Oakland Raiders sign U of Albany alum Campbell

Raiders to sign Campbell

Former University at Albany football player Kurt Campbell will sign a free-agent contract with Oakland today. Campbell, a linebacker, will report to the team's minicamp on Friday.

Campbell became the first Great Dane to be chosen in the NFL draft when he was taken in the seventh round by the Green Bay Packers in 2005. Campbell, who was the 245th player selected, was released by the Packers on March 19.

A native of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., Campbell earned four varsity letters as a UAlbany defender from 2001-04. He finished his career with 120 tackles.
