Arizona Cardinals: Five who could be playing last game
By Scott Allen
If he is leaving, he is leaving in style. Against the New Orleans Saints a week ago, Campbell recovered a fumble and returned it for the first touchdown of his career. He also had two sacks against the Saints that day.
He also had half a sack and fumble recovery against the Seattle Seahawks this past Saturday. He looks like a man playing for a contract, no matter where it comes from.
By far Campbell would be the most expensive man to keep. he may also be the toughest to let go. Someone out there is likely going to want to pay him something the Cardinals won’t be able to afford if they want to keep some other top players.
Many fans want to believe the Cardinals will do everything they can to keep him. Not only is he having another good season on the field but is always great for the community off of it. It may not be enough.
Campbell made $11,000,000 this season and looks to be about a $15,000,000 salary cap hit in 2017. Maybe they can make it work but if Campbell is in Arizona in 2017 it is likely because he turned down more money elsewhere.
