Vikings Jerome Simpson and Jared Allen Ready for Season Ahead

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret that the Vikings at training camp in Mankato, are still looking to fill the void left by Percy Harvin in the passing game...

The purple and gold brought in Greg Jennings and picked up Cordarelle Patterson in the draft... but coach Frazier says Jerome Simpson shouldn't be counted out as he looks to be a top contender in the wide receiver slot this season.

Simpson was suspended for the first three games last season for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

On the other side of play ... even though Defensive End Jared Allen underwent shoulder surgery in the off–season ... he says he has high hopes for this year.
