The Packers have signed free agent linebacker De’Vondre Campbell. The sixth-year player spent his first four seasons in Atlanta, spending 2020 in Arizona with the Cardinals. The terms of the new deal are not known as the signing is not yet official.
ESPN’s Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reported the new via Twitter on Tuesday morning.
The Packers are bringing in former Falcons LB De'Vondre Campbell and a signing is expected assuming everything checks out, including a physical, according to a source.
Campbell gives the Packers another option at inside linebacker.

Campbell’s best season came in 2019, just before he was eligible to sign a new contract. In 2019, he had 129 total tackles, two sacks and two interceptions. 75 of his tackles that season were solo tackles. Maybe the most impressive part of Campbell’s game is his health, though.
Apart from his rookie season, Campbell has played in all 16 games in every season he has played, missing a total of only three starts. He also has experience at both outside and inside linebacker, which gives the Packers some flexibility with their new tackler.
