During the NFL offseason, not hearing any news about a player is usually good news.

Unfortunately, the Minnesota Vikings got some bad news regarding first-round pick Jordan Addison.

Addison still has to report to his first NFL training camp and he’s already in trouble.

On Thursday it was reported that Addison had been convicted of negligent driving after clocking 140 mph in a 55 mph zone.

It was news that no one wanted to hear, especially for a player who had yet to play an NFL game.

Addison was selected in the first round because of his play on the field, but also because he had never been in trouble outside of it.

According to Adam Schefter, Edison issued a statement apologizing for his actions.

Fortunately, no one was hurt during the incident.

The Vikings need to make sure nothing like this happens again.

He’s heavily invested in Edison and expects he and Justin Jefferson to be a 1-2 punch.

It will be interesting to see if any less discipline comes from the NFL.

He is known for taking strict action against players who break the law.

But this is mostly on a case-by-case basis, depending on the violation.

Overall, this is a terrible way for him to start his NFL career.

Addison will have to make sure he is on his best behavior for the rest of this season.
