Just two days after the NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers cleared a roster spot by releasing back-up quarterback Joe Callahan.
The Packers were beginning to fill up the quarterbacks room at 1265 Lombardi Avenue. That’s with the team trading for Browns starting QB DeShone Kizer this offseason in a deal that sent Damarious Randall to Cleveland.
That’s in addition to Aaron Rodgers returning from injury, and his understudy Brett Hundley back for his fourth season.
Callahan this past season was the backup to Hundley after Rodgers broken collarbone took him out for most of the season.
In 2016 Callahan was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Wesley College, and has seen time on both the practice squad and active roster in Green Bay.
Green Bay has also signed undrafted free agent Tim Doyle out of Eastern Kentucky, according to multiple reports. The team has not officially announced that move.
