Former Minnesota linebacker De’Vondre Campbell has agreed to a lucrative deal with the Green Bay Packers, according to a report from Bill Huber from SI.com.
The 5-year deal for Campbell is reportedly worth $50 million. He was a member of the Packers last season, earning All Pro honors after the 2021 season for the first time in his career.
Campbell spent the first four years of his career with the Atlanta Falcons and was with the Arizona Cardinals in 2020. He was a fourth-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Last season, Campbell racked up 132 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles while starting all 16 regular season games for the Packers. He either set or tied career-bests in all categories except forced fumbles.
Over his six seasons in the league, Campbell has been responsible for 568 tackles, 24 passes defended, 9.5 sacks, 8 forced fumbles, 5 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries.
After a strong first season with the Packers, it appears Campbell has found his home in Green Bay.
