Cardinals coach on Marquise Brown’s speeding arrest: ‘Can’t be doing that’

GLENDALE — The Arizona Cardinals were hit with an off-the-field distraction Wednesday morning in the form of wide receiver Hollywood Brown’s arrest on criminal speeding charges.

It marks back-to-back offseasons with a Cardinals player earning a speeding arrest. In June 2021, then-rookie Zaven Collins was arrested for reckless driving and excessive speeding in Scottsdale.

“Unfortunate incident, can’t be doing that,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Thursday of Brown’s arrest. “We want to get him back and get him back involved.

“We definitely address it,” the head coach added. “Whenever you have that sort of caravan coming from one place to the next, you got to be smart and you got to follow the rules and obey the laws. Hopefully, we don’t have any more incidents.”

Brown was arrested at 7:05 a.m. heading southbound on Loop 101 while driving 126 mph in the HOV lane, more than 60 mph over the speed limit of 65.

He was released under his own recognizance later in the day. His next hearing is set for Aug. 23 at 9 a.m., the same day the Cardinals travel to Tennessee.

“He’s never had any issues and obviously he knows he’s got to be better than that and he will be moving forward,” Kingsbury said when asked about the pair’s conversation after the arrest.

Brown, who began training camp on the active non-football injury list with a hamstring issue, was back among his teammates on Thursday but only participated in the stretching portion of practice.

According to Kingsbury, the plan is still to get Brown into individual work by the end of the week before having him full-go on Monday.
