Falcons To Host Free Agent DL Campbell This Week

The Atlanta Falcons are reportedly set to host free agent defensive lineman Calais Campbell this week, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. 

Campbell was recently released by the Ravens and had reportedly still kept the door open for a return. For the time being however, the 15-year veteran could decide to settle in Atlanta if talks go well this week and if the money is right for both sides. 

The former University of Miami product was drafted by the Cardinals in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft and spent nine seasons there. Campbell became an unrestricted free agent in 2017 and signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars. The 36-year-old spent three seasons in Jacksonville and earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2017 before signing with Baltimore in 2020. 

Campbell started 14/14 games for the Ravens last season with two forced fumbles, 36 tackles, and 5.5 sacks.
