No, I don't mean his ability to drive block, because he can do that quite well.

Per a report by 19 Action News in Cleveland today, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little has been getting into trouble due to his vehicle driving record, particularly because he's been excessively going over the speed limit. Here are some of the driving-related offenses Little has been charged with:

  • Back in April, he admitted to driving 127 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. This past Monday, he was driving 81 MPH in a 60 MPH zone near Strongsville. The earlier offense had him being accused of drag racing.
  • Little has also been ticketed with license plate violations, and he previously had a warrant out for his arrest for not showing up to court.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon was also charged with going 98 MPH in a 60 MPH zone at one point. The Browns released the following brief statement regarding the matter:

We're aware of the situation involving the players and their unacceptable driving records. We take matters such as this very seriously. We've spoken to both individuals, and will address the issue with the entire team.

I get that many people aren't going to be perfect drivers, and I'm relieved that alcohol was not involved in either of these situations. Nonetheless, these guys need to be smarter and more careful off the field, because they are putting their own life and others' lives in danger.
