Jason Campbell leans toward retirement

Ten years ago, Washington made quarterback Jason Campbell a first round draft pick. He’s closing in on calling it a career.

Per a league source, Campbell has rejected multiple opportunities to sign a contract for 2015, with the Ravens and Bengals among the franchises to which Campbell said “thanks” and then “no thanks.”

After five years in D.C., Campbell became supplanted by Donovan McNabb, resulting in a trade to the Raiders. Campbell 2010 and 2011 with the Raiders, 2012 with the Bears, 2013 with the Browns, and 2014 with the Bengals.

Campbell started 52 games in Washington before becoming the full-time starter in Oakland in 2010. A collarbone injury ended his season after six starts in 2011, opening the door for a trade for Carson Palmer. He started one game for the Bears in 2012 and eight for the Browns in 2013.
