According to WCPO, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson was sentenced to 15 days in jail on Thursday, as part of a plea deal that included Simpson paying $7,500 in court fees ($5,000 can be donated to charity) and 200 hours of community service (he had already put in 50 hours).

Simpson was originally indicted for trafficking marijuana on January 19 after federal authorities allowed a “controlled delivery” of marijuana to Simpson’s front door. An eventual plea agreement between Simpson and Kenton County Commonwealth attorney Rob Sanders (aka, the prosecutor) recommended reduced time (as well as probation and community service) in exchange for a guilty plea.

Simpson is currently a free agent with a recent visit in St. Louis. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has left the door open for Simpson’s return. There’s a good chance that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will weigh in, likely posing some sort of suspension on the wide receiver for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

Colts put screws to coach Caldwell

When NFL teams are forced to rebuild their franchises from the ground up, some do it subtly over the course of a few seasons, leaving fans in the dark while their reason for waking up Sunday mornings receives a facelift. Some fans aren’t that lucky, though. They might watch their favorite football squad attempt to completely start over in one offseason. It appears the Indianapolis Colts are headed down that scary, unpredictable road.

It shouldn’t be a complete shock to Colts faithful, but sudden change can be a dangerous thing.

Indianapolis started its reformation by firing its lead decision makers, vice chairman Bill Polian and his son, Chris, who served as the team’s general manager. And if you thought it would end there like I did, you were dead wrong. In what I thought to be a surprising move, the Colts fired head coach Jim Caldwell after three seasons. Indy will now join the Dolphins, Raiders and Buccaneers in the search for new coaching blood, but the Colts might be entering the race too late.

Indianapolis is a sexy destination for any NFL head coach. The management is gone and probably would be one of the perks offered to a new coach if they are experienced. An opportunity to truly run the team is exactly what held up Jeff Fisher’s decision to join the Rams or the Dolphins. St. Louis offered Fisher almost total control while the Dolphins wanted him just for coaching duties. And unsurprisingly,  Fisher joined the Rams this week. Who could blame him?
