While Callahan missed some time in 2017 with an injury, he performed well when healthy, generating the third-most slot coverage snaps per reception allowed.

While he hasn’t offered much in terms of run defense or as a blitzer (only four career pressures), he’s allowed less than an 80.0 passer rating from the slot in each of his three pro seasons, showing a consistency that is a very valuable piece on an up-and-coming聽Chicago defense.

But when your team deals up 15 spots to get you, then trades away a quarterback who got the team to the playoffs four times in five years, much will be expected.
