Saints Claim QB Joe Callahan Off Waivers From Packers

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that the Saints have claimed QB Joe Callahan off of waivers from the Packers on Friday.

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 waived him on Thursday to free up a roster spot.

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.
