The Browns have said they wanted competition at the quarterback position. On Tuesday night they acquired Weeden’s competition- Browns signed former Bears QB Jason Campbell. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 27, 2013 Campbell is 31 years old and a veteran of three NFL teams. He played in Chicago last season. From the Browns- “Jason is an established leader who has started a number of games in this league and has had success,” said Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski. “He brings us a veteran presence and a good set of physical tools. He played in a similar system when he was in Oakland and that will help in his transition.” “We are excited to have Jason as a member the Cleveland Browns,” said Browns CEO Joe Banner. “He is a veteran player who has been productive throughout his career and will be a good addition to our team.” From Rotoworld.com- “Good night, Colt McCoy? Campbell joins McCoy and Brandon Weeden at quarterback, and will likely force McCoy off the roster. The Browns have been admittedly open to dealing either of their top two quarterbacks, but it’s extremely doubtful new coach Rob Chudzinski would feel comfortable with just McCoy and Campbell. Campbell was a disaster in his lone start of 2012, but was contending with a ferocious 49ers’ pass rush behind a pathetic offensive line. Going on 32, Campbell’s elongated motion makes him a tough sell as a starter, but he’s one of the league’s better backups. It’s within the realm of possibility he’ll get on the field this season.” With Cambell’s experience, I would stipulate that Rotoworld is correct. I can’t imagine McCoy sticking with the Browns this season. [Related: The Browns and year after year QB envy]
