Opposing cornerbacks better watch out: Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway has added some explosiveness to his game.
Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens revealed to Andrew Gribble of the team’s official website on May 16 that Callaway is more explosive than he was in his rookie year.
He is in good shape relative to what he was in last year during training camp. He has added some explosiveness.
He has been catching the ball really well. He is doing a good job.
Just like everybody else, he has to continue. It is what can you do for me tomorrow, not today; today is over.

Gribble says a better Antonio Callaway bodes well for a Cleveland team which finished 13th in total offense in the NFL in 2018 (5,900 yards).
After the Browns traded Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots, Callaway shouldered a heavier brunt of the offense. He finished the season with 43 catches, 586 receiving yards, and five touchdown receptions. He finished third on the team in receiving yards behind Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.
This year, though, Callaway will take a bit of a backseat, becoming the third option in an exciting Browns receiving corps which includes Odell Beckham, Jr. and Landry. With second-year quarterback Baker Mayfield in tow, Cleveland should light up its opponents in 2019.

Callaway gave Browns fans a taste of what he can do last season in his rookie year. Now that he’s added some explosiveness, expect him to take his game to a higher level in 2019.
