CLEVELAND - NewsChannel5 Sports Director Andy Baskin confirmed the Browns have signed free agent quarterback Jason Campbell. Terms are not known at this time.
Campbell spent last season with the Chicago Bears. Prior to that he was with the Oakland Raiders for two seasons, and was with the Washington Redskins for four years.
Campbell is a nine-year NFL veteran, who was a first round draft pick out of Auburn.
"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 in a news release on Tuesday. "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."
He played in just six games last season as a back up to Jay Cutler. He had just two touchdowns last season.
The Browns have discussed about having an open competition for the quarterback position with Brandon Weeden. The Browns also have Colt McCoy on the roster.
The Browns may be on the verge of inking one of their top free agent targets, according to The Baltimore Sun.
The Cleveland Browns have changed Mike Lombardi's title to general manager.
The Browns will not increase season ticket prices for the fifth straight year, and the Browns will not require PSLs for future season tickets. Current PSL owners will retain PSL benefits.
