Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon could have paid a $187 fine for the speeding ticket he received in Ohio on May 25, but instead, the Pro Bowler has decided to fight it. Gordon has pleaded not guilty to the speeding violation, according to Berea Municipal Court online records

Gordon was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, but court records show that his lawyer, Gary A. Vick, appeared on his behalf on Tuesday and entered a not guilty plea. A new court date for Gordon has not been set. 

The 23-year-old was pulled over in Strongsville, Ohio for going 74 mph in a 60 mph zone. During the stop, officers found pot in Gordon's Mercedes and one of the passengers in Gordon's car ended up being cited for possession of marijuana.

That passenger, Terrell McKenzie, pleaded not guilty to the marijuana citation, according to Cleveland.com

The speeding is just a small blip when it comes to Gordon's recent problems. The Browns receiver is currently facing a possible one-year suspension from the NFL. Gordon has been participating ing Cleveland's offseason workout sessions as he waits to hear from the NFL on a possible punishment.
