The NFL offseason hasn’t officially started in the NFL and players are already on their worst behavior.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Lerentee McCray was charged with a second-degree felony on Sunday after reports stated he made an “obscene hand gesture” towards a police officer. Then fled a traffic stop.
McCray is said to have reached speeds of 100 mph while swerving across three lanes trying to evade police. Per the Fruitland Park Police Department, Lerentee McCray was clocked going 88 mph in a 50-mph zone. They say when an officer attempted to pull the Jaguars LB over, McCray flashed the middle finger and took off.
The 31-year-old was eventually arrested and booked into jail before eventually being released on $5,000 bond.
The Jaguars released a statement saying, “We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information.” Adding, “We have no further comment at this time.”
Not a good look for him as McCray is set to become an unrestricted free agent this March.
In 12 games played in 2021, the seven-year NFL vet recorded 11 tackles and a tackle for loss.
