We discussed a few days ago how the Jaguars were reportedly interested in Campbell. With other teams also reportedly in the fold, many wondered if Campbell would be willing to come to Jacksonville over another team that might have a better chance of competing for a Super Bowl sooner. However, either money really talks, or Tom Coughlin and company gave one hell of a sales pitch.
Coming off of an eight sack season, the 30 year old pass rusher has recorded 56.5 sacks and forced eight fumbles in nine seasons. He adds tons of experience to Jacksonville’s young and growing pass rush, and will likely be moved around the entire defensive line to get to the quarterback.
