Green Bay Packers Add New Jersey Quarterback to Roster
When superstar QB Aaron Rodgers was injured this past Sunday against the Vikings, the Packers were left with just one QB on their roster. When Brett Hundley was promoted to starter, the team needed to find a new backup.
Joe Callahan was born in Cape May, went to Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, and played college ball at Wesley College in Delaware - and he's now the backup quarterback for the Pack.
The Packers signed Callahan as an undrafted free agent in 2016, and earned a spot on the 53-man roster after a preseason where he threw for 499 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Packers released him in October of that year. The Saint claimed him the next day, but waived him a week later. The Browns claimed him two days after that and waived him after a month. The Packers picked him up again and signed him to the practice squad. After Rodgers went down indefinitely, Callahan was promoted to the active roster to back up Brett Hundley.
