Marquise Brown #5 of the Baltimore Ravens warms up before their preseason game against the Washington Football Team at FedExField on August 28, 2021 in Landover, Maryland. Brown, now with the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested yesterday for “criminal speeding” in Arizona.

When you buy a luxury car, you put the highest quality gasoline in the tank because premium car engines are only as good as the fuel they burn. Burning 87 octane in a supercar you just paid top dollar for is a colossal waste of cash and fuel.

This is a story about football.

Specifically, it’s a story about an NFL team, the Arizona Cardinals, who just spent $230.5 million on a quarterback, Kyler Murray, in hopes he’ll get them to the Super Bowl. But Murray’s best weapon, his high-octane fuel, wide receiver Deandre Hopkins, is suspended for the first six games of next season. So the Cardinals this offseason opted to fill their offense with a slightly less explosive option by signing former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown. Brown, they thought, would at least keep the car running smoothly as Murray’s first choice in Hopkins’ absence, and when the latter returned, the team could hit the gas.

The problem is Brown, in a nod to his football player-turned-rapper Antonio Brown, took that metaphor too literally, getting arrested for criminal speeding Wednesday after he was clocked at 126 miles per hour on a highway near Phoenix. . . For clarity, our sister site Deadspin reports that in Arizona, he has to do at least 85 to get bracelets instead of just getting a ticket in Arizona and Marquise Brown logged 41 miles on top of that. Criminal speeding in the state comes with a maximum of 30 days in the hoosegow and a $500 fine.

In theory, Marquise Brown’s arrest could leave the Cardinals’ offense running normally to start the season, should the NFL decide to impose its own discipline on Brown, who should already know he doesn’t require a player to face a criminal charge, much more. least one sentence. The league’s personal conduct policy allows a player to be suspended if he engages in “conduct that poses a genuine danger to the safety and welfare of another person.” If he were suspended, it would probably be for a short time since Marquise Brown, unlike his famous cousin, has had nothing to do with the league’s disciplinary apparatus in his career.

Antonio Brown hasn’t played an NFL game since he stripped off his jersey and walked off the field in the Buccaneers’ penultimate regular-season game of the 2021 season on Jan. 2. Former Pittsburgh Steelers, Las Vegas Raiders, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver who was last seen doing whatever it takes on stage at the Rollin’ Loud music festival paid a $426 fine for driving his Porsche over 100 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone north of Pittsburgh in 2019.

Basically, nervous routes, soft hands and lead feet should run in the family.
