It'd be cool if Jaguars' Calais Campbell yelled 'checkmate!' every time he got a sack

Calais Campbell was a big free-agent pickup this past offseason for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who got him on a four-year deal valued at $60 million in the spring.

He made an immediate splash, notching four sacks in a victory against the Houston Texans in Jacksonville’s season opener.  Through two games, Campbell is tied with the Dallas Cowboys’ Demarcus Lawrence for the league high in sacks.

He’ll take his sack-happy ways to London on Sunday, when the Jaguars face the Baltimore Ravens, a game Yahoo Sports will stream live.

In a Yahoo Sports video feature, reporter Kirk Morrison spent time with Campbell and one of the Jaguar’s brothers to talk about a passion that helped balance the defensive star: chess.
