Calais Campbell believes Ravens give him ‘best shot’ at Super Bowl title
Longtime NFL pass rusher Calais Campbell is currently gearing up for his first season as a member of the surging Baltimore Ravens. Most recently leading the Jacksonville Jaguars defense after spending the majority of his NFL playing career in the desert with the Arizona Cardinals, Campbell is now absolutely looking to end his professional tenure with a title with the Ravens.
With the Ravens serving as the top seed in the AFC come playoff time last season, Campbell believes that coming to Baltimore for 2020-21 gives him the best shot at winning an elusive Super Bowl title.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity,” Campbell recently said during in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via USA TODAY Sports. “I think, you know, this is one of those times where, I’ve been playing football for 12 years and I’ve been close a bunch — you know, I’ve played in what, three championships games, one Super Bowl — but I haven’t been able to win it yet. So, I feel like, this team, as talented as it is, this is probably going to be the best shot I have. And so, my mindset is just embrace it, treat every moment special and make each moment count.”
"You look at the roster up and down and there's talent everywhere."

Prior to spending the last three seasons with the Jaguars, Campbell notably began his career with nine seasons as a member of the Cardinals. Over the course of 186 career regular season appearances atop the highest level, he has registered 88 sacks, with 31.5 of those sacks coming across the last three seasons.
