The Cardinals have added their second free agent linebacker of the week.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus told PFT that his client De'Vondre Campbell has agreed to sign with the Cardinals. It’s a one-year deal worth up to $8.5 million for the former Falcon.

Campbell was a fourth-round pick by Atlanta in 2016 and he has appeared in every one of the team’s games over the last three seasons. He started 44 of those games and finished his time with the team by recording 129 tackles, two interceptions, two sacks and three forced fumbles.

Before landing a deal with Campbell this week, the Cardinals came to agreement with Devon Kennard. Kennard was released by the Lions before the start of the league year on Wednesday.

  1. I mean, the Pats were looking at this guy, but he’s 4-5 mil per player MAX. Keim is horrible.

    He has no idea what he’s doing. A speedier, smaller LB like this, more of strategic player like a Shea McClellin, a Marquis Flowers, someone who you don’t really use on all 3 downs.

    Also, why would you overpay for 1 year? Arizona is nowhere near contending for a SB. Nowhere near it.


  2. Newsflash…

    The Arizona Cardinals are probably closer to competing for a Super Bowl than the New England Patriots right now.

    And the contract was signed for UP to 8.5 million… not 8.5 million dollars.. if he reaches those escaltors…. it will be a bargain

  3. The Cardinals have treated every tight end the last two seasons as if they had the Corona virus… at least 4 to 6 feet away from them…

    So this guy is worth double his salary

  4. cakesw is absolutely right. This team needed guys who can stop TEs after a league-worst 16 TE touchdowns, and stop the run as well. I like the moves they’ve made on defense so far, hopefully they can avoid the injury bug more than prior Cardinal teams.

  5. Arizona’s defense should be pretty solid next season with the new signings they have made. With an offense that should be a top 5 offense with the weapons the Cardinals have now (after ranking #2/Run & #13/pass via DVOA in Murray’s rookie season) this team should be able to make a lot of noise and contend for a playoff spot in Murray’s 2nd season especially with the new playoff format that will include 2 additional teams per conference into the playoffs.
