In a season when undrafted free agents faced the most difficult odds to make an NFL team, wide receiver Marquez Callaway out of Tennessee was a long shot to make the New Orleans Saints active roster.

Without preseason games and a condensed training camp due to COVID-19, undrafted rookie free agents had to make a strong impression with limited reps, especially for a deep team like the Saints.

Callaway did enough, as he made the Saints final roster cuts over the likes of 2019 training camp standouts Emmanuel Butler and Lil' Jordan Humphrey, as well as veterans Austin Carr and Bennie Fowler.

While some of the above names have been called back to the roster, all were cut back on September 5th, and none have made the impact Callaway did in last night's win over the Chargers.

With last year's UDFA star wide receiver/return man Deonte Harris (a 2019 1st-Team AP All-Pro as a kick/punt returner) out with an injury, Callaway was given plenty of opportunities.
