New Titans OL Coach Bill Callahan Boosted Alan Faneca, Unknowns As He Built Rep

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Hjalte Froholdt played in eight games for the Patriots in 2019 after they spent a fourth-round pick on him, but he didn't start any and was waived before Week 12.

The Texans claimed him, but things didn't pan out there either. Froholdt's agent had one destination in mind for him at that point: Cleveland.

Joe Panos of Athletes First helped convince offensive line coach Bill Callahan and the Browns to sign Froholdt during the 2021 season.

Cleveland Browns offensive line coach Bill Callahan works with the lineman during OTA workouts on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 in Berea.

"If I have a guy that I need developed, a dude who's on the street who needs a job or an undrafted guy, I will 100 percent sell him to Callahan," Panos said. "Because I know he can develop him.

"Froholdt is a perfect example. I sell him to Cleveland. He's on the practice squad. He made the 53. Started playing. Started starting. And now he's the starting center for the Cardinals. Ask him. It's Bill Callahan who got him there. One hundred percent."

After news broke that Brian Callahan was able to get the Browns to release his dad, Bill, to join the Titans as their offensive line coach, I spoke to Panos and Pro Football Hall of Famer Alan Faneca about him.
