One of the Oldest NFL Players Back with Ravens on 2-Year Deal
Tom Brady came back from a short retirement this offseason, ensuring that there would not be a new oldest player in the NFL this season. One of the older defensive starters in the league is back with his team from last season on a new 2-year deal.
Defensive end Calais Campbell has re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens on a 2-year deal per espn.com.
Campbell, who is now entering year number 15 in the league at age 35, can still play at a very high level.
He is one of four NFL defenders since 2000 to record at least 700 tackles and 85 sacks. Among all active players, his 93.5 career sacks rank 10th and his 773 career tackles are 12th.
After beginning his career with the Arizona Cardinals, where he played 9 years and was a 2-time Pro Bowler, he has spent time in both Jacksonville and Baltimore.
Campbell has 93.5 sacks over his 14 year career including 14 forced fumbles and 773 total tackles.
Despite the individual success and having been part of some great teams, Campbell is still in search of a Super Bowl ring:
Campbell, 35, decided to return for his 15th NFL season after briefly contemplating retirement, saying he still has a desire to play after watching the Los Angeles Rams celebrate their championship. He now will get to finish his career in Baltimore after spending the past two seasons there and will try to get that elusive Super Bowl ring.
We'll see if Campbell can stay healthy this season to try and stay in the hunt for a title. Over the past two seasons, Campbell has missed 6 games and has totaled just 6.5 sacks.
