Former Bengals Jerome Simpson Sentenced to 15 Days in Jail, For Flipping Weed

A Kentucky judge has sentenced unrestricted free-agent wide receiver Jerome Simpson to 15 days in jail and three years’ probation for a drug-related charge.

The judge in Covington on Thursday reduced the jail time from the 60 days recommended by prosecutors in a plea agreement.

Simpson, who played the past four seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals, pleaded guilty on March 1 to the felony charge resulting from about 2 pounds of marijuana shipped to his northern Kentucky home in September.
