Money talks. The Denver Broncos last-minute attempts to sway Calais Campbell. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the defensive lineman will indeed sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After considering Denver, Calais Campbell is going to sign a 4-year, $60 million deal that includes $30M gtd with Jacksonville, per source.

The Broncos were reportedly only willing to offer $13 million per season. Though the thought of playing for his hometown team might have been enticing enough to give him pause for a moment, ultimately it was not enough to sway him.
The Broncos will now likely have to look elsewhere to upgrade their offensive line, though no deals can become official until 2:00p.m. MT.
