Campbell was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in April 2002. He made the team out of training camp, and went on to appear in six games including two starts for the Vikings during his rookie season despite spending some time on the practice squad. He accumulated 13 catches for 176 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

He also carried the ball 10 times for 71 yards and returned five kickoffs for 101 yards. In 2004, Campbell appeared in all 16 games of the regular season for the first time in his career.

Miami Dolphins

After spending 2005 out of the NFL, Campbell worked out for the Miami Dolphins in January 2006. He was signed by the team in March and given a chance to earn the team's No. 3 receiver job behind starters Chris Chambers and Marty Booker.
