    Aaron Kampman, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent, the team announced Sunday.

    The team did not disclose the length of the contract or financial terms.

    Kampman played his first eight NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He has 54 career sacks and recorded at least 9½ sacks per season over three of the past four seasons.

    A Pro Bowl selection in 2006 and 2007, Kampman moved to outside linebacker in 2009 as Green Bay shifted to a 3-4 defense. He had 55 tackles, including 3½ sacks, before a knee injury ended his season on Nov. 22.

    Kampman flew into Jacksonville on Friday night, met with the team's staff on Saturday afternoon and negotiated into late Saturday night, according to the Florida Times-Union.

    He should boost a pass rush that ranked last in the NFL with a franchise-low 14 sacks. The sack total is the fifth-lowest in NFL history

    The signing of the 30-year-old Kampman also sends a strong message to former first-round draft pick Derrick Harvey and second-rounder Quentin Groves, who both struggled in their two seasons.

    Kampman has 592 tackles, 13 forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in 112 career cames. He was a two-time Academic All-America at Iowa.

    Good for them, I am not too downtrodden at missing out ona pass rusher who verbally-expressed his unwillingness to play a 3-4 scheme.
