Gators WR Antonio Callaway cited for marijuana possession

Gators WR Antonio Callaway cited for marijuana possession

Florida receiver Antonio Callaway has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Callaway was forced to pay a fine of $301, and is still subject to disciplinary action by the university. With a tough season opener against MI in Arlington, Texas, many Gator and Wolverine fans are eager to see how McElwain handles the situation.

Cervone told the Orlando Sentinel that Callaway's agreement is standard operating procedure for a first-time offender cited for a small amount of marijuana.

Bell instead will make $12.1 million this season, the average of the five highest-paid running backs in the league. The deadline for Le'Veon Bell to sign a long-term deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers has come and gone.

UF's policy calls for a suspension for a second positive marijuana test. Callaway hasn't had one (to our knowledge), but he does have two public incidents.

He was suspended last spring amid sexual battery allegations. When police arrived stood by the vehicle, the smelled a strong odor of marijuana, and found seven grams of the substance in Callaway's pocket. Callaway admitted to smoking marijuana in those court documents, although he was eventually cleared of the allegation by a Title IX investigation. Police said the driver, Kendrick Williams, 40, also had marijuana. With 89 receptions totaling 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns, Callaway figured to be the go-to receiver for the Gators this season. Coach Jim McElwain hasn't said, and I don't expect him to say anything until the week of the game.
