Campbell (undisclosed) returned to Jaguars' practice Saturday, NFL.com reports. After nine seasons with the Cardinals, Campbell inked a deal with the Jaguars during the offseason. The veteran has been sidelined since the beginning of training camp due to an undisclosed medical issue. His return to practice Saturday indicates he is on track to take the field in Week 1. Campbell projects to start at defensive end.
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 defensive coordinator 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.
Campbell scored a touchdown while adding a pair of sacks and four tackles in Sunday's loss to the Saints. 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 notched a pair of sacks along with four tackles while intercepting a pass in the Cardinals Week 5 victory. As an interior lineman, this stat line was a major jackpot for those who have Campbell in IDP leagues. The sacks he recorded were his first of the year, and he's averaging just three tackles per contest. In leagues that require a defensive tackle on the roster, he does have upside, though it won't likely be reached on a regular basis.
