De'Vondre Campbell returned to action for the Packers in the Week 18 win over the Chicago Bears, but his future with the team is uncertain after the playoffs.
Last month, Campbell tweeted that he would no longer be "going out my way anymore" or "playing through injuries." It was unclear exactly who he was directing his frustrations at, but Campbell sat out of the following two games.
There is also a financial aspect to it. According to Over The Cap, Green Bay would create $2.78 million in cap space by moving on from Campbell in the offseason. It's a minimal saving, but crucially, it would remove two $12.5 million cap hits in 2025 and 2026.
The Packers have the youngest roster in the NFL this season, and they could continue to move on from veterans in 2024. Campbell turns 31 in July, and Green Bay could move forward with Quay Walker and Isaiah McDuffie as its top two options at inside linebacker.
Perhaps the Packers have figured things out with Campbell over his social media post. Maybe a defensive coordinator change would help him rediscover his best form in 2024. But it seems there's a good chance he will be playing elsewhere next season.
