Packers Release De’Vondre Campbell

Ahead of this week’s NFL free agency period, the Green Bay Packers made the move to cut ties with former All-Pro inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell on Sunday. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the move saves Green Bay over $10.5 million in cap space. They now have even more cap space that will allow them to dive into adding help at positions of need, such as safety and now inside linebacker.

This move ends Campbell’s three-year run with the team. After signing a one-year deal in 2021, Campbell would go on to have an outstanding season. He recorded 146 tackles, five pass deflections, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles en route to being named First-Team All-Pro. He was the first Packers inside linebacker to be named an All-Pro since Nick Barnett in 2007.

Since the 2021 season, after signing a five-year deal, Campbell battled injury issues was never really his 2021 self. He missed 10 games total over the last two seasons and didn’t record over 100 tackles in either 2022 or 2023. The former Minnesota Golden Gopher, who turns 31 in July, will now look for his fourth career team.

Again, Green Bay will now look to add more help to their defense. According to reports, they are said to be big players in the safety market. This comes after the likes of Darnell Savage, Rudy Ford, and Jonathan Owens entered free agency this week. Now, the Packers will also need to fill a void at inside linebacker with only Quay Walker and Isaiah McDuffie as the only other competent playmakers at the position.
