De’Vondre Campbell: Re-signs

For most of the offseason, I’ve expected to De’Vondre Campbell to cash in elsewhere on his All-Pro season with the Packers. But as we approach free agency, my prediction is that he signs a new deal here.

What has changed?

Well, it sure sounds like re-signing Campbell is one of the Packers’ top priorities. According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Green Bay is “willing to pay to keep him”.

Silverstein did note that Campbell will test the market, so it’s possible another team offers him a deal well out of the Packers’ range. If that happens, there will be little they can do. However, if it’s a priority and the Packers are willing to pay, there’s every chance they will do what is necessary to ensure they have the cap room.

Green Bay could also structure the deal in a way to ensure the impact on the cap in 2022 is minimal, as they did when Aaron Jones signed a new four-year contract last spring.

With Aaron Rodgers committed to returning and the Packers franchise-tagging Davante Adams, the next priority should be to keep Campbell. I think they find a way to get it done and bring back the first-team All-Pro.
