On the same day that the Eagles signed former Air Force Academy RB Chad Hall, the Lions have reportedly done the same with former Army safety Caleb Campbell.
Campbell told the Times Herald-Record in Middletown, N.Y., on Thursday that he has been offered a contract by the Lions, who drafted him in the seventh round in 2008. Campbell reportedly worked out for the Lions on Thursday, and is in the process of requesting a two-month early release from his active duty.
“I ran really, really well,” Campbell said. “I ran a 4.49, 4.50 in (the) 40-yard dash and in drills with the linebacker coach and the special teams coach.”
No official announcement has come yet from the Lions.
