On Monday, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson was in New York for an appeal hearing on his latest suspension. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, it’s a potential three-game ban. This is not good news for the Vikings.
The punishment arises from a November 2013 arrest for DUI and refusal to submit to a chemical test. Simpson later pleaded guilty to reckless driving and failure to submit to a chemical test, but the outcome triggers scrutiny under the portion of the substance-abuse policy that relates to alcohol-related offenses. ]
Simpson ranked second on the team in 2013, his sixth season in the NFL, with 48 receptions and with 726 yards. He received a $500,000 signing bonus when he got a new contract last year, but he has no guaranteed money in his latest deal.
