Browns wide receiver Greg Little needs to play fast on the field, but he has to slow down off of it.
Little has been cited twice for speeding in the last few months, including an April incident when he crashed his car while traveling 127 miles per hour. Little was then cited again earlier this week for going 81 MPH in a 60 MPH zone with expired plates on his car, which he called “a mindless effort on my behalf” while acknowledging that he needs to take the pedal off the metal in the future.
“It’s obviously something that I’ve got to take very seriously and slow my speeds down and be cautious of others on the road,” Little said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I could have seriously put my life and other lives in danger.”
Little’s fellow wide receiver Josh Gordon was also cited for speeding in both April and May, but he did not meet with reporters on Thursday.
Coach Rob Chudzinski said that both players have been made aware that their behavior is “not acceptable” but declined to say whether there was any team discipline handed down. Both receivers will be in the starting lineup when the Browns face the Colts on Saturday.
