Former Florida standout Antonio Callaway promoted to active NFL roster
A former Florida star wideout was promoted to an active NFL roster on Wednesday, as Antonio Callaway was promoted from the Miami Dolphins practice squad and could suit up for the Dolphins in the upcoming matchup against the Denver Broncos.
Callaway had some turbulent times off the field in Gainesville, and only appeared in games during the 2015 and 2016 seasons where he racked up nearly 1,400 yards receiving and eight total touchdowns.
A fourth-round pick by the Cleveland Browns, Callaway had a strong 2018 season in the NFL, catching 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns, but was suspended in 2019 for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
After being waived by the Browns, Callaway spent time in the XFL with the Tampa Bay Vipers before signing to the Dolphins’ practice squad early this season.
Off-the-field issues have clouded Callaway’s career to this point but could the talented former Gator set himself straight enough to be catching passes from Tua Tagovailoa this season?
