When the Cleveland Browns signed back up quarterback Jason Campbell in free agency, the immediate belief was that he would come in to town and to provide the Browns some veteran experience behind young signal-caller Brandon Weeden. There was also the possibility that Campbell would be given the opportunity to push Weeden in camp and it looks like the Browns will be giving him that chance.

Per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal:

The Browns and Weeden can only benefit from the quarterback competition in camp. Sometimes it is the competition that brings out the best in a player, and the Browns are hoping that will be the case with Weeden and Campbell.

Weeden is still the clear favorite to hang on to the starting job, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Campbell make a strong push and give the Browns something to think about.
