Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton is apologizing for being arrested for DUI last weekend. Felton apologized on Wednesday at an optional practice, four days after Eden Prairie police arrested him on suspicion of driving while impaired and refusing to take a chemical test. Felton was contrite on Wednesday, saying he regretted bringing some negative attention to his new team. He was signed in the offseason to compete for the starting fullback job. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he was ''extremely disappointed'' when notified of Felton's arrest. Frazier met with Felton to discuss the incident this week, and the fullback was on the field for the entire optional practice on Wednesday. Frazier says he has been stressing the importance of being responsible in the community with the entire team.

Simpson impresses with speed, catch

New Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson displayed speed, hands and leaping ability on a highlight play that had teammates cheering.

Notebook: Why Simpson’s catch is notable

Jerome Simpson wasn’t the most reliable receiver last year, but his catch in Wednesday’s practice showed his impressive athleticism. Simpson has what the Vikings need, but his performance last year compared to Vikings receivers is an interesting and surprising dichotomy. Plus, another receiver showing well, one that is sitting out and other notes from Wednesday.

Minnesota Vikings: Top 10 Reasons Why They Should Move to L.A.
