BEDFORD, OH (WOIO) -

Former Browns Quarterback Bernie Kosar was due in court Monday to answer to drunk driving charges, but his appearance was postponed until April 28.

No reason was given for the delay.

According to arresting documents, the former NFL star was stopped in Solon last September for speeding. Officials tell 19 Action News he was going 74mph in a 50mph construction zone with workers on the job site.

The officer says when he asked Kosar for his license, Kosar handed over two credit cards. The officer also noted a strong odor of alcohol coming from Kosar's person. He also failed the field sobriety tests.

Kosar reportedly told police he could not perform the sobriety tests because of multiple knee and ankle surgeries because "his line couldn't block." Kosar was the quarterback for the Browns from 1985 to 1993.
