Cleveland Browns LB Target: De’Vondre Campbell
De’Vondre Campbell has put up a very nice six-year career. He began his career with the Atlanta Falcons and then became a free agent two seasons ago and signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals for $6 million. After a solid campaign with Arizona, where he recorded 99 tackles, he then signed a much lower $2 million deal with the Green Bay Packers this past year.
He had his personal-best year with the Packers as he recorded 146 tackles, two sacks, six quarterback hits, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions. Now he’s a free agent again and many teams will be calling to try and get him to come to their team. Will Cleveland be one of them?
The Browns paid Anthony Walker $3 million this past season. Malcolm Smith got paid just over $1.2 million. If both were to part with the Browns, would bringing a talented linebacker like Campbell in be a step up?
One would have to believe Campbell will get a nice pay raise with whoever picks him up. Cleveland hasn’t invested a lot of funding toward their linebacking crew. Would this be the year to do that? It has also been one of the weakest positions on the team in terms of making a big splash in games.
Owusu-Koramoah is starting to make a difference in that department. Adding a player of Campbell’s talents would be an excellent move by the Browns.
