WR Jerome Simpson's suspension upheld

Fri, 08/29/2014 - 11:14
Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson’s three game suspension was upheld by the NFL. Simpson missed practice on Aug. 18 to meet with the league in New York to appeal the suspension stemming from a drunken-driving arrest last season. The wide receiver avoided jail time in January after pleading guilty to careless driving and third-degree drunken driving following a Nov. 9 arrest. Simpson, 28, was placed on a one-year probation and ordered to perform 120 hours of community service in public schools. It’s the second suspension for Simpson, who is entering his sixth season, and it occurs just a day before the Vikings must trim their roster down to 53 players from 75 by 3 p.m. CT on Saturday. It’s unknown how Simpson’s suspension will impact whether they plan to keep five or six receivers. The 28-year-old previously served a three-game suspension when he first signed with the Vikings in 2012 for a drug arrest in September 2011 when he played for the Bengals. Despite knowing of a possible suspension, the Vikings opted to re-sign Simpson to a one-year deal in the offseason. He was used as the team’s third wide receiver in the preseason and had two catches for 25 yards in the four exhibition games.
