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.
