Falcons Have Had Preliminary Extension Talks With LB De’Vondre Campbell


According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, the Falcons have had preliminary extension talks with LB De’Vondre Campbell‘s agent, Drew Rosenhaus. 

“There will be a lot of interest in Dre,” Rosenhaus said. “We have had positive dialogue with the Falcons. Dre will be a highly sought-after player.” 

Campbell was previously mentioned by Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff as a player they were looking at an extension for this offseason. However, Atlanta is tight against the cap and has some other players up for extensions as well.

The fourth-year linebacker said he would prefer to remain in Atlanta, but also understands the business side of the game. 

Campbell, 26, was drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round out of Minnesota in 2016. He just finished the final year of his four-year, $2.9 million rookie deal and made a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season. 

In 2019, Campbell appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 129 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles, one recovery, two interceptions and five pass defenses. He was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 69 linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.
