The Chicago Bears announced Tuesday that they have reached an agreement with quarterback Jason Campbell on a one-year deal.
Florio reported earlier in the day that the sides were in “deep negotiations,” and the contract was finalized late Tuesday evening.
Campbell, undoubtedly a big upgrade on Jay Cutler backups of yesteryear Todd Collins and Caleb Hanie, is still only 30 years old. He holds a career touchdown-to-interception ratio of 74:50 and has completed 60.8 percent of his career passes.
The one-year contract means Campbell will likely reach unrestricted free agency again in 2013.
