Rumor: Antonio Callaway could make sense for Packers

Antonio Callaway

Things never quite worked out for Antonio Callaway in Cleveland this season, as the Browns waived the wideout on Thursday.

So, who could Callaway end up with?

Jason B. Hirschhorn of Sports Illustrated notes the Green Bay Packers as a possibility, saying that Callaway could be worth a flier if the Packers believe another wideout could help their offense.

Of course, that’s if Callaway is even able to play, as Callaway is facing his second drug-related suspension of the year. He is appealing it, but based on the fact that he was already hit with a four-game ban at the beginning of the season, this obviously does not spell good news for the youngster.

Callaway logged just eight catches for 89 yards with the Browns this year in a season where many expected him to potentially have a breakout campaign after a solid rookie year in 2018 in which he caught 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns.

The 22-year-old was always going to be fighting for the No. 3 receiver role with Rashard Higgins, but Callaway’s offseason miscues made Freddie Kitchens’ decision very easy, and now, he is without team.

Cleveland selected Callaway, who played his collegiate football at the University of Florida, in the fourth round (105th pick overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Another club will surely give him another shot, as there is no denying Callaway’s talent, but it remains to be seen when that happens, and how much Callaway will be eligible to help if and when it does.
