Jeremy Lane, a free agent cornerback who has played his entire six-year NFL career with the Seahawks, plead guilty to reckless driving in King County District Court Monday for a Jan. 14 arrest on suspicion of DUI.

The plea is for a lesser charge than the original driving under the influence. He will be sentenced May 4.

Lane, 27, was released by the Seahawks earlier this month. He was drafted by Seattle in 2012 and remained with the team through the 2017 season, though Seattle attempted to trade him to Houston last year in a deal that was nullified due to a failed physical by Lane.

According to the police report from the Jan. 14 arrest, Lane was pulled over after a Washington State Patrol trooper saw his Dodge Charger changing multiple lanes without signaling and driving 80 mph with the hazard lights flashing on I-90 between Seattle and Mercer Island.

Lane registered a blood-alcohol of .039 after agreeing to take a breathalyzer test. The trooper also observed “a strong odor of burned marijuana” when he approached Lane’s car. Per the police report, Lane admitted to using marijuana that night, stating that he was “more high than anything.”
