Packers Re-Sign 9 ERFAs Including WR Geronimo Allison & QB Joe Callahan

The Green Bay Packers officially re-signed nine exclusive rights free agents on Tuesday including WR Geronimo Allison and QB Joe Callahan.

The full list of players re-signed includes:

  1. WR Geronimo Allison
  2. QB Joe Callahan
  3. DB Donatello Brown
  4. WR Michael Clark
  5. FB Joe Kerridge
  6. G Justin McCray
  7. G Adam Pankey
  8. G Lucas Patrick

Allison, 24, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad and eventually promoted to their active roster after Green Bay sustained some injuries at receiver.

The Packers brought Allison back on a one-year, $615,000 exclusive rights last year.

In 2017, Allison appeared in 15 games for the Packers and caught 23 passes for 253 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Callahan, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Wesley College back in May of last year. He was able to make the 53-man roster as the team’s No. 3 quarterback coming out of the preseason but was later cut loose.

Callahan had brief stints with the Saints and Browns before returning to the Packers during the 2016 season.

Green Bay cut Callahan loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players and he was later signed to their practice squad. After Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury, the Packers promoted Callahan to their active roster.

In 2017, Callahan appeared in one game for the Packers and completed five of seven pass attempts for 11 yards and no touchdowns of interceptions.
