Report: 49ers signing ex-Packers LB De’Vondre Campbell


The San Francisco 49ers are signing former Green Bay Packers All-Pro linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, NFL Network reported Friday.

The deal is for one year, though financial terms have not been disclosed, per the report.

The Falcons selected Campbell in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and he spent four seasons there before one season with the Arizona Cardinals (2020) and three with the Packers.

Now 30, Campbell was named an All-Pro following a 2021 season in which he made a career-high 146 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions. He added two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Last season, he was limited to 11 games (all starts) and dipped to 75 tackles and one fumble recovery.

In 115 career games (110 starts), Campbell has 779 tackles (40 for loss), 9.5 sacks, seven interceptions, 28 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
