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.
