-#azcardinals introducing defense today. Calais Campbell should get a big reception. Probably last home game for a class act.

-@KHarris7 Doubtful he will be a Cardinal next year.

I've figured this for some time (I'll reference everyone back to the thread about the Mike Iupati signing from 2015 if need be..), the math is relatively simple. We have a lot of guys we need to re-sign and only "x" dollars to do it with. Terrible revelation for this defense, as Calais (30) is still easily the best down lineman we have (And by a fairly wide margin) and his presence is felt. Losing that could/would be a drastic step down for this unit. If we lose Frostee Rucker (33) as well, man....we could be in serious trouble next season defensively.

He is too good for me to be OK with this.

Bob better be ready next year.

Hopefully something clicks with Nkemdiche and the decision to keep Olsen Pierre on our roster this entire season without contributing was for a reason. Calais has been one of the best at his position for nearly a decade, can't realistically expect anyone to fill the shoes. What we do need is bounce back years from those who've struggled this season on defense that we were relying on to help offset this loss and maintain being an elite defense.

Hate to see him go. This would likely impact Larry in his decision to return or not too. Really want Calais to stay. He is still one of the best defensive lineman in the league and really sets the tone for this defense.

Hate this so much. He's been my favorite Cardinals for probably 6 years now (Not named Larry that is) Definitely would have liked to see him be a lifetime Cardinal

How much would we need to pay him to keep him?
