Campbell is joining the Jaguars on a four-year, $60 million contract that includes $30 million in guarantees, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
A career-long Arizona Cardinal, the 30-year-old Campbell considered signing with the Broncos, but he ultimately opted for a larger contract with a team that plays in a state without personal income tax. The Jaguars may have also sold him on their impressive collection of defensive talent, though last year's offseason makeover didn't translate to on-field success. Campbell has long been one of the league's elite 3-4 defensive ends, but he shouldn't have any trouble operating as either a tackle or an end in a 4-3 scheme.
Campbell is expected to sign with the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Campbell, a two-time Pro Bowler, would combine with Michael Bennett and Malik Jackson to form a daunting defensive line in Jacksonville. However, considering Campbell operated in a 3-4 defense throughout his tenure in Arizona, it isn't clear how he'd fit in Todd Wash's 4-3 system.
Campbell compiled 53 tackles (including 34 solo and eight sacks), six passes defended, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles, and one interception in 16 contests during the 2016 season.
With a pair of viable pass-rushers along for the ride this season -- Chandler Jones and Markus Golden -- Campbell had more room to wreak havoc this season. Although he only set a career high in terms of fumble recoveries, Campbell scooped up one of them and scored the first touchdown of his career from 53 yards out in Week 15 against the Saints. The 30-year-old's resulting 2016 grade on Pro Football Focus was 90.4, which ranked second among interior defenders behind the Rams' Aaron Donald (95.6). Due to the resurgent campaign, Campbell's upcoming price as an unrestricted free agent may be too much for the Cardinals to keep him in the fold with tough decisions to be made elsewhere on the roster.
Although Campbell has surpassed four tackles just once this season, his six sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception make him an excellent upside option as an interior lineman in IDP leagues.
Campbell has notched four sacks over his last eight games, and although he has plenty of lean weeks, he's an upside option as a lineman in IDP leagues.
