Calais Campbell said he took less money to go to Ravens

Defensive lineman Calais Campbell got a new contract when he was traded to the Ravens earlier this month, but he said he could have gotten more if he’d been traded to another team.

Campbell told reporters on Thursday that there were four or five other teams interested in trading for him. He also said that some of those teams were willing to pay him more than the Ravens, but that the quality of the team in Baltimore made up for any financial differences.

“I was more confident in going to Baltimore even if I had to take less,” Campbell said, via Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com. “There’s not too many teams better.”

There was no team better in the regular season last year than the Ravens, but they were knocked out of the playoffs by the Titans in the divisional round. They hope Campbell is part of the answer for a deeper run the next time around.

  1. LOL!

    He’s 34 years old and he’s “taking less” at 14 million per year. Can’t be made up.

  2. Ravens are building the top defense in the NFL, along with a MVP QB who is only going to get better. Gonna be a lot of fun in B’more this year.

    Not really. Your LBs blow.

    You’re renting Judon at a bloated price, Brockers has a serious foot injury and failed his physical and Calais Campbell probably has 1 year left.

    So, you’re not building anything. You’re masking on D for 2020 and will be in serious trouble with Lamar Jackson’s outrageous contract demands after 2020.

    THe good news is, it’s unlikely DeCosta will be a complete moron again and pull a 2012/2013 Flacco FA problem, where Baltimore singlehandedly spiked the QB market over that, sinking you into a nasty cap hell that lasted 5 years.

    Enjoy!

    The rookie cap is a good thing, not a bad thing. You just need to coaching to coach it up, which you don’t have.

    You have a gimmick based QB, dumb players and not much else. 11-5 at best.

  4. It remains to be seen if Lame can actually play QB. He can play running back, but if he plays both again this coming up season, he will once again fail to win in the playoffs.

    The Baltimore football team will need a defense to make up for Lame’s inability to not act like a spoiled brat when things go south for him.

  5. This will become NBA II as players force their way to winning teams. The calling card of the NFL is their level playing field but it is tilting a little.

  6. Well it looks like Baltimore has another misinformed soul on their roster…Not too many teams better than the Ravens he said…Yea OK whatever bro
