Adam Schefter: Antonio Callaway tested positive for marijuana at combine

Former Florida Gators wide receiver Antonio Callaway just can’t seem to get out of his own way.

After spending a year away from football due to his involvement in a credit card fraud case, Callaway declared for the NFL Draft. Callaway was actually a star at the combine and preached his maturity after several issues while at Florida.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

Callaway’s new agent Malki Kawa stated that the positive test was for a diluted sample.

If the failed test proves true, many teams will likely pass on the skilled wideout. Prior to last season, Callaway was projected as a mid-first round pick. Now it seems more likely that Callaway won’t hear his name called at all.

Callaway has had multiple instances of marijuana use, a sexual assualt case (which he was cleared from), and the credit card fraud case during his three year tenure in Gainesville.

The NFL Draft begins Thursday and runs through Saturday. Stay with The Gator Chomp Blog for all the latest.
