More Browns woes: 2 players caught drag racing

6:49 PM ET

Cleveland Browns left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. and wide receiver Rashard Higgins were both cited for drag racing Tuesday morning.

“We are aware of the incident, will gather more information and handle this matter appropriately,” a team spokesman said.

The citation occurred in Westlake, Ohio, about 10 miles from the Browns’ practice facility.

According to the service report released by Westlake police, the two were pulled over just before 9:30 a.m. ET and were each written $124 tickets. Police also conducted a probable cause search in one of the vehicles for a suspected marijuana joint, according to the report. Police didn’t specify which vehicle had the suspected joint, and neither Higgins nor Willis was cited for it.

Police did not specify how fast either was driving.

Cleveland’s players were off Tuesday.

Wills, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, has started all but one game at left tackle for the Browns this season.

Higgins has emerged as a key target for quarterback Baker Mayfield late in the season.

On Tuesday evening, Higgins posted on Twitter that his “foot slipped,” in regard to the drag racing citation, before deleting the tweet.
