We all knew Jordan Addison was fast, but I don’t think anyone realized he was this fast.
As first reported by Bill Enright of Sports Illustrated, Vikings wide receiver Jordan Addison was charged with reckless driving early this morning, getting pulled over at approximately 3am. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Addison was clocked going 140 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. For reference, Henry Ruggs was traveling 156 MPH during his fatal crash a couple years ago.
At the time of the incident, Addison was driving a Lamborghini Urus down Interstate 94 in St. Paul. While stopped, Addison received a citation for reckless driving and speeding. No other information has been provided by the police as the investigation remains open. According to Minnesota State Law, those found driving over 100 MPH may be subject to a 6 month license suspension.
The Vikings drafted Addison 23rd overall in this year’s draft. The former USC star is slated to fight for the #2 receiver slot on the Vikes’ depth chart to play alongside All-Pro star Justin Jefferson when training camp begins in a week.
Roger Goodell and the NFL have yet to release a statement on the matter, but it is presumed Addison will likely face some sort of punishment.
Rookie mistake or inconceivable idiot?
This is just another classic example of a stupid athlete trying to ruin his career before it even starts. We get it dude, you have a lambo. Congrats. Guess what? You won’t be able to afford that car if you get yourself kicked out of the league before preseason.
Obviously the Vikings aren’t going to cut their first round pick just like that, but that’s not the point. Between Ja Morant’s gun antics, multiple NFL players gambling, and now this, it feels like athletes everywhere are trying to get themselves blacklisted from sports. You are fortunate enough to play a game for a living. Not to mention you get paid an insane amount of money to do so.
Just because you can catch a football doesn’t mean you are invincible. Grow up, realize how amazing your life is, and stop acting a fool. It’s not that hard, idiot.
