Mary Kay Cabot reports that Browns WR Antonio Callaway just had his car shipped to Cleveland from Florida and hadn’t used it in a while, but others had.
According to Cabot, Callaway didn’t realize there was marijuana in his car.
According to Grossi, Callaway was stopped in his vehicle for a traffic violation and cited for both marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license.
Police observed Callaway’s vehicle failing to yield to oncoming traffic while turning and he was stopped. The officer found “a small amount” of marijuana under the driver’s seat, which was small enough to be regarded as a minor misdemeanor under Ohio law.
Callaway was recently promoted to the team’s first-string offense and has a checkered past, so this is clearly not a good look so soon in his NFL career.
It’s worth mentioning that Callaway produced a diluted drug test sample at NFL Scouting Combine.
Cleveland’s depth at receiver was already in question after they traded away former first-round WR Corey Coleman for a future seventh-round pick earlier this week.
It will be interesting to see if the talk of Dez Bryant signing with the Browns picks up in the coming days/weeks.
Callaway, 21, was selected with the No. 105 overall pick in the fourth round of this year’s draft by the Browns. Cleveland actually traded up in round four to get him.
During his college career at Florida, Callaway caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards receiving (15.7 YPC) to go along with seven touchdowns. He also rushed for eight yards and a touchdown over the course of 26 games.
