Kampman to Jacksonville
Aaron Kampman, a free agent defensive end and outside linebacker from the Green Bay Packers, agreed to a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to multiple reports.
Kampman was regarded as one of the top pass rushers available on the unrestricted free agent market.
The Florida Times-Union reported that the deal was completed after Kampman met with Jaguars officials on Saturday.
It was the Jaguars' second free agent deal of the weekend. They also reached an agreement with wide receiver Kassim Osgood, a three-time Pro Bowl selection on special teams while with the San Diego Chargers.
Kampman reached two Pro Bowls while with the Packers. He had only 3-1/2 sacks in nine games last season, but totaled 37 sacks in the three seasons prior to that. Kampman is returning a knee injury, a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, that cut short his 2009 season.
Kampman was moved from defensive end to outside linebacker last season as the Packers switched to a 3-4 defensive alignment.
The Jaguars ranked last in the NFL with 14 sacks last season, eight fewer than the 31st-ranked Kansas City Chiefs.
