Browns’ Little in trouble again for multiple traffic violations

In addition to dropping several passes on Sunday afternoon, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little was once again cited for a traffic violation in the late hours. Cleveland’s 19 Action News reports that Little was pulled over on Cleveland’s Elm Avenue around 1 a.m. Monday for a stop sign violation in addition to driving under a suspended license. Little’s car was towed as a result of the incident.

The third-year Browns receiver has had plenty of run-ins with local traffic officials over the last year, leading to several issues being made public and a subsequent reprimanding from head coach Rob Chudzinski. One week earlier, Little paid $472 in fines and court costs for a ticket over a license plate violation. He also has another pending ticket for speeding while going 81 mph in a 60 speed zone in Berea.

While many of Little’s traffic issues are minor in a vacuum, they are a growing sign of a player who continues to fail at doing his job on the field and show little regard for rules off of it. While Little is only credited with two dropped passes on the season, a Week 1 interception hit him in the hands before falling into the defenders arms; several targets in Week 2 also resulted in contact without a reception.

On the season, Little has eight receptions (22 targets) for 59 yards.

    Grab yer pitchforks!

  • FearTheRoo

    Couldn’t care less what he does off the field. Everybody gets tickets, it happens.

    Just take of business on the field.

  • boomhauertjs

    Definitely doesn’t seem worth the trouble considering his on-field production (or lack thereof). This franchise is an embarassment, from the owner on down.

  • MrCleaveland

    I’m ready to cut the cord with this clown.

  • Harv 21

    The steady stream of driving issues probably have probably little connection with his dropsies, hearing safety footsteps and general lack of ball hunger. But man, how do you run any stop signs just a few months after nearly killing yourself in a senseless and ridiculously high speed highway accident?

    Just increasingly hard to like this guy, no matter how many annual valentine stories Mary Kay Cabot writes about his hard work and impending “break out season.” He’s stopped his stupid tweeting and peacock dancing after first down passes in losses. That’s the only objective break outs I see.

  • Ezzie Goldish

    Is it just me or does it seem like he has these after every screwup on the field? Does he go drive like nuts when he’s ticked at his own play?

    Whatever. Hard to justify him as anything other than a #4 WR at this point with the drops. Though perhaps he should play RB.

    Your 1 crappy team beat your other crappy team this weekend.

  • Harv 21

    Looking at Scott’s piece from a few weeks back, looked more like almost all were off-season.

    Here’s what’s sickening as well: Ravens got a very solid contribution from an undrafted rookie receiver, Marlon Brown. He burned Chris Brown on one TD on a really good route and if he had hung onto the first half bomb from Flacco in the end zone he would have been player of the game.

  • mgbode

    8receptions on 22 targets indicates that he has trouble with traffic on the field as well.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Yea I think it’s time.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Just one problem, he doesn’t take care of business on the field.

  • Natedawg86

    I can see this scenario playing out.
    Police Officer hands Little a citation. He drops it. Officer proptly arrests him…

  • CB Everett

    Well it appears that in any circumstance, Little is terrible in traffic.

  • Lunch

    So who is considered the best WR in next years draft?

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    No clue but I’m sure mgbode and a few others can throw out some possibilities. I’m still pissed Julio Jones plays for Atlanta besides even if they get THE BEST WR available they’ll still need someone to throw him the ball not to mention someone on the right side of the OL who can block.

  • Robbie S

    I wouldn’t mind a QB in the 1st, a WR in the 2nd, a CB in the 3rd, and a RG in the 3rd at all.

    Even if Josh Gordon comes back and lights it up next week, we can’t rely on just him and Cameron.

  • Robbie S

    I can’t help but, remember what happened to Marcus Bernard and how he is lucky to be alive after a speeding accident. Now Greg Little shows no concern for something that happened to a teammate of his by doing the same thing.

    This guy is a moron.

  • mgbode

    I only care about getting the QB correct. Do that and everything else will fall into place.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    I like your thought pattern but lets remember we’re talking about the Cleveland Browns here. In other words, it ain’t gonna happen.

    Gordon returning will help but will it be dramatic enough stay tuned. Clearly he’s needed. Little had two games to step up and instead he stepped out. Good riddance. I’d say Gordon, Cameron and Bess. If I was the OC I’d be crossing Bess and Cameron all day long. Gordon can go long, deep ins, deep outs etc but he’d be all over the place. Wide, in the slot, backfield I mean everywhere.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    What is littering?

  • JHop

    Take your pick between Marquis Lee (USC) and Sammy Watkins (Clemson). Lee could end up being a top 10 selection, but neither are surefire picks.

  • Jay

    Greg Little = Braylon Edwards v2.0 (minus the “you hate me ’cause I played for that team up north”)

  • cynosurescence

    Add to the list of things that Greg Little can’t catch: a break.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    It’s only fitting then that Derek Anderson 2.0 Brandon Weeden be throwing him the ball.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Little couldn’t catch a cold!

  • The_Matt_Of_Akron

    In all fairness, I probably wouldn’t stop on Elm at 1:00 am either.

    That’s because I would still be in Berea, hitting those Jugs machines after such a sorry showing.
