Browns Waive WR Antonio Callaway, Activate OL Drew Forbes From IR


The Cleveland Browns announced Thursday that they’ve waived WR Antonio Callaway and activated OL Drew Forbes from the injured reserve list. 

This comes after Callaway was benched for Sunday’s game against the Bills for disciplinary reasons.

Callaway finished serving his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy before being activated last month.

Callaway, 22, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2018. He agreed to a four-year, $3,177,856 contract that included a $717,856 signing bonus. 

Callaway stands to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.  

In 2019, Callaway has appeared in four games and caught eight passes for 89 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Forbes, 22, is a former sixth-round pick by the Browns in this year’s draft out of Southeast Missouri State. He is in the first year of his four-year, $2.7 million rookie contract.

Cleveland placed him on injured reserve coming out of the preseason due to a knee injury before designating him to a return a few weeks ago. 

Forbes has yet to appear in an NFL game.
