Antonio Callaway, WR
Antonio Callaway almost found himself on the stock down list after a first half that was remembered for drops.
Considering the legal trouble he found himself in during the past week, it wasn’t how the former Florida Gator wanted to debut.
But Callaway rebounded in a big way, making a beautiful catch near the sideline in the third quarter from Baker Mayfield on third down.
The refs initially ruled Callaway was out of bounds, but upon further review, it was obvious Callaway kept his feet in bounds.
Callaway then put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter taking a pass on a slant route from Mayfield 54-yards to the house for six points.
It was against a lesser defense, but Callaway’s game breaking skills were on full display.
If you didn’t know why the Browns drafted a player with such a troubled past, you understand now.
You’re probably also aware of why the organization is happy to believe it was Callaway’s friends who left the marijuana under his car seat.
Heck after a game like that, I’ll believe it, too!
Calloway finished with three catches for 87 yards.
His second-half pushed probably helped him stay ahead of Rashard Higgins on the depth chart. The third-year veteran caught four of five targets for 66 yards and made important catches on both of the Browns’ two touchdown drives.
