Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Trent Cole Receives Multiple Speeding Tickets On Drive to Camp

According to his tweets, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Trent Cole received multiple speeding tickets while driving to Eagles’ training camp at Lehigh University this afternoon.

Cole’s first tweet, at 1:16 pm, says: “Just got my second speeding ticket ever. $ 148 on my way to the plane to get back for camp.”

Then 22 minutes later, Cole tweeted: “Just got my second two minutes later.”

He also added: “The zones change quick and I’m on a four lane highway,” as well as “K well that makes that three for me ever”.

His final tweet was “I owe $348 now wasted money.”

What I actually think that we, as Philadelphia Eagles fans, should do is take up a collection and see if we can find a way to pay Trent back for the traffic citations that he received while driving back to camp this afternoon.

No, just kidding. I find it very humorous that Cole got a pair of speeding tickets in a five-minute span. I’d be willing to bet that he’ll be the subject of a number of jokes by teammates at training camp. After all, he did announce the fines to the world via Twitter, and he didn’t have to do that.

The $348 will make absolutely no dent in Cole’s bank account. The two speeding tickets on his driving record aren’t fun but maybe next time he gets pulled over by a cop, he can announce that he is two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Trent Cole, and they’ll let him go without a ticket.
