Thursday, May 10, 2012
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell agreed to a five-contract extension Thursday. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
The 6-foot-8, 300-pound lineman had 51 solo tackles and 73 overall tackles last season. He also had eight sacks, two forced fumbles, 11 passes defensed, one fumble recovery, his first interception, and blocked three field goals.
The Cardinals had placed the "non-exclusive" franchise tag on the 25-year-old Campbell on March 2.
Drafted in the second round in 2008 out of the University of Miami, he was the Cardinals' 2011 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year for his community work.
