The Minnesota Vikings have had a lot of headlines surrounding their wide receiver room this offseason with Justin Jefferson. They’re about to have many more after a report came out regarding rookie Jordan Addison.
Minnesota Vikings gathering info on Jordan Addison’s incident
According to Kevin Seifert with ESPN, Addison was cited by the Minnesota State Patrol Thursday morning for an incident that occurred on a freeway near St. Paul. Addison was alleged to have been clocked by the officer for driving 140 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone. Addison was not arrested:
Addison, the No. 23 overall pick of the 2023 draft, was not arrested. But the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
In a statement, the Vikings said: ” We are aware of last night’s traffic incident involving Jordan Addison and are gathering additional information.
The citation isn’t a good look for Addison just days before Vikings training camp is set to begin. However, it’s important to note that he’s innocent until proven guilty.
Addison was brought in to help Kirk Cousins and the passing game this season. The Vikings released Dalvin Cook with the expectation that they would use the freed-up cap space to extend Jefferson. Jefferson has two years left on his contract, but it appears the league’s best wide receiver wants an early payday.
Addison’s public citation adds to the drama in that unit.
