According to The Kentucky Post, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson is due back in court today at 1:30 p.m. (ET) for the drug trafficking charges against him. As I'm sure you remember, Simpson was under investigation by both federal and Northern Kentucky law enforcement agencies after a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana was shipped from California to his Northern Kentucky home.
Now it seems that the package of marijuana was not actually addressed to Jerome Simpson himself.
Simpson's attorney says although the package was delivered to Simpson's home, it was addressed to another person.
This, of course, changes a lot of things we thought we knew about the case, and while it baffled some that Simpson would plead not guilty, now everything makes a little more sense.
Stay tuned throughout the day for more news on Simpson's court appearance.
