How would you grade the Jaguars signing a veteran pass rusher like Calais Campbell?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly signing free agent pass rusher Calais Campbell to a $14 million per year deal, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

In 2016, Campbell finished with eight sacks, 53 tackles, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and an interception. He’s only missed six games in his entire nine-year career and has averaged a sack every two games over the course of his time with the Arizona Cardinals.

So, what do you think of the expected signing?

Do you like it? Campbell is a much-needed veteran presence who still has a couple of years left in the tank when it comes to sacks and pressures. He can play a couple of spots on the line and can fit into a defense still trying to find how it uses its linemen.

Or do you not like it? Campbell is 30 years old and likely won’t be able to take the amount of reps a younger guy like Yannick Ngakoue can.
