JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars are bringing in a veteran pass rusher to help fill a large void.
The team agreed to terms with Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell on a multi-year deal on Thursday, First Coast News has confirmed.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Campbell will sign a four-year, $60 million deal with the Jaguars at the start of free agency. The deal contains $30 million in guaranteed money.
Campbell, 30, has produced 56.5 sacks over the last nine seasons with the Cardinals. He has also collected three interceptions and eight forced fumbles while in Arizona.
Campbell starred at the University of Miami. The 6-foot-8, 300-pound lineman would likely play on the strong side of the defensive line. He would be the replacement for Jared Odrick in that role.
The Jaguars were tied for 19th in the league in sacks last season. Campbell was one of the top pass rushers on a Cardinals team that led the league with 48 sacks.
