Simpson signed a two-year contract with the 49ers on Thursday.

Arguably known for his legal issues more so than his play on the field, Simpson was released by the Vikings in September while serving a three-game suspension to open the 2014 season. The suspension was for a November 2013 DUI arrest, and his release was prompted by a July arrest for violating a limited driver's license, marijuana possession and open bottle. It's unclear whether the 29-year-old wide receiver will receive further discipline from the NFL, but either way, he'll likely have to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Simpson was released by the Vikings on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of the Associated Press reports.

With yet another off-the-field incident afflicting Winter Park, the Vikings have opted to jettison the troubled wideout, after news of another arrest emerged Thursday. Simpson is currently serving a three-game suspension, but with an arraignment scheduled for Nov. 3, his legal proceedings will be the primary hindrance to latching on elsewhere. It would surprise if he played a down during the 2014 season.

Simpson was arrested July 7 by Bloomington, Minn. police for violating a limited driver's license, marijuana possession and open bottle, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports.

Simpson has an arraignment set for Nov. 3 in Hennepin County for the misdemeanor charges. Simpson is currently serving a three-game suspension stemming from a DUI arrest in November. With Simpson already having multiple off-field issues, including a previous three-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy for a drug-related felony charge in 2012, it would seem likely that he'll face another suspension from the NFL and his return from his current three-game suspension is now in doubt.

The NFL has upheld Simpson's three-game suspension stemming from a November DUI arrest, ESPN.com reports.

Simpson is thus eligible to return to the Vikings' lineup for the team's Sept. 28 contest against the Falcons. Upon his return, his role will hinge on the health and production of his fellow wideouts, though presuming the availability of Cordarrelle Patterson and Greg Jennings, Simpson would slot in no higher than No. 3 on the team's depth chart at the position, at that time.
