NFL Market Share Production

Metric Recommendation: Campbell is an example of why MSA production is a much more important metric than athleticism. Campbell was a below average athlete for his size in every metric coming out of Miami, but he had a MSA rating of 99.34. And he became one of the most impactful 3-4 defensive ends for nearly a decade. He is the safest defensive tackle in this free agency cycle. But that doesn’t mean you should make him the highest paid 3-4 defensive end either.

Based on his production in college and his unbelievable consistency of production in the NFL. I’d recommend an average salary of 17,768,460 per season adjusting for the salary cap increase. This will ensure he will be one of, but not “the” highest paid 3-4 defensive ends in the future. Some hedges for his age and athleticism should be in place. However, when you prove you can be an elite producer in the NFL for eight straight seasons.

That type of impact shouldn’t be short-changed.
