CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have waived wide receiver Antonio Callaway.
Callaway was a fourth-round pick in 2018 and appeared in four games this season.
He was benched last week after being late to the game.
NFL reporter Ian Rapoport said Callaway was allegedly suspended 10 games for another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but that wasn't the reason he was released.
Callaway has told those poised to administer the suspension that it stems from a tainted CBD product. The drug policy is usually very strict, though, about players knowing what they put in their bodies. https://t.co/DJmAPpubRP— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 14, 2019
Callaway missed the first four games of the season without pay for an unspecified violation of the league’s policy and program on substance abuse.
The team activated offensive lineman Drew Forbes from injured reserve to take Callaway's roster spot.
