Jaguars Trading DL C.Campbell to Ravens

The Jacksonville Jaguars are trading Calais Campbell to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. The Ravens will then sign Campbell to a new contract, worth up to $27 million with $20 million guaranteed over the next two years.

Campbell, the reigning Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, turns 34 in September. In three years in Jacksonville, he started all 51 regular-season and playoff games for the Jaguars. Though he is listed as a defensive end, Campbell is a giant of a man at 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds, and versatile enough to play on the interior defensive line as well.

1 Lots of excitement over this in Balto

Lots of excitement over this in Balto. Campbell is seen as the type of player the Ravens D has been missing for several years. The acquisition is likened to that of Trevor Pryce back in '06. Helped make that defense really great that year.

Ravens were unable to generate any pressure with a 4-man rush last year; all their pressure came from blitzing. Judon + Campbell + draft pick should help with that.
