The Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t make many roster tweaks during the 2022 season, but one player they added was cornerback Tevaughn Campbell. On Wednesday, the Jaguars made sure that Campbell didn’t leave.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jaguars reached a one-year deal with Campbell to return.
While no value for the contract has been reported, it’s presumably a cheap deal as the Jaguars opted against using a tender to keep the restricted free agent. Jacksonville could’ve tendered Campbell for $2,627,000 and received the right to match any deal the cornerback got on the open market.
Campbell, 29, appeared in five games for the Jaguars after he was signed from the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad in October. Campbell was on the field for just 31 defensive snaps and 10 snaps on special teams after joining the Jaguars.
While Campbell will likely have a chance to fight for a roster spot in August, the decision to bring him back probably won’t have any impact on the team’s other offseason plans.
