Jerome Simpson's Sentencing Scheduled For Today

This is somewhat of a big day. No, we're not talking about the Findley Market parade, which gears up Reds fans for the traditional opening day in Cincinnati. Rather today is Jerome Simpson's sentencing after the (maybe former) Bengals wide receiver pled guilty to a felony drug charge on March 1.

Kenton Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders recommended that Simpson serve 60 days behind bars, along with three years of probation and 200 hours of community service. If the judge agrees to the recommendation then Simpson's time in jail will be relatively short. On the other hand if the judge wants to make an example, he could send Simpson to prison for three years.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has left the door open for a new contract with Simpson, who is currently a free agent. According to Jim Thomas with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the St. Louis Rams hosted Simpson on Wednesday.
