Simpson was under investigation by multiple agencies after a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana was tracked from California to his Northern Kentucky home, where six more pounds of marijuana was allegedly discovered. He finished the season without much more word on the situation, leaving many Bengals fans wondering what would happen. This is the first we've heard about the situation since the original incident.

Simpson is a free agent and after an up-and-down season, this news will likely turn out to be the final nail in his coffin with the Bengals.
