ANIMATED: Jerome Simpson Qualifies For The Olympics

Look, the 2012 Summer Olympics are during the offseason, and if there were ever an NFL player that should try his hand at one of the jumping or hurdling events, it's Jerome Simpson. We've already seen him do something ridiculous on the football field this season -- seriously, he did a full flip into the end zone, landing his feet -- and he's shown a tendency for leaping. The man can jump.

On Saturday, Simpson did it again. There's hurdling a man going low, then there's what Simpson did to a poor Houston Texans defender. The defensive back put his head down -- let's learn from this, y'all; stop looking down when tackling him -- and Simpson made the man look foolish.

After the jump, the latest entry in Simpson's jaw-dropping feats of athleticism collection.

High jump, long jump or hurdles: let's go ahead and start a Jerome Simpson for USA Track and Field campaign now.
