Looking to shore up their thin inside linebacker position, the Green Bay Packers have signed veteran free agent De'Vondre Campbell, Olivia Reiner of Packers News reports.

Campbell, a 6-4, 232-pound six-year veteran from the University of Minnesota, started all 16 games last season with the Arizona Cardinals. He was a fourth-round pick of Atlanta in the 2016 draft and spent four seasons with the Falcons.

Campbell made 99 tackles last season, his second-best season total. He has 462 tackles and seven sacks in 75 career games.

Campbell was in uniform Wednesday at the Packers' minicamp practice.

"He's a big, long guy who can run," said Packers coach Matt LaFleur, who was the Faclons' quarterbacks coach when Campbell was there. "He brings a different dynamic (to the linebacker position)."
