Former Pitt WR Jordan Addison Cited For Speeding and Reckless Driving



Minnesota State Patrol cited former Pitt wide receiver Jordan Addison for speeding and reckless driving early Thursday morning, according to a police report from the MSP.

Addison, who was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, was pulled over by police on I-94 in Saint Paul, Minnesota at 3 AM after he was accused of driving his Lamborghini Urus 140 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone.

According to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, the Vikings issued the following statement: “We are aware of last night’s traffic incident involving Jordan Addison and are gathering additional information.”

Minnesota State Patrol police report.

Addison spent two seasons at Pitt, finishing his career in Pittsburgh with 160 catches for 2,259 yards (14.1 yards per catch) and 21 touchdowns in just 24 games, and he won the Biletnikoff Award as the best wide receiver in college football in 2021 after he hauled in 100 catches for 1,593 yards (15.9 yards per catch) and 17 touchdowns.

Addison decided to transfer to USC in April of 2022, spending one season in Los Angeles and catching 59 passes for 875 yards (14.8 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns.

The Vikings selected him with the 23rd pick of the 2023 NFL Draft. Vikings rookies are scheduled to report to training camp next week.

I think you mean “former USC” WR

Uh oh… early success going to Addison’s head. Hopefully, he learns his lesson after this humiliating event. Else risk following the tragic Antonio Brown path.

He’s only Pitt because something sensationally bad occurred. Typical Pittsburgh journalism.
