Calais Campbell hints at retirement after 2022 season

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell has played 14 years in the NFL since being selected in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Arizona Cardinals.

Appearing on NFL Network on Friday, the six-time Pro Bowler hinted that the 2022 season could be his last.

“I know I have this year in me. I don’t know if there’s anything left after that,” Campbell said. “But I’m going to leave everything on the pitch and empty the tank. I’m preparing like it’s my last year. I’m going to give it my all.”

In April, Campbell agreed to a two-year, $12.5 million contract with the Ravens.

The 35-year-old played 15 games for the Ravens last season, posting 49 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

The Ravens acquired Campbell in a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick.

In two seasons in Baltimore, Campbell recorded 77 tackles and 5.5 sacks, making the Pro Bowl in 2020.

In 213 career NFL games for the Cardinals, Jaguars and Ravens, Campbell has 773 tackles, 93.5 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and three interceptions.
