The Minnesota Vikings released wide receiver Jerome Simpson on Thursday after it was reported that he was cited on July 7 by Bloomington, Minn. police for violating a limited driver’s license, marijuana possession and open bottle.
Simpson has an arraignment set for Nov. 3 in Hennepin County for the misdemeanor charges.
He is currently serving a three-game suspension stemming from a DUI arrest last November.
Simpson played all 16 games for the Vikings last season and re-signed on a one-year, $1 million contract in March. However, according to ESPN, his contract was not guaranteed and included a roster bonus of $3,125 for every game he was active.
As a result of the suspension and the release, the Vikings will not owe Simpson any additional money. Simpson was also suspended for three games in 2012 for a marijuana-related arrest in Kentucky.
