Report: Vikings WR Jerome Simpson Appealing Three-Game Suspension

 

Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports that the Vikings WR Jerome Simpson was in New York Monday to appeal a three-game suspension the NFL was prepared to hand down for his drunken driving arrest that occurred last November.

According to Goessling, Simpson had two lawyers meeting with the league on his behalf Monday.

Simpson wound up pleading guilty to careless driving and refusing to submit to a chemical test. He has already completed the required community service this spring.

This suspension is being treated as a second offense given that Simpson was previously arrested for suspended the first three games of the 2012 season.

Simpson, 29, signed a one-year contract worth $1 million with the Vikings back in March, Last year, he appeared in 16 games and caught 48 receptions for 726 yards receiving and a touchdown.
