Jerome Simpson not at practice again

Reuters

Jerome Simpson has gone from a starting receiver for the Bengals to an invisible man, three days after a package containing 2.5 pounds of pot was delivered to his residence — and authorities then found another six pounds of it inside.

Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports that Simpson has been excused from practice for a second straight day, making him “very doubtful” for Sunday’s home opener against the 49ers.

Although Simpson has not yet been arrested, it seems to be only a matter of time.  The delay apparently arises from the overlapping jurisdictions and the various potential charges that could be filed.  Once prosecutors straighten out those issues, Simpson will undoubtedly face charges.

On Sunday, Andre Caldwell is expected to start in Simpson’s place.

It marks the end of a bad week for Simpson, who dropped a pass late in Sunday’s loss to the Broncos, which would have put Cincinnati in range for a potential go-ahead field goal.

Teammate Anthony Collins was implicated in the situation via initial reports, but coach Marvin Lewis has said Collins was not involved.

  1. Of course he’s not at practice ….. do you have any idea how much time it takes to smoke eight pounds of weed??????

  2. Jerome where you stay brah!?!? Cause man its drought city ’round here. Its bad enough knowing he makes more in one game check than what I do in 5 years, but this somehow stings a little more.

  3. Jerome, soon to be a footnote in Bengal history and a life up in smoke because stupidty always trumps talent.

    Damn…what do you have to do to get arrested in Ohio nowadays?

    Northern Kentucky, though considered a suburb of Cincinnati, is NOT in Ohio.

    Seriously? You couldn’t have paid somebody to accept delivery for you?

    Dummy.

    The package was NOT delivered to Jerome, but to a girl who lived with him.

    This post made me take a couple of minutes to go to the cincinatti.com news site, and found that you’re right …… but the story is actually WORSE than we thought.

    The package was tracked by police from California to Cincy, and it was “accepted” by his girlfriend. The article doesn’t state WHO’S name was on the package, but it was Simpson’s home.

    Here’s the thing; police tracking the 2.5 lb. package of pot found at the house another 6 lbs. of weed, scales, distribution supplies, and “smoking devices”.

    Even if the stuff were hers (and where does SHE get the money for 8 pounds of pot???), being that this was HIS house, it’s hard to imagine that Simpson was unaware that those things were in the house.

    AND HE STILL GAVE CONSENT TO SEARCH IT!!!!!!

    How stupid IS this guy????
