Most disappointing Cleveland Browns quarterbacks: 13. Jason Campbell (2013)
A former first-round pick out of Auburn, Jason Campbell ended up playing in the NFL for nine seasons but never lived up to his draft status. After throwing for 2,700 yards with a 20-to-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio, Campbell put his name on the map as a legit NFL-caliber player.
The Washington Football team then used the 25th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft to obtain his rights and Campbell started out playing well. He showed progression in each of his first two seasons before leading Washington to an 8-8 mark in 2008. That year, he had 3,245 yards with 13 touchdowns and six picks. He followed that up with 3,618 yards and 20 touchdowns with 15 interceptions, but the Football Team was just 4-12.
Campbell was replaced by Donovan McNabb and subsequently traded that offseason to the Oakland Raiders where he started 18 games in two seasons and was 11-7 in that stretch. He was replaced by Carson palmer which led to him heading to Chicago for one season.
Then in 2013, Campbell signed a two-year contract with the Browns. He was the backup to Brandon Weeden but took over in Week 8. His numbers were fine — but not great — throwing for 2,015 yards with an 11-to-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio but he completed just 56.8 percent of his passes.
Even worse, Campbell was 1-7 as the starter for Cleveland. Following that campaign, Campbell was let go and didn’t finish out his contract.
