Wide receiver Antonio Callaway set big goals of 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns for the 2019 season, but his coaches with the Browns don’t feel that the second-year player did enough work ahead of camp to put himself in good position to reach them.

Callaway has been running with the reserves for most of camp and his condition when he reported may be the reason why he wasn’t with the first team. Head coach Freddie Kitchens and offensive coordinator Todd Monken both said in Thursday press conferences that Callaway reported to camp out of shape.

That helped Rashard Higgins and Jaelen Strong get ahead of him in the pecking order, but things appear to be brightening for Callaway. Both coaches said that Callaway had his best day of practice on Thursday after working hard to get himself into the proper condition.

Callaway caught 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns during his rookie season.

  1. Cleveland finds a coachh the team will play for and shake the lazy Dazy play of the last 10 years, They have all the talent in the world! Clevelands drafted how many players in the top 40 over the 12 years or so? How many 1st do they have?

  2. Considering the strong correlation between unreliable people acting in an unreliable ways, the equally strong correlation between certain teams drafting unreliable people in mind blowing.

  3. callaway will be fine folks. quit getting your head in pairs of knickers. the browns are gonna reign supreme this season. and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

  4. I watched many Florida Gator football games. If Callaway can keep his head on straight, he can be a potent offensive weapon.

  5. “the browns are gonna reign supreme this season. and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.”

    Hilarious. I think the Pats, Chiefs, Chargers and quite a few other teams will have “something to do about it”

    You hit Foxboro late in October when the Pats will be hitting on all cylinders. I doubt you’ll be going home with a win.

  6. Big surprise. Maybe this is his way of holding out to get more money. This guy should be happy he has a job and show up in shape. I just don’t understand these guys. Their physical conditioning has a direct bearing on their performance. Yet somehow some of these guys show up out of shape. It’s called not being a professional. Look at Jerry Rice. Why was he so good? Because he worked so hard in the off-season. You’d think players could learn something from him. Unfortunately, guys like Callaway will never learn.

  7. This bozo had red flags all over him before the draft and last year was given chances as a rookie by Cleveland and this is how he decides to reward their (mistaken) faith in him. They would be wise to just cut him now.

  8. You hit Foxboro late in October when the Pats will be hitting on all cylinders. I doubt you’ll be going home with a win.

    This is probably the most interesting game to me. The browns will be coming off a bye week while the pats are playing on Monday Night the week before.. it’s like the league are giving the Browns the best possible advantage against the Pats that week.
