From USA Today:
CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ohio - Authorities swooped in on a house owned by Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson after a package containing 2.5 pounds of California marijuana was allegedly delivered to the home. Investigators found 6 more pounds of pot inside the home, says Michelle Gregory, spokeswoman for the California Department of Justice.
Gregory said Simpson and Bengals teammate Anthony Collins were present when a woman, identified as Aleen Smith, 27, accepted the package Tuesday at Simpson's home. Authorities detained Simpson and Collins, but no one was arrested, Gregory said. Simpson told police he lived at the residence and gave officers consent to search the premises, Gregory said.
Officers also seized drug paraphernalia such as "packaging materials, scales and smoking devices."
"The house was set up as a potential distribution network," Tommy LaNier, head of the National Marijuana Initiative, told CaliforniaWatch. The NMI is funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and helps coordinate marijuana enforcement operations around the United States.
Are NFL players really this fucking dumb? Why not get the weed delivered to someone you are tight with who isn't on the NFL PAYROLL!? The fuck are these morons thinking? And second, do you really need to deal weed when you are an NFL receiver? Really? I'm looking up this motherfucker's salary. According to spotrac.com, Simpson is going to make a total of $926,750 this season. So do you really need that extra couple thousand from slanging weed? I don't think so you fucking idiot. But now that the Bengals will probably cut you, you'll have to move up to coke to pay for that nice car and house. Idiot.
