Cardinals Marquise Brown Pleads Guilty To Criminal Speeding Charge

Written by Tony Ghaul

Arizona Cardinals WR Marquise Brown pleaded guilty to an excessive speeding charge on Wednesday, six months after cops accused the NFL wideout of going 126 MPH in a 65 MPH zone, per @TMZ_Sports.

Brown faces up to 30 days in jail and/or a year of probation. He must pay a $500 fine. TMZ Sports notes Brown’s initial plan was to plea not guilty, but he had second thoughts.

Arizona laws say anything over 20 mph above a posted speed limit is criminal speeding. It is a misdemeanor.

Brown had 67 catches for 709 yards and three touchdowns for the Cardinals this year. Arizona finished 4-13 in a disappointing season after making the playoffs in 2021. They fired Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury the day after the regular season ended.

Brown was acquired from the Baltimore Ravens in a draft-day trade that sent the Cardinals’ first-round pick (23rd overall pick) to Baltimore in exchange for Brown and the 100th overall pick.
