The Browns want starting wide receivers Greg Little and Josh Gordon to be fast on the field but those same players would be wise to slow down off it. It could be the difference between life and death. Little vowed Thursday to act more responsibly after recently making headlines for wrecking his 2011 gray Audi R8 Coupe in April while driving an estimated 127 mph and for receiving another speeding ticket Monday. “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 after practice. “I could have seriously put my life and other lives in danger.” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said he reprimanded Little and Gordon who also was recently cited for speeding. Chudzinski would not reveal whether he disciplined the players but he said both of them were remorseful. Chudzinski said the violations will not affect the playing time of Little and Gordon in the third preseason game Saturday night on the road against the Indianapolis Colts. “We take that seriously” Chudzinski said. “It’s not acceptable. I’ve sat down with both of those guys individually and talked to them and addressed that with them as well as with the team. “All these guys are guys that are learning how to mature. We’re working to build a locker room and a team and a foundation of guys that are accountable.” Little was charged with drag racing April 13 after he lost control of his Audi crashing it into a guardrail knocking down a light pole and leaving about 40 yards of brake tracks on the Jennings Freeway in Cleveland according to the police report. Little denied racing and said “there were no other cars on the road at the time.” Little 24 and a passenger declined medical attention after the one-car crash which took place at 2:47 a.m. according to records. Alcohol was not suspected according to the report. Little was fined $350. “It was really just a mindless effort on my behalf and just not thinking at all just being careless” Little said. “... It was just a pothole that burst my two back tires and that was it. … It was a pretty traumatic experience and it’s something that I learned from and I’m just trying to move forward.”
