Cleveland Browns mulling QB switch to Jason Campbell



The Cleveland Browns have lost two-straight games since they went back to Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback. Weeden finished his latest game vs the Green Bay Packers having completed only 17/42 pass attempts (40.5 percent) for 149 yards with one touchdown and one interception as the Browns lost, 31-13.

It now appears as though the Browns are at least considering benching Weeden this week against the Baltimore Ravens:

The only other QB they can go to is Jason Campbell.  When the Browns signed Campbell this summer, many thought he could beat-out Weeden for the starting job.. He was 4-2 with a 84.2 QB rating as a starter in 2011 for the Oakland Raiders. He was injured in a game vs the Browns and missed final 10 games.

For his career, he’s 31-40 as a starter, a 82.5 rating.

Last season, he was a backup for the Chicago Bears and made one start in a 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He was 14/22 passing for only 107 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
