Just to temper this great news a bit, NFL contracts are not guaranteed. Let us hope that A) Kurt kicks some ass, making the team out of camp and B) Kurt stays healthy. Those medical buyouts are nasty.


MY PREDICTION: KURT IS RENEGOTIATING THE CONTRACT IN YEAR 3, when he becomes an integral member of the squad.

Jul 20 Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports rookie LB Kurt Campbell's four-year contract had a total value of $1,426,500. It included a signing bonus of $41,500 and as noted earlier, minimum base salaries for all four years.


Well the first year is probably partially guaranteed and the bonus is in his pocket except for the agents cut.

RARELY...and I DO MEAN RARELY (hence the holdout issue this year) do you see guaranteed contracts in the NFL....even partially. If he gets injured they have an injury settlement. If he gets cut, he keeps his bonus.


It does look, however, like many people like Kurt's potential in Bates system. He is currently No. 6 on the depth chart at LB and they plan on carrying 6....so we will see.


Good luck Kurt!!!

Packers had a practice yesterday for rookies and 15,000 people showed up. That's amazing. Probably not that big of a deal for the guys from big schools but probably the most people Campbell has played in front of-for a practice.

This is a quote from Campbell about that fan support


“This is amazing,” said rookie linebacker Kurt Campbell. “It tells you about the town and how much they love the team and everything. This is wonderful to be in this atmosphere.”



For perspective 15k is more fans than will see UA at University Field for an entire season.

Campbell breaking up a pass in practice. Currently second on depth chart.






I have a whole bunch of pics (attempted tackle, riding a bike) of Kurt that I am forwarding to DP for inclusion on the top for awhile.
