Greg Little looks to put street racing woes behind him
By Ross Jones, FOXSports.com
There was nothing small about Greg Little’s car accident in April.
The Browns’ third-year wide receiver totaled his high-performance Audi after smashing it into a guard rail, leaving behind 40 yards of brake tracks and taking out a light pole while traveling at 127 mph, according to a police report. Although Little was traveling nearly 60 mph over the legal speed limit, he vowed to act more responsibly behind the wheel.
That was until he was ticketed Monday night for driving 81 mph in a 60 mph zone and having expired license plates in Strongsville, Ohio. The consequence? Little will have to appear in court on Sept. 4, four days before the Browns kickoff their season against the Dolphins.
“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. “I could have seriously put my life and other lives in danger.”
Little claims that he has learned his lesson and is trying to put it behind him.
“Yeah, it was a pretty traumatic experience and it’s something that I learned from and I’m just trying to move forward and just learn from it,” he said.
The Browns are banking on Little to be a big part of their offense as new offensive coordinator Norv Turner puts a premium on challenging defenses vertically.
