Browns WR drives himself into trouble
Browns wide receiver Greg Little was ticketed for speeding on Monday night, and now he has a ticket to his head coach’s office.
It seems Little has a problem with driving too fast.

Little was also cited for expired plates after he was pulled over for going 81 MPH in a 60 MPH zone, and on Wednesday Cleveland’s WOIO 19 Action News started digging into Little’s driving record. It found that Little was fined $350 last April when he admitted to driving 127 MPH and losing control of his vehicle. Somehow, he came away from that incident unscathed, but his vehicle hit a guardrail and knocked down a light pole.
WOIO also found that Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has received two speeding tickets since May, most recently one for going 98 MPH in a 60 MPH zone on Aug. 13. A warrant for Gordon was issued in May after he failed to appear in court May 24, two weeks after Cleveland Police ticketed him for driving 45 MPH in a 25 MPH zone.
Wednesday evening the Browns issued a statement that read: “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.”
It’s unclear if Elias Sports Bureau tracks team releasing statements on players “unacceptable driving records,” but this could be a first.
It’s certainly not the first time Little has had to deal with police. WOIO also reported Little’s had past trouble after he was cited for using fictitious plates and didn’t appear in court. When Little played college football at North Carolina, he somehow racked up 93 parking tickets.
