Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters on Tuesday that the team would consider re-signing WR Jerome Simpson, who faces the prospect of prison time and NFL discipline after he plead guilty to a drug charge on March 1.

"I wouldn’t rule it out because he is still available," Lewis said, according to the Bengals' website.

Simpson, who is an unrestricted free agent, had 50 receptions for 725 yards last season, while playing all 16 games (14 starts).

Of a potential suspension for Simpson, Lewis said, according to "It’s hard to speculate on that. He’s got a lot of hurdles to go through. I think you have to evaluate from our standpoint is that the best thing for Jerome and us. We know the challenges he has ahead of himself."

Simpson reportedly could face 60 days in prison in Kentucky. He was charged with marijuana trafficking in January stemming from a September incident.
