Jaguars to trade Campbell to Ravens for 5th-round pick

Jaguars to trade Campbell to Ravens for 5th-round pick

On Sunday, the Jags suddenly traded Pro Bowl defensive end Calais Campbell to the Baltimore Ravens.

Campbell has consistently ranked among the best defensive lineman in football over his 12-year career. Per more traditional metrics, Campbell recorded 56 combined tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Ravens are working on a deal that will pay Campbell $27 million over the next two seasons, with $20 million guaranteed.

Australia will enforce its strictest ever travel restrictions in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus . Morrison said any enforcement would be handled by the states under their respective public health laws.


Additionally, the Ravens will take on Campbell's entire $15-million salary for 2020, which would've been the final year of his previous contract, a source told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

The trade appears to be a strong one, on paper, for the Ravens, who sent the fifth-round pick they received from the Vikings to the Jaguars for Campbell.

Minnesota, thinking it had a kicker problem, traded away a fifth-round pick for the Ravens' Kaare Vedvik before the 2019 season. But the Ravens might feel comfortable with a quiet free agency period knowing that they've brought Peters and Campbell into the fold in recent months.
