Former NFL wide receiver Reche Caldwell was arrested on Sunday for the third time this year, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Caldwell, 35, was charged with possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license. In May, he was charged with possession of a controlled substance for signing for a USPS package that contained 4.8 pounds of MDMA, according to CBSDC TV.

He was also charged with running an illegal gambling house and bookmaking in January.

Caldwell played six seasons in the NFL with San Diego, New England and Washington. During his career, he totaled 152 catches, 1,851 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. He was drafted by the Chargers with the 48th pick in the 2002 NFL draft, and played his last game in 2007 for Washington.
