Of course, Arizona is working on an agreement with WR Larry Fitzgerald to lower his staggering $23.6 million cap figure, which represents the easiest form of cap savings on their roster.
Cardinals GM Steve Keim recently mentioned that they are essentially over the cap by $16 million right now, which means moves will obviously need to be made in the coming weeks.
Campbell, 28, signed a five-year, $55 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed with the Cardinals back in May of 2012. He stands to make $9 million and $9.5 million over the next two years.
According to OverTheCap.com, Campbell is projected to count $14.75 million against the team’s 2015 cap. Should Arizona rework his contract, they could free up close to $6.5 million in cap space, according to OTC’s calculator.
In 2014, Campbell appeared in 14 games and recorded 58 tackles, seven sacks, one interception, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 defensive end in a 3-4 system out of 47 qualifying players.
