EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have released wide receiver Jerome Simpson.
The move was made Thursday, following the revelation of misdemeanor charges of driving on a limited driver's license, possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle, and having an open bottle in a motor vehicle for Simpson from a July citation. Police in Bloomington, Minnesota, confirmed the charges.
He has a Nov. 3 arraignment in Hennepin County court, but with Simpson already serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, the Vikings didn't wait to assess his status. He would have been eligible to return to the active roster Monday.
