Do You Believe Jordan Addison’s Suspicious Excuse For Driving 85 MPH Over Speed Limit??

On the dawn of the start of Vikings training camp, rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison found himself in trouble with the law after being cited for speeding and reckless driving.

According to ESPN, the incident occurred when he was caught driving a ridiculous 140 miles per hour in a 55-mph zone.

The 21-year-old Addison, who was selected as the #23 overall pick in April’s NFL Draft, was behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Urus, described as a “super sport” SUV, when State Patrol officers engaged him for a traffic stop in St. Paul.

The police report revealed that Addison’s vehicle was speeding a shocking 85 mph above the limit on Interstate 94. Officers issued him a citation for the violation.

You might be wondering why someone would feel the need to speed 85 miles per hour over the speed limit.. Well, we got our answer – and it’s a very suspicious one. 

The police report stated that Addison claimed to be driving at such a high speed because his dog was experiencing an emergency at home.

The Vikings responded to the incident with a cautious statement: “We are aware of last night’s traffic incident involving Jordan Addison and are gathering additional information.”

Despite the citation, Addison reported to training camp alongside the rest of Minnesota’s rookie class on Sunday. He released a statement on the matter.

“Yesterday morning I made a mistake and used poor judgment. I recognize and own that. I am going to learn from this and not repeat the behavior. I am truly sorry.”

He had opted out of participating in the Vikings organized team activities and minicamp practices earlier this offseason due to an undisclosed injury.

Nonetheless, he did take part in the rookie minicamp and is expected to play a significant role as the #2 receiver opposite star wideout Justin Jefferson.

With veteran receiver Adam Thielen’s departure, the first-round pick from the University of Southern California has been widely projected to step into a crucial role within Minnesota’s offense.

Fortunately, no one was hurt during the speeding incident. Hopefully the situation will prove to be a teaching lesson for Addison.

Having said that, are you buying his excuse that his speeding had anything to do with his dog?
