COVINGTON, Ky. - Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson is due back in court Wednesday after he pleaded not guilty to drug trafficking charges in January.

Simpson is scheduled to appear in Kenton County Circuit Court after investigators from California tracked a package shipped to his Crestview Hills home, which they say contained two and a half pounds of marijuana. Authorities said a search of Simpson's home also turned up six more pounds of marijuana, smoking pipes and scales.

Simpson entered a not guilty plea on Jan. 30 after a grand jury indicted him on one count of marijuana trafficking in excess of eight ounces on Jan. 19.

Simpson's attorney says although the package was delivered to Simpson's home, it was addressed to another person.
