    Practice Squad


    Calloway, Robert





    Saginaw Valley State

    Small school Sleeper: Robert Calloway
    Written by Bo Marchionte Thursday, 25 March 2010 13:46


    Before last season began, a scout from the Miami Dolphins called a young man playing football for the Saginaw Valley State Cardinals, in Michigan. The scout went on to tell the standout defensive lineman that he had the skills and athleticism to make it in the National Football League.

    After that phone call, the Cardinals Robert Calloway said, “I took it to heart” and that the phone call “stuck with me all season”. Calloway admitted that prior to the call he had “one problem”, his conditioning. So prior to the 2009 season, Calloway said he “basically devoted” his life to getting into shape, saying that “I did the best I could for my game”.

    The hard work paid off, as evidenced by his invites to the East Coast Bowl and Cactus Bowl at the conclusion of his senior season with the Cardinals.

    You might be wondering why I am writing about this D-II school kid and not some SEC standout. Take names like Jacob Ford from the Tennessee Titans or Aaron Smith, the 2004 Pro Bowler from the Pittsburgh Steelers—both were D-II college players. Smith was taken in the fourth round of the 1999 draft out of D-II Northern Colorado, and I would bet a pretty penny not too many from Steeler Nation knew what they where getting with this relative unknown. That’s why I try to bring someone to the forefront that can make a difference, someone you might not be acquainted with, so when the time rolls around and you hear his named called during the draft, you will be excited and not confused about your favorite team taking Robert Calloway.

    DT Calloway Joins Practice Squad

    The Cowboys have also filled their last practice squad spot. Defensive tackle Robert Calloway was signed late Thursday to bring the squad’s total to eight. Calloway was an undrafted free agent rookie from Saginaw Valley last year. He spent all of 2010 on the Detroit Lions practice squad and was released last Saturday.

    The Cowboys now have a full practice squad consisting of: WR Teddy Williams, CB Mario Butler, LB Orie Lemon, LB Isaiah Greenhouse, WR Andre Holmes, S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, FB Shaun Chapas and Calloway.

    He was a numbers casualty in Detroit. Had an excellent camp according to reports. I heard he was more like 325 lbs.

    He may be now. He probably put on additional weight during the year with the Lions.
