Arizona Cardinals Sign Calais Campbell

The Arizona Cardinals signed Calais Campbell, their second round pick, to a four year deal today and as usual, terms of the deal were not disclosed. I should know the base salary amounts in a day or two and the signing bonus and guaranteed amounts will come out in time.

In order to sign Campbell the team had to release someone and Bo Schobel was the odd man out. Schobel, who was signed mid-way through the 2007 season, was a long shot to make the roster. He appeared in two games and had one tackle. The deal leaves Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as the only unsigned rookie, but negotations are ongoing and hopefully a deal should be announced before camp starts. Only five first round picks have agreed to contracts so far but the Cardinals report to camp earlier than most teams. There is some speculation the Cardinals are keeping a close eye on the negotiations between the Bears and Chris Williams. It is believed that the two sides are close to agreeing on a contract and the Cardinals can then use that contract to gauge DRC's value, considering that Williams was selected at 14 (DRC was 16th).

On an even more positive note, Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Dockett and Boldin, said that both players will be in camp on time. The Cardinals should open camp with every player there and accounted for. The team is also hopeful that Gabe Watson will be the only player who is limited because of injury, although Leonard Pope is another possibility.
