Ex-NFL Player Drug Bust

5 POUNDS OF MOLLY

... Cops Say

EXCLUSIVE

Former NFL wide receiver Reche Caldwell had nearly 5 POUNDS of the drug MDMA in his possession when he was arrested this week ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports

Just to put it into perspective ... the street price for MDMA (or "Molly") can usually run up to $80 per gram on the street ... which is roughly $2,240 per ounce ... which is $35,840 per pound. 

So, for you math geniuses out there ... Reche's alleged stash is worth around $179,200. 

That's a lot of drugs. 

As we previously reported, the 35-year-old was arrested in Tampa for possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $2k. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

In California if you get caught with 5lb of ANY drug you will be denied bail. Plus the Mexican gangbangers on the yard will want to have some words with you.

SAD STORY. SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL EX-NFL PLAYERS AND ALL SPORTS STARS THAT WHEN YOU GO INTO THE DRUG GAME, ITS NOT THE SPORTS WORLD YOUR FROM, PEOPLE SNITCH BECAUSE OF WHO YOU USE TO BE AND STILL ARE. I GET WHY THEY DO IT!!!! THEY ARE USE TO QUICK MONEY AND THE PRO SPORTS LEAGUSE HAVENT MADE IT MANDATORY LIKE THEY DO TRAINING AT TIMES TO ATTEND CLASSES ON FINANCES AFTER ITS OVER AS A PRO AND DURING THERE TIMES IN THE SPOTLIGHT. MOST ARENT LIKE SHAQ AND BOOMER ESIASON, THEY WONT BE ANALYST FOR MILLIONS PER YEAR. CLEARLY THIS MAN NEEDED THE $ TO MAINTAIN WHAT IM SURE HE ALREADY HAD BUT, THE COLLEGES DONT MAKE THESE MEN LEARN A CRAFT, THEY JUST GIVE THE OPPORTUNITY. FOR ALL AGAINST MAKING KIDS ATTEND COLLEGE FOR MORE THAN 1 OR 2 YEARS, HERES THE RESULT. NO EDUCATION AND NO BIG TIME STAR EQUALS WHAT SADLY HAPPENED TO RECHE AND MANY LIKE HIM. IN SPORTS WORLDWIDE, HOW MANY STARS ARE HOUSEHOLD NAMES PERCENTAGE WISE? MAYBE 1 PERCENT OR LESS. HOW MANY MAKE ENOUGH TO RETIRE WORLDWIDE IN PRO SPORTS? MAYBE 1 PERCENT OR LESS? IM GUESSING SO THE REST NEED A CAREER AFTERWARD JUST LIKE ALL ENTERTAINMENT FIELDS LIKE ACTING AND MUSIC AND DANCING. NOT ALL WILL BE DENZEL OR TOM HANKS OR MERYL STREEP. NOT ALL WILL BE BLESSED TO BECOME EMINEM OR MISSY ELLIOT OR PHARRELL! SOMEONE NEEDS TO OFFER FREE CLASSES TO ALL THESE PEOPLE WHO ARENT ON THE HGUE STARS LEVEL BEFORE ITS YOU THERE ROBBING(THIS ISNT MEANT TO BE MEAN NOR A JOKE, I SAY THIS WITH CONCERN AND HUMILITY)! HOPE RECHE RECOVERS AND GETS HIS LIFE ON TRACK, MAYBE A COACHING JOB IN THE NFL. SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY I WAS WATCHING HIM AS A PATRIOT AND REDSKIN AMONG OTHER TEAMS LIKE THE CHARGERS. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP RECHE AND CLEAN UP YOUR LIFE, IM CHEERING FOR YOU!!!! SINCERELY, A HUMAN WHOSE ALSO MADE BAD DECISIONS AND WANTS THE BEST FOR ALL MANKIND, EVEN THOSE WHO HATE ME!!! LGNM
