PHOENIX – While Patrick Peterson and Beanie Wells got most of the attention from Sunday’s win over the Rams, coach Ken Whisenhunt was praising defensive end Calais Campbell on Monday.
“You see what a team leader he is and how he works. This year, he’s definitely moved into the special category because he’s done it consistently,” said Whisenhunt on the Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf show Monday.
Campbell is tied for the team lead in sacks with five and third in tackles with 55.
“To see him play at the level he’s playing at right now, obviously he’s turning into a force and playing very well in this scheme,” said Whisenhunt.
Campbell is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, so the Cardinals would be wise to reach out towards re-signing him for the future so they can keep one of their most important players.
