Cardinals DE Calais Campbell Open To Restructuring Contract

According to Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910, Cardinals DE Calais Campbell is open to restructuring his contract this offseason.

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.
