Cardinals agreed to terms with franchise player Calais Campbell on a five-year, $55 million contract.
Scheduled to earn $10.6 million under the tag, Campbell will now receive $36 million over the next three years. Still just 25 years old, Campbell bypassed Darnell Dockett's six-year, $56 million contract. Posting career-highs across the board, Campbell finished the 2011 season second only to Justin Smith among 3-4 ends in Pro Football Focus' ratings. He joins Dockett and Patrick Peterson as Arizona's defensive nucleus.
