Calais Campbell hints at retirement after the 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 the NFL Network on Friday, the six-time Pro Bowler hinted that the 2022 season could be his last.

“I know I have this year inside of me. I don’t know if there’s anything left after that,” Campbell said. “But I will leave everything in the field and empty the tank. I am preparing as if this were my senior year. I will give everything I have.”

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

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

The Ravens acquired Campbell in an exchange with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 in exchange for a fifth round pick.

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

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