Jason Campbell, Oakland Raiders
6-5, 223 Lbs
2012 Age: 31 years old
Jason Campbell has gotten screwed at every step of his NFL career.
What we like:
Great physical tools, good arm talent
Remains viable despite a career of adversity
Great size for NFL quarterback
Has shown scheme versatility
What we don’t like:
Coming off of a broken collarbone
Limited West Coast Offense experience
Has never put together a full good season
Not as mobile as he once was
Were it not for a broken collarbone and a trade for Carson Palmer, Campbell would likely be off the market. He’s really seemed to find his place in Oakland, which was good for him considering that he’s had a ton of different coaching staffs and offensive coordinators since his freshman year of college. Campbell probably won’t get a starting job next year, and that will be no different in Seattle, and he’s probably not an upgrade over Tarvaris Jackson on paper, but is a viable backup candidate. If the Seahawks decide to draft a quarterback early, but still want to compete for a playoff spot, Campbell might make a lot of sense as a back up.
