Jason Campbell was informed by the media, instead of the front office, that his time as starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins was over due to the recent trade for Donovan McNabb.
Many Redskins fans feel that Campbell was never given a fair chance with an offense line that would protect him or an offensive coordinator that could hold the job for more than a season.
Here are my picks for where Jason Campbell ends up and why.
Buffalo has run into a problem the past few seasons trying to determine if Trent Edwards is worth the investment.
They have since seen the light and are looking to move forward.
With a pair of decent running backs in Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson, Campbell may fit well into this system seeing that he could actually have a backfield that could move the ball if needed.
In an ideal world, the Rams use the first overall pick on someone useful like an offensive tackle so that whatever quarterback they wind up with gets some protection.
A tackle also could mean that Steven Jackson might actually get a hole to run through instead of having to make one himself.
Campbell fits well here because it is a run-first team now with Jackson in the backfield.
Campbell could make this team better because he does pose a small threat to throw the deep ball, which will keep defenses more honest instead of stacking the box and waiting to see which side Jackson happens to be running toward.
Some other time maybe, but thank your lucky stars for Mike Holmgren, who has taken a few quarterbacks that nobody wanted and turned them into solid, even Hall of Fame caliber leaders.
Is it possible or probable that Jason Campbell will be getting a plaque in Canton, just down the road from Brownsville?
Doubtful, but he could have a decent career in Cleveland.
Holmgren is leading the way. The Browns have a few speedy wide receivers that can break open (Josh Cribbs) and they are developing a top notch offensive line, starting with Joe Thomas, who could provide protection for Campbell's blind side for once.
Want to know the real reason why Jason Campbell would be a good fit for the Raiders? I've got two words: JaMarcus Russell.
Want to know why Jason Campbell probably will not be wearing silver and black this season even though the offense fits him perfect? I've got two words: Al Davis.
Those two names will keep Jason Campbell from joining one of the more storied franchises in the history of football, however the offensive scheme is perfect for Campbell.
Jacksonville is a team that has had some problems over the past year.
David Garrad was money three years ago, but now not so much.
A teammate was shot and they saw the departure of long time backfield general Fred Taylor for the rival Patriots.
So let me see that leaves of course, only one good player on the team.
Maurice Jones-Drew would like someone to distribute the ball elsewhere instead of having to hug it and hope for three yards.
Many fantasy football players would scream if Jacksonville picked up Campbell and the Jags drafted a top-notch wide out like Dez Bryant or Golden Tate, which would keep the secondary honest enough to open up those five to eight yard dump-offs that annoy the heck out of the defensive coordinator and keep the time of possession on your side of the fence.
It also frees up Jones-Drew to breathe once in a while.
The Carolina Panthers.
The Carolina Panthers are in dire need of a starting quarterback that has experience in leading a team.
Even Michael Vick said he saw himself wearing a Panthers jersey just because they look awesome (Sorry, Mike).
Whether you like Campbell or not, he has been the starting quarterback for the Redskins for a few years now and has had the tough assignment of dealing with multiple offensive coordinators changing all the time.
He is a smart enough quarterback to learn his role within the John Fox style of football.
With Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams in the backfield he will always have a reliable back to pitch it to in dire straits.
Carolina is hurting for another sure wide out other than Steve Smith, who resembles Santana Moss a lot in size so Campbell could get used to him.
Dwayne Jarrett has not shown the star power he had at USC, however, I still feel he could be a good wide out. Not great, but good enough.
The draft this year would also be a place for Carolina to pick up a complementing wide out.
They need secondary help badly but more than one receiving option is crucial.
With a second wide out option, Campbell could gel into a good quarterback in Carolina.
He is a southern boy who attended Auburn and is used to the Southeastern United States culture.
He may never win a Super Bowl but he would be a safe and decent option for the Cats in Charlotte to pick up, now more than ever with the departure of long time franchise face Jake Delhomme.
