All charges dropped. I’ll be making a statement at a later date. This has been a very difficult time for me and my family.

Campbell was arrested in January after police obtained a search warrant for his mother’s home in his hometown of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania and allegedly found crack cocaine and a quantity of cash inside a Calgary Stampeders’ backpack. According to a local paper, he faced 21 counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver, plus 10 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of flight to avoid apprehension and one of tampering with evidence.
Campbell was a CFL all-star in his first season with the Stamps, starting in all 18 games. He had 71 defensive tackles including a tackle for a loss, one special-teams tackle, three interceptions and nine knockdowns.
The 29-year-old was originally drafted in the seventh round by Tennessee in 2011. He played 44 games over four seasons with the Titans and Jacksonsville Jaguars.
