Talented former Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway has found himself in more trouble, this time testing positive for marijuana at the NFL combine, according to ESPN. The latest transgression could leave the talented player undrafted with the NFL Draft starting Thursday.

 

Callaway's new agent of only two weeks, Malki Kawa, claims Tuesday that it was for a diluted sample. A diluted sample is treated as a positive test result, according to the league's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse.

 

His former agent, Melvin Bratton, parted ways following the positive test.

Though Callaway claimed to have turned the corner, this latest hit adds to his reputation as a problem off the field.

 

Callaway was suspended for the 2016 offseason as UF investigated a sexual assault accusation against him, for which he was later cleared. Callaway was then suspended for all of 2017, as part of the Gators' credit-card fraud scandal, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

 

In two seasons at Florida, the Miami native grabbed 89 passes for 1,399 yards and seven scores.
