Former Chargers and Patriots wide out Reche Caldwell is having more problems with the law. TMZ reports that the one-time Gator was arrested earlier this week in Florida for allegedly trying to sell the party drug Ecstasy.
Caldwell was arrested north of Busch Gardens in Tampa, per local media, and booked for possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $2,000. Caldwell was also arrested earlier this year for running an illegal gambling operation. All he needs is prostitution to qualify as a full blown racketeer.
Everyone needs a dream in life. Caldwell’s used to be football, now it’s being a one-man criminal empire.
In his former life, Caldwell was drafted by San Diego out of Florida in the second round of the 2002 draft. He spent four years with the Chargers, earning the nickname “Ricochet” for his tendency to let balls bounce off his hands, before moving on to the Patriots and then the Redskins.
He last drew an NFL paycheck as a member of the Rams’ practice squad in 2008. Caldwell’s brother Andre currently plays in the NFL for the Denver Broncos.
