The Packers have agreed to terms with linebacker De'Vondre Campbell on a five-year, $50 million deal, Bill Huber of SI.com reports.

Campbell, 28, will get $16.25 million in Year 1, $21.5 million in first two years and $32.25 million by Year 3, per Huber.

The Packers got Campbell for a bargain basement deal last summer, signing him to a one-year, $2 million contract that included a $1.01 million signing bonus. He gave them an All-Pro season.

Campbell finished seventh in the NFL with 145 tackles. He added six tackles for losses, six quarterback hits, five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.

He led the NFL with 101 solo tackles before sitting out the season finale.

Campbell spent four seasons in Atlanta and one in Arizona before finding a home in Green Bay.

  1. So much for the Packers being in “cap hell!” This is a seriously solid signing! Nice!

  2. So, maybe the Packers aren’t in “cap hell” after all. This is a really quality signing. I have no idea how they got him for $2 million last year, but I’m guessing this is still a value price.

  3. That’s a ton of money for ILB, especially since this contract will still be paying him when he’s 34 years old.

  4. This is the best deal in FA so far. Big time discount.

    Packers are kicking the can down the road.

    Bears and Lions should be ready to compete in 2 years when the Packers are releasing half their roster.

    Vikings will still be around .500 regardless.

  5. Rodgers deal will shave another $20 mil off the cap. After the moves they made earlier today the cap was $17 mil over. That’s with D Adams tag of $20 mil. When they do his deal I’m sure they save another $5 mil.
    Tonyan and Douglas are next. Not sure about MVS though.

  6. A lot for a one demintional player. The type of move when you are only interested in losing playoff games. Nothing special

  7. Uh… I’ve been told repeatedly the Packers roster would be Rodgers, Adams, and 51 undrafted free agents…….

  8. Good signing, to a good team. The biggest difference among the NFCN teams and their exoectations for success is still Aaron Rodgers. Nothing has changed.

  9. “This is a really quality signing. I have no idea how they got him for $2 million last year, but I’m guessing this is still a value price.” They got him because they are a quality,perennial playoff team with great coaching and very smart management with a willingness to spend money on their players.

  10. Great signing. He in no small measure was responsible for the Packer defense resurgence last year.

  11. Wow. This makes me happy. The man can play football and really made the Packers D gel this year. I’ll sleep good tonight

  12. Good for the former Gopher.
    Last year watching their defense I couldnt stop wondering ‘who is that guy’

    He’s been a tackling machine the last five seasons. Where have you been?
