Jerome Simpson has made some terrific plays on the football field and some some bone headed mistakes in his personal life.  Simpson is currently on a one-year, $1 million deal with the Vikings and believes he’s worth far more than what the Vikings are paying him.

“I know I’m worth more than what [his current contract] was,” Simpson said. “But I made my bed, so I got to lay in it. I got to just keep improving and move on and make plays. When it’s time to get paid or whatever and get the contract I deserve, then it’s going to happen.”

“I can’t lie. I was definitely surprised that I get paid less than what I got last year,” Simpson told the Pioneer Press. “I had my best numbers. But I guess when you got that negative thing on you, they kind of got you behind the 8-ball.”

Simpson caught 48 passes for 726 yards last season, but was also arrested last November on suspicion of DWI, eventually pleading guilty to lesser charges.
