After he was waived by the Jets (9/4/10), he signed to the practice squad (9/6/10) and spent all 16 regular season, and the first two postseason games there before being signed to the active roster (1/22/11) and earning his NFL debut at Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game (1/25/11).
Campbell (WR/6-2/205/Temple/Edison, NJ), released from the practice squad (10/5/11), rejoins the team after initially signing as an undrafted free agent (07/27/11) and spending preseason with the club. He played in 43 career games (19 starts) at Temple, totaling 1,253 yards and 83 receptions. As a senior, he led the team with 724 receiving yards on 45 receptions.
Wilson (S/6-2/203/Northern Illinois/Harvey, IL) originally signed with the Jets as a free agent (8/24/11) after he was not selected in the 2011 supplemental draft. He appeared in the team’s final two preseason games before being waived (9/3/11). In three seasons at Northern Illinois, he started 17-of-32 games and amassed 171 total tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss, four fumble recoveries and one interception.
