Even if Campbell has yet to meet his team due to the coronavirus pandemic, it seems that the defensive end is more than excited to be with his new team.
“The meetings already — just from virtual meetings — you can tell, there’s a different aura about this place.” Campbell spoke to Mike Tirico on NBC Sports' “Lunch Talk Live”.
A lot has been said about the Ravens' tradition of excellence and how highly-acclaimed the franchise is to all of its members. Campbell being thrilled about suiting up for his new squad seems about just right.
“That ‘play like a Raven’ — people take it to heart. And there’s definitely a standard that is set there that came from the people that came before me. So, I’m looking forward to putting my head in the pile and trying to ‘play like a Raven’ the best I can.”
Even if they were booted out early in last year's playoffs by the sixth-seeded Tennessee Titans, 2019 was still one heck of a season for the Ravens.
Last year's squad had thirteen players being selected for the 2019 Pro Bowl and they ended the regular season with a 14-2 record, earning them the top seed in the AFC. Adding weapons like Campbell to the team's already mighty defensive line-up will surely boost their chances this season.
With reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson leading the way surely, the Ravens are one of the favorites to make it Super Bowl LV.
