Cardinals Lock Up DE Calais Campbell

Nate Bouda May 10, 2012 Cardinals No Comments

Darren Urban of AzCardinals.com reports that the Cardinals have reached an agreement with DE Calais Campbell on a five-year deal worth $55 million contract.

Arizona wound up franchising Campbell back in March, but promised that they would eventually have a long-term deal in place with him. Campbell, 25, gets $36 million in the next three years which actually beats out Darnell Dockett‘s total of $56 million.

This is a great move for the Cardinals defense, since they now have another solid lineman locked up in their front-seven. They could still use some help at outside linebacker, but Campbell should at least provide them with a decent pass rush next season.

We had him listed as the No. 2 best available free agent in our Top 50 – 2013 Free Agents list.
