Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports that Simpson, suspended after being arrested for DUI last year, has a court date on November 3 in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Simpson was cited, but not arrested, on misdemeanor charges of violating a limited license, marijuana possession and open bottle after being pulled over in a traffic stop on July 7.

Didnt the Vikes know about this before the contract? Simpson was my favorite, and I think the best WR on the team (i have such a hard time giving former packers any credit). CP, awesome athlete, still working on routes and separation. The Vikings are a train wreck.

What or who is next? Can we just take a year or a decade off?

I was hoping for Simpson to carry out the promise he showed in Cincy. Besides the spectacular td catch, he made a ton of sweet catches for the Bengals. He has disappointed fans in purple and his actions has harmed his NFL career.

The Vikings officially released Simpson without termination pay.

Simpson decided not to tell the Vikings about the traffic stop?

Does that mean the Vikings have to go with Jarius "Two Wrongs Don't Make A" Wright?

That is not good.

Wright has promise.

Wright has promise.
I first read that as, "Wright has promised ...." As in, he has promised to run good routes, create separation, adjust to deep balls, and catch balls thrown to his hands.

This is his third season. Receivers usually show what they can do by the third year, and I have not seen anything showing us that Wright is anything special. I could be wrong, but game film does not lie.

that's true but he didn't get large amounts of playing as the previous brain trust decided it was better to play Simpson who had more PI calls than catches/TDs. So Wright hasn't really had the full two seasons like some 3rd year players have had.

I doubt anyone ever counted on Simpson to clean up his act...small term and small dollar contracts pretty much show that. He was always looking to be replaced.

The American Stig could catch some of the balls that Wright has either dropped or let get picked because he could not adjust to the deep ball, and the American Stig is a slow fat guy.

Glad we finally cut bait on Simpson. I had such high hopes when we signed him and what a disappointment.

He had too many off field issues, but he was a good second receiver. I do not know who will step up and replace him for the Vikings.

Hoping it can be Thielen. I think he could be a very solid slot WR with sure hands and can move the sticks with Patterson and Jennings working the outside.

Rodney Smith has been impressive in camp. He has size, and he can block downfield. He also has a hamstring pull, so he may not be active against the Saints.

Very true. The one year offers that the front office give him was the clue that we had no trust in Simpson.

I would like to see Smith in some more plays. Dude always looked good in pre season the last 2 years.
Also, whatever happened to Childs? Haven't heard anything on him this year. Did we finally just cut the ties?

Yes, Childs was cut. It is too bad he could not escape injuries.

Yeah, I Googled him, and it looks like he signed to the Argonauts practice squad...

Good riddance to Simpson. He was/is a dumbshit. And I'm tired of dumbshits.
