Jerome Simpson suspended three games

Posted · Add Comment

Jerome Simpson will be unavailable to the Vikings for the first three games of the 2014 season.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Simpson's November DUI arrest netted him a three-game ban to start the year. It's his first alcohol-related incident, though the second time he's violated the league's substance-abuse policy.

In a sense, the Vikings now have one less cut to make since he won't start the season counting toward the 53-man roster. And if some of Minnesota's younger receivers impress, Simpson could be looking for a new team when he's eligible to return.
