Campbell was expected to sign a deal, pending a physical, and immediately should push to start for the Packers at inside linebacker.
Campbell, 27, was drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round out of Minnesota in 2016. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.9 million rookie deal and made a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season.
Campbell signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals in 2020 that was worth a maximum of $8 million.
In 2020, Campbell appeared in all 16 games for the Cardinals and recorded 99 total tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and three pass defenses. He was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 59 linebacker out of 83 qualifying players.
