The Cincinnati Bengals have a bit of uncertainty at the quarterback position. Obviously Andy Dalton is the starter, having filled up the stat sheet during the 2013 regular season and led the Bengals to three straight playoff appearances. But issues in the postseason have at least some people questioning if he is the answer moving forward.
For what it’s worth, I don’t think that anybody would suggest that Jason Campbell is the answer either, but he will be in Cincy next season nevertheless. According to Adam Schefter to ESPN.
Former Browns QB Jason Campbell reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Bengals. Now reunited with Hue Jackson.

Campbell won’t overwhelm anybody, but he has carved out a nice career for himself as a steady, predictable back-up in the NFL. The tumult of the Cleveland Browns’ QB situation forced the veteran into action last season: he started eight games, throwing for 2,015 yards, 11 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. The most likely scenario is that Campbell serves as the back-up as Dalton gets another shot to prove he can get over the hump.
