Campbell will be sent to Baltimore in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The 33-year-old is in the process of working out a contract extension with the Ravens.

Campbell appeared in all 16 games in each of the three seasons he was with the Jaguars, and he was one of the anchors of their defense. He had 6.5 sacks in 2019 and 31.5 in three years with the Jags.
The Jaguars recently placed the franchise tag on star defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue, though it is clear he wants out of Jacksonville. Trading Campbell is likely just the first of many significant changes for the Jaguars this offseason.
