May 6, 2016

The Green Bay Packers have signed 19 undrafted free agents following last week's NFL Draft, including Wesley quarterback Joe Callahan, Illinois receiver Geronimo Allison and Arizona linebacker Reggie Gilbert, as well and Minnesota punter and Green Bay native Peter Mortell.

An All-Big Ten honorable mention during his final season with the Illini, Allison posted 1,480 receiving yards and eight touchdowns during a two-year career at Illinois.

A three-year starter at Wesley, Callahan became the first Division III to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a season, en route to the Gagliardi Trophy, the division's most prestigious award.

Gilbert started in 47 career games for Arizona, finishing with 143 tackles, 14 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.


Mortell was the Gophers' punter over the last three seasons, netting a combined 8,758 yards on 203 punts, while his 44-yard career average is the highest in program history.

Mortell placed 76 punts inside the 20-yard line for the Gophers, while booting 57 punts of 50 yards or more.
