Speaking Thursday, Bengals OC Hue Jackson made it clear new backup Jason Campbell isn't a threat to Andy Dalton's starting job.
"In no way is (Campbell) supplanting Andy Dalton," Jackson said. "I like our quarterback. ... But Jason is a veteran guy who has played in a lot of offenses and has won a lot of games. I think he can help Andy with some of the knowledge that he's picked up." Dalton has been far from perfect in his three years on the job in Cincinnati, but will continue to have a long leash. Only injury could force Campbell into the lineup. Mar 20 - 3:08 PM

Bengals signed QB Jason Campbell to a one-year contract.

32-year-old Campbell had his best NFL success under Bengals OC Hue Jackson in Oakland. He will provide a solid, veteran backup for Andy Dalton. Campbell posted an 11:8 TD-to-INT ratio in eight starts for the Browns last season. He's an upgrade on the likes of Josh Johnson, Zac Robinson, and Greg McElroy.
Mar 19 - 8:40 PM

Browns released QB Jason Campbell.

Campbell was owed a $250,000 roster bonus on Thursday, but was never expected to be retained. He joins former teammate Brandon Weeden on the unemployment line. The moves are a clear sign the Browns are targeting a quarterback in the first round of May's draft, though for now Brian Hoyer sits alone atop the depth chart. Campbell and his long release were surprisingly effective at times in 2013, but were heavily managed and manipulated by OC Norv Turner. Nevertheless, he vaults to the near the top of a pitiful quarterback market.

Jason Campbell is owed a $250,000 roster bonus on Thursday.

He's going to be released before then. Once Campbell hits the market, he'll join Michael Vick, Josh McCown, Josh Freeman, and Shaun Hill as a top-five free agent quarterback, although that isn't saying a whole lot. Campbell finished the 2013 season with an 11:8 TD-to-INT ratio across eight starts. He's 32 years old.
Mar 9 - 7:06 PM

ESPN Cleveland fully expects the Browns to release Jason Campbell.

Campbell, 32, triggered an escalator in his contract because he played 45 percent of the snaps this past season and is now due $3.25 million in 2014. Beat writer Tony Grossi believes that's far too high a price to pay for a guy who was 1-7 as a starter and complained about the cold weather. Campbell and Brandon Weeden are expected to get pink slips this offseason, while Brian Hoyer (ACL surgery) should return to join an early-round draft pick at quarterback.
Jan 21 - 9:23 AM

Jason Campbell completed 23-of-41 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Cleveland's 20-7, Week 17 loss to the Steelers.

Campbell also lost a fumble, and took three sacks. As has been the case throughout much of his career, he made a habit of holding onto the ball for too long. Although Campbell proved to be a far-superior option to Brandon Weeden this season, he's still someone who needs to be managed and manipulated to succeed. Things would have been far uglier had he not had the league's leading receiver in Josh Gordon to throw the ball up to. Nevertheless, he showed more than enough to be back for 2014, where he's due an affordable $2 million. Campbell would be a backup, either to a rookie or Brian Hoyer, if he returned.

Jason Campbell will start Sunday's Week 17 game against the Steelers.

Brandon Weeden will be the backup and Alex Tanney will be the third-stringer once again. Coach Rob Chudzinski has no interest in giving someone else a chance even though Campbell has gone 41-of-79 (51.8 percent) for 451 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions in the last two games. He'd be a poor QB2 bet against a Steelers team with an outside shot at making the playoffs.

Jason Campbell completed 18-of-39 passes for 178 yards and two interceptions in Cleveland's 24-13, Week 16 loss to the Jets.

Campbell was brutal. For some odd reason, NFL.com is putting one interception under MarQueis Gray's name. Campbell definitely threw both picks. His receivers didn't help him, either, however. Greg Little flat-out dropped an eight-yard touchdown that hit him right in the hands. Josh Gordon also dropped a two-yard touchdown on back-to-back plays. The Browns were bad in the red zone and clearly missed Jordan Cameron's (concussion) presence there. Campbell's first pick was a terrible throw late over the middle to Dee Milliner. Ed Reed got Campbell late in the fourth quarter to seal the game on an overthrow. Campbell and the 4-11 Browns will end their season in Pittsburgh next Sunday.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 04:17:00 PM

Jason Campbell completed 23-of-39 passes for 273 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Bears.

Facing windy conditions and a solid Bears pass defense, Campbell performed poorly. He consistently missed an open Josh Gordon early on and threw a pair of poor interceptions -- one of which was returned for a touchdown. He did salvage his fantasy day with a 43-yard touchdown strike to Gordon in garbage time. Campbell has a far better matchup against the Jets in Week 16, meaning he'll remain a mid-range QB2. Campbell has gone over 248 yards in each of his five full games this season.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 05:39:00 PM

Jason Campbell completed 29-of-44 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns in Week 14 against the Patriots.

Making his first appearance since suffering a Week 12 concussion, Campbell looked pretty sharp as he peppered Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon with targets. It shouldn't be too difficult with those two athletic freaks in your arsenal. Campbell appeared to have led the Browns to an upset victory over the Patriots, but New England scored two touchdowns in the final 1:04 to win 27-26. Campbell's three scores went to Gordon, Cameron, and Gary Barnidge on a broken play. Campbell will be a low-end QB2 next week against Chicago.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 07:27:00 PM

Jason Campbell (concussion) is active and will start Sunday's Week 14 games against the Patriots.

Campbell returns after missing last week's game against the Jaguars. Brandon Weeden (concussion) is inactive. Caleb Hanie will be the backup. Campbell isn't a recommended fantasy option on the road in his return. Also inactive for the Browns are QB Alex Tanney, OT Martin Wallace, OG Garrett Gilkey, OT Reid Fragel, TE Keavon Milton, and WR Josh Cooper.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 11:49:00 AM

Jason Campbell (concussion, probable) has been cleared to start Sunday's Week 14 game against the Patriots.

Campbell practiced each of the past two days after being cleared for exercise earlier in the week. Campbell's reinsertion into the lineup is good news for Josh Gordon fantasy owners who were dreading a possible Caleb Hanie or Alex Tanney start. Campbell is Rotoworld's No. 26 fantasy QB this week.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 12:28:00 PM

Jason Campbell (concussion) is practicing again on Friday.

Campbell is on track to make the start against the Patriots. Thankfully, the Browns won't have to trot out Caleb Hanie or Alex Tanney at quarterback. Campbell is a bottom-barrel fantasy option as our No. 26 quarterback.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 11:23:00 AM

Jason Campbell (concussion) took the first-team reps in Thursday's practice.

Campbell will be officially "limited," but is on track to gain full clearance in the next 48 hours. Campbell was backed up by Caleb Hanie on Thursday. Brandon Weeden has yet to resume practicing. Campbell's likely return is excellent news for Josh Gordon, but Campbell won't be a recommended option against in two-QB leagues against the Patriots' defense.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 01:30:00 PM

Jason Campbell (concussion) has been cleared to practice Thursday.

Campbell still needs to gain doctor's clearance to play in a game, but players that get cleared for practice by Thursday typically end up suiting up on Sundays. Campbell certainly won't a fantasy option at New England, but his strong arm and veteran experience will be a welcome sight for owners of Josh Gordon. On Wednesday, Alex Tanney and Caleb Hanie split the first-team reps.
