The Buffalo Bills are set to meet with future hall of famer Calais Campbell

The Buffalo Bills are scheduled to host six-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Calais Campbell this week on a free agent visit. Campbell made $10.605 million last season for the Ravens in a season where he put up 36 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 14 games. However, in a move to free up $7 million in salary cap space, the Ravens released Campbell just prior to the start of the new league year.

Campbell has already visited multiple teams as he looks likely to move on from a Baltimore Ravens team that is in a state of limbo as they await a resolution of Lamar Jackson’s contract situation. Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta has spoken highly of Campbell with the team releasing the following statement on Twitter.

Campbell’s free agent visit with the Jaguars reportedly went very well, so it seems likely that he will receive offers from several teams as he continues to visit teams throughout the later portion of free agency.

While the Buffalo Bills need to be judicious with their free agent budget, and are looking to add playmakers on offense, Campbell presents a unique opportunity and an interesting fit. Let’s take a look at what Campbell has done in his career, what he would bring to the Buffalo Bills specifically, and what it would take for the Bills to acquire him.
