TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Former NFL and University of Florida player Donald "Reche" Caldwell has been arrested by Tampa police on charges of operating an illegal gambling house and bookmaking.

Police say Caldwell was one of three leaders of the operation. Five other men are facing a variety of charges including probation violations, possession of a control substance and illegal gambling.

The 34-year-old Caldwell was a standout wide receiver at Florida and was chosen in the second round of the 2002 NFL draft by the San Diego Chargers. He also played for the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins. His younger brother Andre Caldwell is a receiver for the Denver Broncos.

Jail records show Caldwell is free on $4,000 bail in the gambling case. Court records Monday didn't list an attorney for him.
