What a disappointment Callaway was this season after a very nice rookie season. Callaway started the season on the bench and never got his groove back. Reports are coming out that the team simply had too many issues with Callaway. The team obviously felt it was best to cut their losses with the receiver. Callaway has talent but has had some character concerns since college. A team will likely snag him at some point but he likely clears waivers before a team signs him.
Freddie Kitchens says he’ll “definitely” stick with WR Antonio Callaway against Seattle after awful season debut against 49ers.
Antonio Callaway has the athletic prowess to be one of the best receivers in the game, but his mistakes usually outweigh the good he brings to the offense. Rashard Higgins might not be as dynamic, but there is a good chance he will take Callaway's No. 3 spot once he is healthy enough to play.
Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway returns this week from a four-game suspension, and it’s coming at a good time.
Fellow receiver Jarvis Landry is in the concussion protocol and it’s unclear whether he’ll practice this week or play on Monday night against the 49ers. That means Callaway may be asked to play a significant role in the offense in his first game back. Browns coach Freddie Kitchens thinks Callaway will be ready.
Last year Callaway was the Browns’ No. 2 wide receiver, behind Landry. This year he’ll be bumped down the depth chart with Odell Beckham in town, but if Landry is out, Callaway may well be the No. 2 receiver again in his first game back, the story all said.
Cleveland Browns WR Antonio Callaway has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
As Rapoport notes, this likely explains why Callaway has been running with the reserves during training camp up to this point. After a terrific rookie season, Callaway has taken a major step back . First, it was being behind Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry and now he will miss the first quarter of the season. Tough to buy too much stock into Callaway considering all the other talent Baker Mayfield has to throw to. He’s worth a flyer, but not much lore than that at this stage.
