The Ravens gave their defensive line a boost on Saturday, re-signing Calais Campbell to a two-year deal. according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Campbell, 35, had considered retirement but eventually decided to return to chase a first-ever Super Bowl ring. His deal is valued at $12.5 million but could be increased to $16.5 million with incentives, Schefter said.
Campbell is the second player the Ravens have pulled back for so many days from a defense that struggled last season. Middle linebacker Josh Bynes also re-signed Friday.
Although traditionally a strong pass rusher, Campbell only had 1.5 sacks last season. However, he played well on run defense and finished the game with 49 tackles.
“I have a lot of admiration for Calais as a person, as a player and as a leader,” Ravens GM Eric DeCosta said after the season. “He’s a guy who plays football to win and he does it for the team and organization in the building as well as on the field. I have great respect for him.”
Campbell has been in the league since 2008 and is a member of the NFL’s 2010 All-Decade team.
