Minneapolis, MN -It's been on the team's radar for a while now but today the NFL finally levied a penalty on Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson stemming from his arrest on November 9th, 2013.

The three game penalty probably keeps Simpson on the roster when he returns but it certainly opens the door for up-and-comers Adam Thielen and Rodney Smith to make a name for themselves during his absence.
The Vikings will make cuts and release their 53-man roster by this Saturday at 3pm.
