Bengals' Simpson pleads guilty on felony drug charge

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson entered a guilty plea in a Kentucky courtroom on a felony drug charge of prohibited acts involving a controlled substance, says WLWT-TV in Cincinnati.

Simpson had been faced with a trafficking charge after officials raided his home following a package of marijuana being delivered there last fall.

Simpson will be sentenced next month and could face 60 days in jail, three years of probation and 200 hours of community service.

The wide receiver can be a free agent on March 13, and the outcome in the courtroom certainly won't enhance his appeal with most of the other 31 teams. Such transgressions, though, don't seem to faze the Bengals as much as it does other teams when evaluating prospective players. (See Maualuga, Rey and Jones, Pacman for the most recent in a long line of examples).

It also probably won't sit well with Commissioner Roger Goodell, who tends to frown on such things as misbehavior by NFL players.
