ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted early Tuesday that free agent receiver Jerome Simpson, who recently visited the Minnesota Vikings, will be suspended for the first three games of the 2012 season.

In September 2011, police intercepted a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana that was shipped to Simpson's home. It was later revealed that the package was not addressed to Simpson -- but that was after police found six pounds of marijuana upon entering his home.
Earlier this month, Simpson was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years' probation after striking a plea agreement.
Last season Simpson had 725 yards receiving and four touchdowns, including the now-famous flip. The St. Louis Rams are also reportedly interested in Simpson.
