Move over, Joakim Noah! Antonio Callaway is coming for most embarrassing Florida Gator of the week.
This may come to a shock for a lot of you, but the former Florida receiver is in trouble again. In his time in Gainesville, he racked up a rap sheet that includes credit card fraud, sexual assault and marijuana possession.
Tuesday night, just two days prior to the NFL draft, news broke that the troubled receiver had a diluted drug test at the NFL combine.
A talented player teams have been doing homework on is #Florida WR Antonio Callaway. Through his agent, Callaway confirmed his drug test sample at the NFL Combine came back diluted. Callaway has told those close to him he was over-hydrated and will address the issue with teams.

Allow me to translate his “over-hydration.” He knew he had to take a drug test, couldn’t stop smoking weed for long enough to let the weed get out of system, so he spent the 24 hours before the test trying to chug water to wash away the drugs from his system. It’s a tale as old as time.
Callaway has somehow bypassed Percy Harvin for off the field issues, and Percy was beating his whipping on his team’s ass, both players and coaches.
The talent has always been there for the speedy wide receiver who once made me want to die in 2015. But he’s already on strike four. Sure, the marijuana possession and this latest failed drug test isn’t *that* big of a deal for NFL teams, but combined with the credit card fraud and sexual assault, I’d imagine many teams have him completely off of their big board.
For reference, Tyrann Mathieu fell to the third round. And that was just for marijuana.
Callaway has New England Patriots written all over him. They did draft Aaron Hernandez, who was a talented player with a couple of red flags.
