Former Packers LB De’Vondre Campbell signing with 49ers

Former Green Bay Packers linebacker De’Vondre Campbell is signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Campbell, who spent three seasons in Green Bay, was released by the Packers with a post-June 1 designation on Wednesday.

Now in San Francisco, Campbell will team with All-Pro Fred Warner at off-ball linebacker for the reigning NFC champs. Starter Dre Greenlaw was injured during the Super Bowl and will likely miss time during the 2024 regular season.

The 49ers attempted to sign veteran linebacker Eric Kendricks earlier in the week, but he changed his mind and signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Campbell, who turns 31 in July, was a first-team All-Pro for the Packers in 2021 but dealt with injuries and a regression in performance during each of the last two seasons.

Campbell was one of three veterans released by the Packers and is now the second to sign with a new team. Running back Aaron Jones joined the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year deal. Left tackle David Bakhtiari remains unsigned while recovering from a knee surgery.
