Packers Officially Sign QB Joe Callahan To Practice Squad, Release WR Dez Stewart


The Green Bay Packers officially signed QB Joe Callahan to their practice squad and released WR Dez Stewart from the unit.

The Packers’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. TE Devon Cajuste 
  2. OLB Reggie Gilbert 
  3. G Lucas Patrick 
  4. WR Herb Waters 
  5. DT Brian Price
  6. QB Joe Callahan
  7. C Jacob Flores
  8. RB Brandon Burks
  9. DB Jermaine Whitehead
  10. LB Derrick Mathews


According to Kaitlin Sharkey, the Packers have re-signed QB Joe Callahan on Thursday after he officially cleared waivers on Wednesday.

  • Rob Demovsky confirms the report and adds that the Packers have signed him to their practice squad.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy previously expressed regret that Callahan was claimed and they weren’t able to sign him to their practice.

Callahan, 23, 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. He was able to make the 53-man roster as the team’s No. 3 quarterback coming out of the preseason.

The Packers elected to cut him loose and were hoping to sign him to their practice squad but the Saints wound up claiming him off of waivers. New Orleans also wound up in a roster crunch and cut Callahan loose back in October and he was once again claimed off waivers by the Browns.

Cleveland cut Callahan earlier in the week now that QB Robert Griffin III is close to returning.

During the preseason, Callahan threw for 499 yards while completing 61.4 percent of his passes to go along with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
