Campbell will be acquired in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick.

“Like anything in life, they say great things only last for so long,” Campbell said in a Facebook post. “My time in Jacksonville has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience filled with love, support, and pure joy from the Duval community. My family and I have fallen in love with the spirit and people of Jacksonville and we have made a lifetime of memories here in just three short years.

“When I first signed with the Jaguars, I made a commitment to the community here that I would do everything I could to make lives better for those, who felt they didn’t have a voice or didn’t have opportunity. To the people of Jacksonville, my commitment still stands. Even though I won’t be playing for your team, the work that the CRC Foundation (The Charles Richard Campbell Foundation) has started in Northeast Florida will continue.”

Campbell will also sign an extension through the 2021 season. He has agreed to a two-year, $25 million deal with the Ravens.

He will have an average salary of $12.5 million. Campbell will also have a base salary in 2020 of $15 million.

He is guaranteed to make $20 of the $25 million.

This will be Campbell’s third team in his career. Besides playing for the Jaguars, he began his career with the Arizona Cardinals.

He was the Cardinals second-round draft pick (50th overall) in the 2008 NFL Draft. Campbell played for the Miami (Florida) Hurricanes.

This past season, he appeared in 16 games, including 16 starts. He had 56 tackles, including 10 tackles for a loss and 25 quarterback hits.

Campbell also had 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and two pass deflections.

In his career, he has appeared in 186 games, including 168 starts. He has 696 tackles, including 151 tackles for a loss and 201 quarterback hits.

He’s also had three interceptions, 14 forced fumbles, 11 fumble recoveries, including three returned for touchdowns; and 48 pass deflections.
