Kampman's visit to Jacksonville is confirmed

NFL_kampman.jpgOn Friday, free-agent defensive end Aaron Kampman was heading to Philly for a free agent visit.  He then changed his mind.

Kampman had no similar Favresque experience after deciding to take a trip to Jacksonville.  The player who went boom in a 4-3 defense and bust in the 3-4 has indeed made the trek, and he’s currently visiting with the Jaguars.

Michael C. Wright of the Florida Times-Union confirms the news that came earlier today regarding the visit.

Per Wright, Kampman is one of the Jags’ top priorities in free agency.  He spent Saturday morning meeting with the staff.

Wright also writes that Kampman’s people remain in contact with the Eagles.

For the Jaguars, defensive end Jared DeVries reportedly is a Plan B option; Wright reports that the Jaguars have been in touch with the former Lion.

    Good player!!

    If he changed his mind about coming to Philly then I hope he signs with the Jags and all 15 or so fans that they have. You don’t want to be here then we don’t want you. No hard feelings if you don’t want to play for some of the most loyal and diehard fans in all of sports. Its America and you have choices. Good luck

    Stay in Green Bay, Aaron!

  7. thekodinator says: Mar 6, 2010 3:38 PM

    AK74, come back to Green Bay. PLEASE come back to the Pack.
    And if you must sign elsewhere, stay the EFF out of the NFC North!

    Yeah Philly fans seems to be real loyal about the QB they have now….

    He did not go bust in 3 4. That is not correct

    Kampman would be an ideal signing for the Jags. He is still a good player and is the kind of high character veteran that could help with the development of a guy like Derrick Harvey.

  11. ShimSham says: Mar 6, 2010 3:57 PM

    Calling him a bust in the 3-4 is a bit of an overreaction. He wasn’t as effective as he had been, but he still wasn’t awful.

  12. The Devil says: Mar 6, 2010 4:02 PM

    packer fans can never be honest.
    He sucked in the 3-4, get over it and MOVE THE HELL ON

  13. richkotitte says: Mar 6, 2010 4:12 PM

    He did recently have ACL surgery, so a huge/risk reward signing, but IF healthy would be a perfect fit for the Jags (4-3) ..IF he can accustomed to the heat of Jackonville/LA…too many IF’s,,,,

  14. shaggytoodle says: Mar 6, 2010 4:14 PM

    The 3-4 started gelling about 8 weeks into the season or so. Capers started using Kampman more succesfully and then the ACL tear didn’t allow us to see how well he could play the rest of the year. I would love for Kampman to stay, but if it doesn’t work out I wish him the best, he’s a class act.

    I love assholes who like to apply the bust label when someone doesn’t figure something out from minute one. He played in the 3-4 for half a season before he got injured. After the injury, he stated the scheme was finally starting to make sense to him, that he was finally starting to figure it out. To label him a bust is way too premature.

  16. lovemonkey84 says: Mar 6, 2010 4:15 PM

    Calling the guy a bust is pretty lazy writing Florio. He was at rush DR asked to play OLB in a 3-4. He was a company man, kept quiet and is know finding a better fit for his skill set.

  17. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Mar 6, 2010 4:31 PM

    He had what, 28 QB hits in the 3-4 in 8 games? That’s not a bust. He was really starting to come around the last couple of games. Capers was just figuring out to use him and comfortable enough mixing things up so Kampmann could start putting his hand on the ground.
    I agree with the others. Too soon to call him a bust in that role.

  18. Mick730 says: Mar 6, 2010 4:59 PM

    He was indeed awful as a 3-4 linebacker. He obviously was not the athlete everybody proclaimed. Couldn’t cover and didn’t offer much in the way of a pass rush either. Very stiff. A fish out of water as a linebacker.

    Bartender… I’ll have what that guy’s drinking.

    Any team who gets AK gets their money’s worth. Hate to see him leave the Pack. Capers needs to tweak that defense and keep AK’s hands on the ground and let him go at it. Ol’ TT better get real lucky in this years draft.

    Any team getting AK gets their money’s worth. Wish Ccapers would tweak the defense and jusat keep AK’s hands on the ground & let him go to town. TT better get real lucky in this years draft.

    BUST????? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT…….REPORTER TACTIC IN DEED….TO GET A RISE OUT OF PEOPLE….His last year was not as great in years passed…but by NO means was he a BUST!

  23. Ambrose says: Mar 6, 2010 5:44 PM

    I don’t care where he goes. Unfortunately, he no longer fits on the Packers. I just want to get like-for-like for him.

    loyalty would apply to an entire organization, wouldn’t it? Being loyal to one player out of 53 isn’t loyalty, it’s being biased.

    Kampman is now a Jaguar:
