The 27-year-old from Rice University also added a touchdown when returning to the pound in 2018.
He has appeared in 36 games in the last three seasons. He started 26 games during this period.
Callahan is the second addition to the Broncos high school in the free time period. The Broncos signed a three-year contract with cornerback Kareem Jackson on Friday.
