New 49ers LB Campbell rips Packers coaches in social media posts

NBC Universal, Inc.

De'Vondre Campbell reportedly is signing with the 49ers, but the veteran linebacker had some things to say about the coaching staff on his former team, the Green Bay Packers.

In a string of posts on X, the site formerly known as Twitter, Campbell cited issues with how some of Green Bay's coaches decided to use him, explaining his disagreements with the way he was utilized within the scheme.

Campbell is an eight-year NFL veteran who saw his best season come with the Packers in 2021, when he earned a First-Team All-Pro selection starring in the middle of Green Bay's defense.

The 30-year-old boasts a tremendous amount of NFL experience, appearing in 115 regular-season games during his career in the league.

With incumbent starter Dre Greenlaw recovering from an Achilles injury, Campbell has a legitimate opportunity to land a feature role next to Fred Warner in the second level of the 49ers' defense.
