The consensus among our Cardinals sources is that the team can ill afford to lose DE Calais Campbell, who becomes a free agent at the end of the season. Word is there have been some contract discussions with Campbell's agent, Ben Dogra. Dogra also represents ex-Cardinals ILB Karlos Dansby, who opted to leave the desert for a big payday in Miami. Although they say it's possible, our sources doubt Campbell will follow in Dansby's footsteps out of town. "We'll see where it goes," one team insider said. "I think Calais likes it here. He's close enough to his family in Colorado and seems to be really on board with Ray Horton's new defense. He's a pretty good pass rusher for a 3-4 end, and they have nobody behind him. I think they'll use the franchise tag on him if they have to. He still gets driven out of run plays at times, but I think he's become every bit as good a player as Darnell Dockett."
