Antonio Callaway, at one point, was projected to be a first-round pick coming out of Florida but due to a team suspension, he missed the entire 2017 season. He had multiple off-field issues at Florida before entering the draft. Then at the combine, he failed a drug test which caused his draft stock to plummet. The Cleveland Browns took him in the fourth round.
In 2019, he was suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy and then during his first week back, he was benched for reportedly showing up late to team meetings. When the Browns decided to release Callaway, he was hit with a 10-game suspension for a repeat drug violation. He will be eligible to play for an NFL team in week 5 of the 2020 season.
So what is he doing in the mean time?
He's getting picked up by another football league...the XFL.
The Tampa Bay Vipers claimed the former Gators wide receiver and he will be able to play right away should he stay on the team.
The XFL season starts on February 8th and the Vipers play on February 9th in New York against the Guardians. Should Callaway still be on the team, his first game in the state of Florida will be February 22nd against the Houston Roughnecks.
