowler with the Pioneer Press, former Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson left Minnesota without signing a deal. Fowler writes that the Vikings are taking their time researching "more information about Simpson's potential league-imposed suspension after pleading guilty to a felony drug charge in March," continuing that the team "could get more guidance on the issues as early as Monday."

Dan Wiederer with the Star-Tribune writes that Simpson's meeting in Minnesota "went incredibly well."

The talented wide receiver liked what he heard about his chances to flourish in a significant role here. The Vikings, meanwhile, felt more and more comfortable as they got to know Simpson better.

Until the league announces judgment against Simpson, which is expected to be a four-game suspension, there isn't any rush to sign Simpson until more is known -- which we believe could be the whole "clarification" or additional information that the Vikings are waiting for.

As we point out every time during a Jerome Simpson, the Bengals are leaving the door open for Simpson's return. But we highly doubt they'll put forth much effort to negotiate against other teams like the Vikings or the St. Louis Rams, also interested in Simpson.
