  Cowboys | Dallas looking at available QBs    Mon Sep 21, 05:45 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Jets) is one of the quarterbacks that will be working out for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have also reached out to free-agent QB Jason Campbell (Bengals), but it appears he will remain retired at the moment.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys need a backup behind Brandon Weeden while Tony Romo is out. Johnson has good athleticism, but accuracy as a passer has always been a problem for him.

  NFL | Jason Campbell plans to retire    Mon Jun 15, 12:57 PM

Free-agent QB Jason Campbell (Bengals) plans to retire this offseason.

Footballguys view: Apparently, Campbell had turned down offers from the Raiders and the Bengals this offseason. A first-round pick out of Auburn in 2005, Campbell seemed to always get bounced from coaching staff to coaching staff early in his career. He finishes his time in the NFL with a record of 32-47, 16,771 passing yards, 87 touchdowns and 60 interceptions.

  Bengals | Jason Campbell may retire    Sun Apr 12, 06:55 AM

Free-agent QB Jason Campbell (Bengals) is considering retirement, according to sources close to the team.

  Bengals | Jason Campbell, Cedric Peerman could return    Sat Mar 21, 02:26 PM

Free-agent QB Jason Campbell and RB Cedric Peerman could re-sign with the Cincinnati Bengals this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Bengals could use a solid backup QB like Campbell. We're not believers in A.J. McCarrron as a backup behind Andy Dalton. Peerman should re-sign because he can do it all as a reserve running back.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton won't have competition    Thu Jan 15, 02:33 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is not expected to enter next season with competition at quarterback, as the Bengals are not expected to draft another quarterback this year. "He's our guy and we're not going to shy away from that," says offensive coordinator Hue Jackson of Dalton and quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese offers, "He was better with the intangibles this year and the ball was better coming out of his hand. You could see that right away when he came back from the last offseason." Jackson is a fan of backup QB Jason Campbell, and the team was impressed with young QB A.J. McCarron.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised here. The Bengals don't make changes quickly, so don't expect them to pull the rip cord on Dalton very soon. He's getting them to the playoffs, so they'll be content with that for a little longer and hope he learns not to implode in the postseason. He wasn't great this year in postseason play, but he wasn't the reason they lost (well, not all of it) either.

  Bengals | Could add quarterback    Fri Aug 8, 03:02 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals could add another quarterback even if tests come back negative on Jason Campbell's (arm) throwing arm, in the opinion of Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Footballguys view: They cut Zac Robinson earlier this year after he failed a physical. There's a few guys like that floating around as free agents right now.

  NFL | Veteran-heavy 2015 UFA QB class    Sun Jun 15, 12:26 PM

The NFL's scheduled unrestricted free-agent quarterback class for 2015 features 14 players who will be at least 30 years of age, including Indianapolis Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (39), St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (35), Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (35), New York Jets QB Michael Vick (34), Cincinnati Bengals QB Jason Campbell (33), New Orleans Saints QB Luke McCown (33), Seattle Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (32), Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (31), Oakland Raiders QB Trent Edwards (31), Chicago Bears QB Jordan Palmer (31), Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky (31), Cleveland Browns QB Tyler Thigpen (31) and Miami Dolphins QB Matt Moore (30). Estranged Dallas Cowboys QB Kyle Orton (32) is also scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, although he is reportedly leaning toward retirement.

Footballguys view: Any team looking for a solid veteran backup will have plenty to choose from. The only one of this list who could still be an effective starter is Carson Palmer. We'll see if Arizona tries to sign him to a new deal if he impresses in 2014.

  Bengals | Jason Campbell's deal for one year    Thu Mar 20, 09:35 AM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals QB Jason Campbell's contract is a one-year deal.

Footballguys view: Campbell may still harbor illusions he can start, or it could be that the Bengals are thinking about wholesale changes if starter Andy Dalton falters again this year.

  Bengals | Jason Campbell agrees    Wed Mar 19, 09:32 PM

Updating a previous report, the Cincinnati Bengals agreed to a deal with free-agent QB Jason Campbell (Browns) Wednesday, March 19. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Campbell is reunited with Hue Jackson here. They have a prior working relationship dating back to their days together with the Raiders. Campbell gives the Bengals a nice veteran backup behind Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Interested in Jason Campbell    Wed Mar 19, 09:00 PM

  Browns | Jason Campbell released    Wed Mar 12, 04:26 PM

The Cleveland Browns released QB Jason Campbell Wednesday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Campbell should land somewhere in need of a veteran backup, perhaps one who can push a starter. We think the New York Jets, who lost out on Josh McCown, could be a solid fit.

  Browns | Jason Campbell may be gone    Mon Mar 10, 02:08 AM

  Browns | OC to evaluate quarterbacks    Thu Feb 6, 09:15 PM

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he is evaluating QBs Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer (knee) and Brandon Weeden, the current quarterbacks on the roster.

Footballguys view: We're fairly certain that Hoyer makes the grade. The Browns could move on from both Campbell and Weeden. Most expect them to select a quarterback with a first-round pick in 2014.

  Browns | Jason Campbell may stay with team    Sun Feb 2, 10:46 PM

The Cleveland Browns may keep QB Jason Campbell on the roster because he likely would be a great mentor for a young quarterback and other young players on the team.

Footballguys view: The Browns could have both Campbell and Brian Hoyer as veteran quarterbacks on the roster. They are likely to select a quarterback with a premium pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Many think with the fourth overall pick they could take a quarterback like Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M).

  Browns | Jason Campbell expected to be cut    Tue Jan 21, 09:35 AM

The Cleveland Browns are expected to release QB Jason Campbell.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. The Browns are going to have a different looking roster at many different positions. Brian Hoyer will try to compete for the starting job in 2014. At this time, his competition for the job is unclear.

  Browns | Jason Campbell to start finale    Tue Dec 24, 10:58 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell will start the season finale in Week 17.

Footballguys view: What else are they going to do? Campbell struggled in Week 16, and the offense didn't look as sharp. He did continue to pepper Josh Gordon with passes, and that's all most fantasy owners cared about.

  Browns | Jason Campbell to start    Fri Dec 6, 01:22 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) will start in Week 14 against the New England Patriots after being cleared from his concussion suffered in Week 12. Campbell had two good days of practice, according to head coach Rob Chudzinski. Campbell will be listed as probable on the official injury report. The backup quarterback duties will fall to either QBs Caleb Hanie or Alex Tanney.

Footballguys view: Josh Gordon owners, and even Jordan Cameron owners (despite his chilly hookup with Campbell so far) should be happy about this development.

  Browns | Jason Campbell not cleared to play yet    Thu Dec 5, 10:43 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has not been cleared to play even though he was able to participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 5. He likely will need to pass another concussion test before he is cleared to play.

Footballguys view: Josh Gordon owners and those facing him are anxiously awaiting the results of Campbell's last test to be cleared to play, although it would be very hard to bench Gordon for anyone except players like AJ Green, Brandon Marshall, or Dez Bryant this week.

  Browns | Jason Campbell limited    Thu Dec 5, 06:05 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: We still await news that Campbell has received complete medical clearance to play. He won't be worthy of a starting spot in your lineup, but Josh Gordon owners will rest easier with him in there over Alex Tanney or Caleb Hanie.

  Browns | Jason Campbell looks sharp    Thu Dec 5, 01:23 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) looked sharp in practice during individual drills. His footwork looked good.

Footballguys view: Now all we need is an official OK for him to actually play. Still, this is good news and while you were starting Josh Gordon regardless, has to make you a little more confident that starting him will result in good fantasy production.

  Browns | Jason Campbell cleared    Thu Dec 5, 11:03 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has been cleared to practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: So if Campbell can be cleared to play (not just practice) it won't be Trickshot Alex Tanney or just signed Caleb Hanie. That's a relief for Browns fans as well as Josh Gordon owners, though Gordon looks like a starter regardless of his quarterback. You can't start Campbell in Week 1 of the Fantasy Playoffs though.

  Browns | Not ready to name starting QB    Wed Dec 4, 12:03 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said he is not ready to name a starting quarterback for the team's Week 14 game. QBs Jason Campbell (concussion) and QB Brandon Weeden (concussion) have been cleared for activity but will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4. QBs Caleb Hanie and Alex Tanney will split reps during practice. No quarterback has been ruled out to start the game.

Footballguys view: The team has to wait and see if Campbell or Weeden can practice. It's not a good sign if Hanie or Tanney have to start. Tanney is a great trick shot quarterback, but he lacks experience in the NFL. Hanie has plenty of experience, but he's not a quality option as a starter.

  Browns | Unlikely to use Alex Tanney     Tue Dec 3, 02:10 PM

The Cleveland Browns are unlikely to start QB Alex Tanney against the New England Patriots in Week 14 if QBs Brandon Weeden (concussion) and Jason Campbell (concussion) can't play. QB Caleb Hanie was just signed to provide more depth at the position.

Footballguys view: Tanney is a great trick shot quarterback (search YouTube) but he has zero experience in the NFL. Hanie at least has started during his pro career.

  Browns | Jason Campbell cleared for activity    Mon Dec 2, 12:07 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has been cleared for activity, but has not been cleared to return to practice Monday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: With the way Brandon Weeden (concussion) has been playing we're not sure the team will go back to Campbell. They'll probably have the two compete in practice when Campbell (and Weeden) is ready. Weeden has a short hook, and he could be replaced at any time if he struggles.

  Browns | Alex Tanney may start    Mon Dec 2, 12:04 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Alex Tanney may be forced to start in Week 14 against the New England Patriots if QB Brandon Weeden's (concussion) concussion is serious to keep him out for the week. QB Jason Campbell (concussion) missed the Week 13 game with a concussion of his own.

Footballguys view: That's not good news for the Browns. Tanney is a great trick shot quarterback (search his name on YouTube now) but he's incredibly inexperienced. If he does start then hopefully he knows that peppering Josh Gordon with passes is the easiest way to produce.

The Cleveland Browns confirmed Wednesday, Nov. 27, that QB Brandon Weeden will get the start against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, according to head coach Rob Chudzinski. QB Jason Campbell (concussion) is still going through the league's concussion protocol and is listed as doubtful. Weeden completed 13 of his 30 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12 when he replaced Campbell.

Footballguys view: The Browns are not considering placing Campbell on Injured Reserve. We'll see Weeden as the starter with newly acquired Alex Tanney as his backup in Week 13.

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Nov. 27, and is unlikely to play in Week 13. QB Brandon Weeden is likely to start.

Footballguys view: Weeden against the Steelers is only worth starting as a low end QB2 play in Week 13. At least we know that Weeden will constantly barrage Josh Gordon with targets.

  Browns | Brandon Weeden may start     Mon Nov 25, 12:15 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said QB Brandon Weeden may get the start in the team's Week 13 game, even though QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has not been ruled out yet.

Footballguys view: Campbell will have to pass the NFL's protocol for dealing with concussions before he gets back on the field. Weeden has plenty of starting experience but is not an exciting fantasy option. However, he should do enough to keep Josh Gordon an every week starter.

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) will go through the leagues concussion protocol before he is cleared to play.
