3. Calais Campbell - $2.4 million
Campbell will retire one day as one of the best defensive ends to ever play the game. The Ravens enjoyed Campbell for three seasons between 2020 and 2022 but the truth is that Campbell reached his peak while playing for the Cardinals and the Jaguars earlier in his career.
Came was a second-round pick coming out of Miami (FL) back in 2008, originally of the Arizona Cardinals. He spent nine seasons in Zona where he first became a two-time Pro Bowler. He followed that stint with a three-year tenure in Jacksonville earning his only first-team All-Pro selection and three more Pro Bowl calls.
The Ravens traded for Calais Campbell on Mar. 2020 in exchange for a fifth-round pick that originally belonged to the Atlanta Falcons. After acquiring Campbell, he signed a smooth one-year deal with the Flock.
After that, Campbell completed an extraordinary 2020 season in which he was named to the Pro Bowl, and one year after the COVID-ravaged campaign he went on to complete a 15-game, 49-tackle, 1.5-sack season in 2021 that convinced the Ravens to ink him to a two-year, $12.5 million deal on Apr. 2022. No bueno.
The Ravens released Campbell less than a year after he signed that contract, and the defensive stalwart then signed a one-year, $7 million deal with Atlanta after flirting with the New York Jets this offseason.
