Reports: Calais Campbell heading to Jacksonville

For the second year in a row, the Jaguars are making a heavy investment in their defensive line.

According to multiple reports, the Jaguars are signing former Cardinals lineman Calais Campbell.

The Cardinals were resigned to losing Campbell this year (along with safety Tony Jefferson), so that’s not a surprise on their end of the transaction.

For the Jaguars, adding Campbell to last year’s big-ticket pickup Malik Jackson (six years, $85.5 million) gives them a lot of money tied up in young veterans up front, to go along with a plethora of draft picks who could quickly turn into a good defense.

    Doesn’t matter. I refuse to get excited until the wins show up.

    That team was garbage tho, how did Jackson work out..

    Mediocrity was his decision. Blake Bortles sucks!

    Young? Jackson is 27 and Campbell turns 31…..

    I’m not sure I understand this. Calais is 30 years old and is going to be 31 in September. He is not a “young” veteran. Am I misreading this, or is it simply sloppy blogging?

    Either way, Calais is the man, super guy, vastly underrated.

    This bums me out. Calais is one of my all time favorite Cards. I hope he kills it in Jacksonville.

    Dan073eb – couldn’t agree with you more. Tired of this BS they drag out every fall. Hope the Coughlin effect is real. If not blow the whole freakin thing up and start over with no damn holdovers

    Campbell is not a young veteran.

    If Campbell comes in and gets thrown out of a game that he collects a six-figure check from, then he’ll join Malik .

    I like the pick up but still scared it could be snake oil again
