Jerome Simpson Will Be Suspended Three Games For Drug Arrest


An update on Jerome Simpson’s status. Adam Schefter tweets, “Bengals free-agent WR Jerome Simpson is being suspended three games under the substance abuse policy, per NFL source.” Earlier this month Simpson was given a 15-day jail sentence and three years probation after being charged with felony drug trafficking.  The Vikings had Simpson in for a visit this weekend – that visit reportedly went well – but were going to wait until his suspension came down before deciding whether to sign him. Will a three game suspension chase the Vikes away from the former Bengals wide-out best known for introducing the front flip TD?
