Antonio Callaway gets another 4-game suspension

Multiple sources are reporting that Dolphins practice squad receiver Antonio Callaway has been given an additional four-game suspension for further violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Already facing a ban until week 4 of the 2020 season, Callaway would now not be eligible to return until week 8. It is unclear whether this will impact his future with the team.

Things had seemed to be going well for Callaway in Miami with head coach Brian Flores saying “We did a lot of work on Antonio. We felt it was an opportunity to add a talented player, and that’s what we did. We will work with him the next few weeks. When we can, we will work with him and we’ll see where it goes.”

Antonio Callaway’s struggles continue

Antonio Callaway originally nearly fell foul of the NFL soon after he was drafted when he was pulled over and officers smelled marijauna in the guy. Callaway claimed that it was a residual smell from the driver who shipped the car to him, and only received a warning.

Callaway started 11 games for the Cleveland Browns in his rookie season, catching 43 passes for 586 and 5 touchdowns. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL policy and was subsequently released after appearing in just 4 games for being late to meetings.

The Tampa Bay Vipers of the XFL signed Antonio Callaway in January, but he was soon placed on IR with a lower leg injury and was released when the league folded in April.

The Dolphins signed him to the practice squad on September 7th while he was still serving a 10 game suspension for another violation of the substance abuse policy.

The Dolphins have issues at the receiver position with DeVante Parker again being limited by niggling hamstring injuries to start the 2020 season, and depth having been an issue after the opt-outs of Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson.
