Quarterback Christian Ponder targeted WR Jerome Simpson multiple times in team drills, connecting with the receiver for gains of 20 and 15 yards.
"[Simpson] is doing a better job getting separation," OC Bill Musgrave said. "We can gauge his speed better."
Simpson is a deep sleeper, though it's tough to get excited about the Vikings passing game. Cordarelle Patterson is nipping at his heels, but Simpson may be better than he played last season. He is finally over the back issue that hampered him in 2012.
