Callahan signed with the Eagles last year but was waived at the end of the preseason. The 25-year-old has spent most of his time on practice squads since going undrafted in 2016, but did make once game appearance in 2017 with Green Bay.
Callahan was waived by the Eagles on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Callahan was released alongside fellow quarterback Christian Hackenberg. The Eagles' quarterback room is now made up of Carson Wentz, Nick Foles and Nate Sudfeld, with no confirmation of who will start under center Week 1 against the Falcons. Having spent the majority of his career on practice squads, Callahan will become an unrestricted free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Callahan has spent the bulk of his professional career on practice squads, but was able to get on the field for his NFL debut with Green Bay in 2017, completing five of seven passes for 11 yards against the Lions in Week 17. He was ultimately cut by the Packers at the end of April and will now head to Philadelphia, where he could battle for the No. 3 job behind Carson Wentz (knee) and Nick Foles.
The Packers released Callahan on Monday.
An undrafted free agent, the Division III product fared well enough during the 2016 preseason to make the Packers' final 53-man roster. After he was waived in mid-October of that year, Callahan proceeded to spend time with the Saints and Browns, but landed back in Green Bay by season's end. In 2017, he alternated between the Packers' practice squad and 53-man while also spending time as a street free agent. Callahan finally got his shot on the field Week 17, completing five of seven passes for a measly 11 yards. The offseason addition of DeShone Kizer likely made Callahan expendable as general manager Brian Gutekunst rounds out the 90-man roster afforded NFL teams in the offseason.
Callahan has spent most of his young career in Green Bay, either on the active roster or practice squad. The Packers will head into offseason activities with four quarterbacks, as Callahan will compete with Deshone Kizer and Brett Hundley for the backup role.
