Baltimore Ravens veteran defensive end Calais Campbell told reporters Sunday night that he will not retire and will continue to play next season.
Calais Campbell, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, was not so sure about his decision for next season at the end of the season. But after the Super Bowl, he said: “After watching them celebrate winning the world championship, I really want to play and fight. So I will definitely not retire and continue to fight.”
Calais Campbell’s contract expires in March. He played for the Arizona Cardinals, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens with 93.5 sacks in his career. But in the last two years with the Baltimore Ravens, Calais Campbell has been more of a run guard than a pass rusher.
Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said after the season: “I really admire Calais Campbell’s ability as a leader, as a player. He’s still playing at a high level and has a great attitude. He’s going to benefit young people. “
