Bengals Sign Former Browns QB Jason Campbell

Campbell could be the backup to Andy Dalton in 2014.

The Cleveland Browns might not have to deal with facing QB Brandon Weeden at all in 2014, but they could see the other quarterback they let go a couple of times. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed veteran QB Jason Campbell to a one-year deal:

The pairing between Campbell and the Bengals makes sense because of the connection to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Campbell was a member of the Oakland Raiders from 2010-2011. In 2010, Jackson was the Raiders' offensive coordinator. In 2011, he was their head coach. Campbell actually was Jackson's starting quarterback for those two seasons, before suffering a broken collarbone.

Campbell will compete for a backup role behind starter Andy Dalton. Campbell's competition at this point is Josh Johnson, Greg McElroy, and Zac Robinson.
