QB Joe Callahan Joins Eagles

With Carson Wentz still rehabbing, the Eagles added another veteran to the quarterback room signing Joe Callahan to a two-year deal on Monday. Nick Foles, Nate Sudfeld, and Callahan will split the practice reps through the spring.

The Absecon, New Jersey native has spent time with the Packers, Saints, and Browns since originally joining the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2016 out of Wesley College.

He made his NFL regular-season debut in the Packers' 2017 finale, completing 5-of-7 passes for 11 yards. The 6-1, 216-pound Callahan was the primary backup to Brett Hundley after Aaron Rodgers injured his collarbone.

In two preseasons with the Packers, Callahan posted a 61.5 completion percentage while throwing for 611 yards and three touchdowns against no interceptions.

At Wesley in Dover, Delaware, Callahan won the Gagliardi Trophy, which is Division III's version of the Heisman, in 2015. He became the first quarterback in Division III history to throw for over 5,000 yards in a season to go along with 55 touchdowns that year.

Callahan led Holy Spirit High School in Absecon to a New Jersey State Championship with a perfect 12-0 record as a senior.
