Taking advantage of the window allowing CFL players entering their option year to sign NFL contracts, Edmonton receiver Kelly Campbell and B.C. Lions linebacker Jamall Johnson have both signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Campbell, 28, led the CFL in average yards per catch at 22.6 yards The Georgia Tech product made 54 catches for 1,223 yards and seven touchdowns in his first CFL campaign.

Reports out of Tampa indicate Johnson has signed a two-year 'future' contract.

Players who are signed to 'future' contracts mean that they are signed for the 2009 season even though that season does not officially start until February 27. Only players who were not on any NFL team's active roster when the 2008 season began are eligible for such contracts.
