“It’s fair overall,” said Travis.
Simpson was a second-round draft pick from Coastal Carolina. He caught 53 passes for 758 yards and four touchdowns last season. A heels-over-head flip over a defender to score a touchdown became a staple of NFL highlight films.
Simpson’s attorney and agent say he faces discipline from the NFL that could include suspension from multiple games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Some of Simpson’s teammates, including Adam “Pacman” Jones attended the hearing. Along with Simpson, Jones is one of four Bengals either arrested or indicted since last July. The others were linebacker Rey Maualuga and running back Cedric Benson.
