Campbell will be the starter at tight end in 2003, with veteran Tony McGee serving as his backup. The former Aggie signed a 3-year deal with the Cowboys that included a signing bonus of more than $1 million. He is expected to count just over $1 million against the $75 million salary cap.
"I love to block, and I want to block," Campbell told the Dallas Morning News. "I can be valuable as a receiver, but I know I am not going to catch 80 or 90 balls a year. I know what I can do and I know what I can't do."
Campbell caught 22 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown last season for the New York Giants. His role with the team was to primarily serve as a back up for Pro Bowler Jeremy Shockey.
In his 4-year NFL career, Campbell has caught 43 passes for 369 yards and 5 touchdowns, but he's known for outstanding run-blocking and toughness.
