On Jan. 8th, I wrote an article that assessed the positions Minnesota needed help at. Among those six positions was wide receiver.
Only one Minnesota wide receiver caught more than 38 passes, three touchdown receptions or accumulated over 500 yards receiving. That one man was Percy Harvin, who is on his way to becoming an elite NFL wideout.
Knowing it had deficiencies at the position, Minnesota acquired three wide receivers this offseason who are likely to make the roster: Jarius Wright (via the 2012 NFL Draft), Greg Childs (via the 2012 NFL Draft) and Jerome Simpson (via free agency).
Simpson is the man I want to focus on. He was suspended for the first three games of the regular season for possession of marijuana.
