Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Besides Adrian Peterson, who's currently in the news for the wrong reasons, there's probably no Viking more popular or who fans are more excited about seeing develop than quarterback Christian Ponder.

He'll be at the Fargo Scheels store tomorrow in case you hadn't heard.

One of the new weapons Ponder will have at his disposal this season is receiver Jerome Simpson, who they signed as a free agent.

Simpson is a burner on a team desperately in need of guys who can stretch the field. And Ponder has liked what he's seen thus far.

Christian Ponder: "All the guys have looked like they've done a lot of work in the offseason. Jerome has impressed me from day one, so quick, so athletic, finds ways to get open. Lotta guys have taken it to heart they're gonna work and it's paid off."

The autograph session will begin at 5 p.m. with autographs guaranteed for the first 500 fans. One item per person will be autographed.
