Campbell Could Thrive After Other Linebacker Rentals Failed

GREEN BAY, Wis. – De’Vondre Campbell is the Green Bay Packers’ latest one-year rental at linebacker.

In 2018, it was Antonio Morrison. In 2019, it was B.J. Goodson. In 2020, it was Christian Kirksey.

After three swings and misses, the linebacker-hungry Packers on Wednesday signed Campbell, a 70-game starter in his five NFL seasons, to a one-year deal. Campbell participated in individual drills during the final two days of the team’s mandatory minicamp.

“My job is to do whatever I’m asked to do,” Campbell said after minicamp wrapped up on Thursday. “I feel like I have very little limitations in my game, so whatever it is that the coaching staff wants me to do, I’m just going to go out and do it to the best of my ability.
