The Factory of Sadness has made Browns fans a little more happy by firing a pair of key assembly line workers.
First it was Brandon Weeden, a failed first-round pick in 2012 who desperately wanted out. Now, it’s veteran Jason Campbell, who was due to be paid a $250,000 roster bonus if still on the team after 4:00 p.m. ET Wednesday.
The team has announced that Campbell has indeed been cut.
Campbell, a first-round pick of Washington in 2005, started eight games last year, losing seven. But he has shown that he can still be a competent backup quarterback, and he should get an opportunity to land on a depth chart somewhere — especially since there aren’t 32-times-three competent quarterbacks to go around.
