The arrested receiver hasn't played in the NFL since 2007 when he played in eight games for the Washington Redskins. The former second-round pick spent six seasons in the league after being drafted by the Chargers in 2002.
Besides San Diego and Washington, Caldwell also spent a season in New England, where he caught 61 passes for 760 yards and four touchdowns from Tom Brady.
