ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that free agent DL Calais Campbell could decide to take less money to sign with the Broncos, even though reports from last night mentioned that he was likely headed to the Jaguars.
According to Mortensen, the Broncos are offering him around $13 million per year while the Jaguars have willing to pay him over $14 million annually.
Campbell, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2008. He played out the final year of his five-year, $55 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed and will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2016, Campbell appeared in all 16 games for the Cardinals and recorded 53 tackles, eight sacks, an interception, three fumble recoveries with one being returned for a touchdown, two forced fumbles, six pass defenses and a safety. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players.
