Vikings release Simpson

Simpson scored one touchdown in 28 games with the Vikings.

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.
