Florida QB ‘learned lesson’ after 105-mph speeding bust

Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson said he “learned my lesson” after being cited for driving 105 mph.

The Gators sophomore faces a court appearance next month for traveling more than 30 mph over the speed limit on April 4, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Addressing the incident for the first time Saturday, Richardson told Gators Online it was his first speeding ticket.

“I know I’m not perfect, but it was a mistake,” he said. “I was speeding. My mom always tells me to drive safe because I can not only hurt myself but I can hurt other people. I shouldn’t have done it and I can definitely say I learned my lesson.”

Richardson said he addressed the incident with his Gators teammates on Friday, promising he would “handle his business” and “do everything right from this point forward.”

The news of Richardson’s citation broke after his strong performance in Florida’s spring game Thursday night. He completed 18 of 25 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for a score.

A Gainesville, Fla., native, Richardson is expected to be the Gators’ No. 1 quarterback this season after Emory Jones entered the transfer portal.

Richardson completed 39 of 66 passes for 556 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions in 12 games during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. He has also rushed for 462 yards and three touchdowns.

Broncos RB Gordon charged with DUI, speeding

Broncos running back Melvin Gordon was charged late Tuesday night with driving under the influence and speeding in downtown Denver.

He allegedly was driving between 25 and 39 miles per hour over the speed limit.

Gordon is scheduled for a Nov. 13 court date, per court records.

“We are aware of the situation involving Melvin Gordon,” the Broncos said in a statement. “Our organization has been in communication with him and is in the process of gathering more details.”

The team had an unexpected bye after its initially scheduled game against New England was postponed until this Sunday following a positive COVID-19 test by a Patriots player.

Gordon, 27, could be in line for league discipline following Tuesday’s incident.

Signed to a two-year, $16 million deal this offseason, Gordon leads the Broncos in carries (65), yards rushing (281) and rushing touchdowns (three). The two-time Pro Bowl selection also has 11 catches for 45 yards and a score.

Gordon has rushed for 4,521 yards and 39 touchdowns and added 235 catches for 1,918 yards with 12 scores in 71 career games with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers (2015-19) and Broncos.
