Jason Campbell’s star rises, sort of

Chicago Bears v Minnesota Vikings

With Matt Moore staying in Miami, the crop of free-agent quarterbacks quickly got crappy.


Advantage Jason Campbell. The former Redskins and Raiders starter who backed up Jay Cutler in 2012 with the Bears is expected to generate increased interest, thanks to a bad market.

Hurting Campbell is the fact that, when he played last year for Cutler, Campbell didn’t play very well. But his body of work will get him a chance to continue his career as a backup, with a chance to play if the starter is either hurt or horrible.

With the Vikings hoping to find a new backup quarterback quickly, Campbell could be a possibility.

Insert “but they already have a backup named Chrisian Ponder” crack here.
