Giants Hosted Four Free Agents Including QB Joe Callahan

According to Howard Balzer, the New York Giants brought in four free agents for workouts/visits on Monday including QB Joe Callahan.

The full list of tryouts for the Giants includes:

  1. QB Joe Callahan
  2. WR Bennie Fowler
  3. DE Myles Humphrey
  4. CB Ronald Zamort (Visit)

Of this group, the Giants signed Fowler to their active roster and added Humphrey and Zamort to their practice squad.

Callahan, 25, 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.

The Packers re-signed Callahan as an exclusive rights free agent during the offseason, but he was let go and later signed by the Eagles. Unfortunately, Callahan was among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

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.
