Thigpen reunion with go-to WR

Bills QB Tyler Thigpen will make sure he talks with a former college teammate that he teamed with to wreak havoc on the Big South Conference at Coastal Carolina when Buffalo faces Minnesota tonight in preseason action.

Thigpen and Vikings WR Jerome Simpson were teammates for three seasons for the Chanticleers leading the team to a 28-6 mark from 2004-2006. The tandem peaked in their final season together in 2006 when Simpson caught a school-record 16 TD passes from Thigpen, which accounted for more than half of Thigpen’s season total of 29.

When asked if Simpson had any phenomenal plays like the the flip head over heels for a touchdown that Simpson had last season for Cincinnati, Thigpen remembered one.

“He had a ridiculous one-handed catch in one game that made top 10 plays on ESPN too,” Thigpen told Buffalobills.com. “He was pretty tough to stop in college.”
