Joe Callahan is a Saint. Great that he can train under Brees, but unfortunate for the Packers. I think this guy will be an NFL starter eventually.

I didn't think anyone would put in a waiver claim. I did expect Calahan to draw some interest after he cleared waivers, but hoped that he would decide to return to GB. I miscalculated, and wonder if TT did, too.

Keeping Ringo over Price also is a bit of a conundrum for me. With Guion and Clark ahead of Price, it makes sense to keep Ringo, but I am not at all sure that Ringo is the better player. GB probably thought Ringo has more juice, something that they seem far too keen on.

I was nearly certain someone would claim Callahan. He was just too good in the preseason. I believe that was a giant mistake on TT's part because now they can't showcase and trade Hundley. So, in essence, the Callahan move cost the Packers a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Dumb.
