Speed has been a problem for the Browns’ wide receiving corps this season, but not in the way you might think. Josh Gordon and Greg Little, who combined for 103 catches last season, have both had trouble obeying the speed limit this offseason. Gordon was pulled over after driving 93 mph in a 60 mph zone last week, WOIO-TV in Cleveland reports, and has also failed to show up in court for a minor traffic violation. Little, meanwhile, was ticketed Monday for cruising at 81 mph in a 60 mph zone. That violation may seen rather innocuous, but a police report obtained by WOIO also revealed that the wideout was driving with expired plates, and the station also discovered that Little had admitted to getting into an accident while driving an astounding 127 mph back in April. According to police, Little’s car skidded 40 feet before colliding with a guardrail and knocking down a telephone pole. No injuries reported, however, and Little was assessed only a $350 fine. The Browns released a statement Wednesday regarding their receivers’ troubles on the road. “We’re aware of the situation involving the players and their unacceptable driving records,” the statement read. “We take matters such as this very seriously. We’ve spoken to both individuals, and will address the issue with the entire team.” The team has not announced any disciplinary measures, but Gordon will already be sidelined to begin the season. He was suspended for the first two regular-season games after violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Filed under: Headlines, NFL, Zack Cox
