The Green Bay Packers re-signed LB De'Vondre Campbell. The transaction was announced Thursday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
"In just one season De'Vondre made an incredible impact on this team with his on-field performance and leadership," said Gutekunst. "We are excited that he is returning to the Packers to build upon last year and help lead our defense in the years to come."
(duh-VONN-dray) Campbell, who was originally selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth round (115th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft out of the University of Minnesota, played four seasons for Atlanta (2016-19) and one season for the Arizona Cardinals (2020) before joining the Packers in August 2021. Over his first six years in the league, he played in 91 regular-season games with 86 starts and registered 607 tackles (404 solo), 31 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, 19 QB hits, five interceptions, 24 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
In his lone season with Green Bay, Campbell was named first-team All-Pro by The Associated Press after leading the team with a career-high 145 tackles (101 solo). He also registered two interceptions, two sacks, six tackles for a loss (No. 3 on team), five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Campbell ranked No. 7 in the NFL among all defenders in tackles and was the only player in the league with 120-plus tackles, multiple INTs, sacks and forced fumbles.
