On To The Next One: Calais Campbell

It was suspected that with the passing of Gary Wichard, many of Pro Tect Management’s clients would be venturing to new agents and agencies.  While Wichard had been suspended by the NFLPA at the time of his death, it was speculated that he was still operating for his clients behind the scenes, which is why very few clients had left his firm.  Now that he is no longer around to advise the clients he recruited, it is likely that many of those clients will seek out new representation.  Calais Campbell has done just that.

The former University of Miami and current Arizona Cardinals defensive end has switched from Pro Tect Management to Ben Dogra and Tom Condon of Creative Artists Agency (CAA).  Since joining the Cardinals in 2008, Campbell has logged 13 sacks and 136 tackles.  Calais’ brother, Severin Campbell, is a 2011 NFL Draft eligible outside linebacker from Montana.  He has also signed with CAA for representation.
