Arizona Cardinals: Five who could be playing last game
By Scott Allen
If it comes down to paying Campbell or Chandler Jones, Jones may win out in that battle. Jones, who the Cardinals traded for back in March, has had a good first season for the Cardinals.
Jones has 9.5 sacks in 2016. In addition, Jones has three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Jones had 12.5 sacks in 2015.
Jones had 1.5 sacks on Saturday against the Seahawks but it was his first registered sack since November 13th against the Minnesota Vikings. At times he has seemed to have disappeared.
Jones, despite being paid less than Campbell in 2016, may command more on the open market. Jones has three more sacks than Campbell and Campbell has seemed to really come on just lately.
There is always a chance that both Jones and Campbell come back in 2017. The reality is however the Cardinals likely can’t pay both. One can always hold out hope until there is reason not to but the fact is the Cardinals will most likely part with one of them.
