In 2014, Campbell’s tight end unit was led by Charles Clay who posted 58 receptions for 605 yards and three touchdowns in 2014. Fellow tight end Dion Sims recorded career highs in receptions (24), receiving yards (284) and touchdowns (two). The tight ends also played a pivotal role in blocking for running back Lamar Miller en route to his first 1,000-yard rushing season. The unit helped quarterback Ryan Tannehill throw for 4,045 passing yards (most since Dan Marino’s 4,453 in 1994). Miller and Tannehill combined to become the first duo in franchise history to produce a 1,000-yard rusher and 4,000-yard passer in a season.

In 2013, Campbell guided a tight ends group that featured a breakout season by Clay, who finished with the second-most receptions (69) and receiving yards (759) and tied for the third-most receiving touchdowns (six) in a season in team history by a tight end. In 2012, Campbell’s unit was paced by Anthony Fasano, who posted a team-leading five touchdown receptions.

Campbell joined the Dolphins after 11 years of playing experience with the New York Giants (1999-2002), Dallas Cowboys (2003-05), Detroit Lions (2006-08) and New Orleans Saints (2009). A third-round selection of the Giants in the 1999 NFL draft, the former tight end appeared in a total of 114 games with 75 starts and caught 91 passes for 934 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Campbell attended Texas A&M where he was a four-year letterwinner and agricultural development major. A native of Clifton, Texas, Campbell and his wife, Holly, have a son, Cody and a daughter, Piper.
