Sidelined most of the regular season with a broken collarbone and ultimately replaced by (expensive) veteran Carson Palmer, it doesn't seem likely the Oakland Raiders will retain the services of Jason Campbell in the offseason.
It's a shame, really, as Campbell was just beginning to come into his own as a starter before being struck down with injury in Week 6. Though the Raiders need a solid backup for Palmer, paying Campbell would just be too much for the already cap-strapped Raiders, but he shouldn't have much trouble finding a new home.
What remains to be seen is if there are any teams interested in bringing Campbell on as a starter. Campbell, who spent the majority of his career with the Washington Redskins before being brought on by the Raiders in 2010, has about a 60 percent career completion average and has never thrown more interceptions than touchdowns in a single season.
However, he's not a big play quarterback, and his skill set, while extremely solid, is nowhere near the upper echelon of quarterbacks in the NFL. With a glut of talented quarterbacks likely to declare for the draft this year, the veteran Campbell may be an odd man out when it comes to nabbing a starting job.
Still, he's an intelligent, capable quarterback who would benefit from a team boasting some higher level receiving talent. In terms of experienced passers on the free-agent market, there's none better than Campbell in 2012.
