Bengals Reportedly Agreed To Terms With New Mexico Highlands LB Jordan Campbell

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The mad dash for undrafted free agents is officially on, and the Bengals have now reportedly agreed to terms with New Mexico Highlands linebacker Jordan Campbell.

Coming into the draft, the Bengals had identified the linebacker position as one that they would like to upgrade. They snagged Texas A&M's Sean Porter in the fourth, but won't be stopping there it seems. According to the Twitter account for The Draft Insider, the Bengals have now agreed to terms with New Mexico Highlands linebacker Jordan Campbell.

It was originally reported that the Bengals were one of two teams pursuing Campbell, and it appears that the Bengals were able to get their man, beating out the Jaguars for his services. Campbell was the 2012 preseason RMAC football defensive player of the year and was an absolute monster behind the line of scrimmage. He totaled 24 tackles for a loss and 10 sacks as a senior and contributed a grand total of 104 tackles on the year. He is a little short at 5'11", but packs a big punch at 248 pounds.

Remarkably, Campbell was also the punter for New Mexico Highlands, where he tied the RMAC record for the longest punt on an 89-yard boot.
