The Denver Broncos have now entered the Calais Campbell sweepstakes, offering $13 million per year as compared to the $14 million per year the Jacksonville Jaguars are offering, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Calais Campbell could take less money ($13 million per year) to go "home" to Denver; Jaguars offering more than $14m. Interesting decision.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 9, 2017
It’ll be interesting to see if Campbell takes less money to go back home to Colorado. Campbell was born in Denver.
It was reported late last night that the Jaguars and Campbell had agreed to terms by CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. But free agency isn’t official until 4pm EST so we’ll have to hold our breath for the next few hours.
We knew the Jaguars were going to have to “overpay” to get their guys here. And frankly, I’m fine with it. Gone are the days of Olivier Vernon or Robert Ayers not signing in Jacksonville because when all else is equal, they’d rather be in a larger, more potentially sponsorship-rich market.
Go get your players.
