NFL Suspensions: Meet Vikings Jerome Simpson AKA The Luckiest Man in the World
I know that Jerome Simpson is going to have a ballerific season. After all, he’s the luckiest man in the world.
Just a few months ago we all thought that Simpson was going up the creek without a paddle after over 2 pounds of marijuana was delivered to his doorstep and another pound was found inside once authorities searched his home. Suddenly G-Dep’s “Special Delivery“makes sense. Funny, cause G-Dep is in prison now…but not Simpson.
For such a dumb and blatantly obvious crime, Simpson didn’t get much in the way of penalties. 15 days in jail, 200 hours of community service and a fine of $7500.

I think marijuana should be legal so this light sentence suits me just fine. But there’s no doubt that Simpson lucked up with this as well as a very light suspension by the NFL commissioner — Simpson must sit for 3 games. In the scheme of an NFL season, missing 3 games really sucks. But when you get caught having weed overnighted to your residence this is the best possible scenario. I could have seen him easily getting a 5 game suspension.
Meanwhile, Simpson seems to be settling in with his new team just fine. They’re raving about him. He’ll be back to flipping in no time.
