Jets are the latest to give Bruce Campbell a chance

Bruce Campbell AP

With outside linebacker Jermaine Cunningham on injured reserve, the Jets have filled their roster spot with a guy used to being there.

The team announced that veteran offensive lineman Bruce Campbell was signed to fill Cunningham’s roster spot.

The one-time workout warrior at the Combine (the Raiders chose him in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft) hasn’t done much at the pro level. He played 14 games for the Raiders, but was traded for another guy who never plays (Mike Goodson).

He appeared in five games with the Panthers as a reserve in 2012 but missed last year with a shoulder problem and still hasn’t started an NFL game. The Redskins brought him to camp earlier this year, but that didn’t last long either.

    I remember media talk that he was going to be a top ten pick all based on a work out!

    I hope he plays Ash. Sam Ax is cool, sure, but Ash is the bomb.

    Maybe they ought to try him out at a couple of other positions; he could be a real Jack of All Trades.

    All I know is slick50 is the biggest Raider lover there is…how else do you explain posting on EVERY Raiders story, but never posting anywhere else? Just admit how much you love the Raiders already.

    Besides Vernon Davis, can anyone think of a workout warrior from the combine that was any good in the NFL?

    This guy is the prototypical faiders draft pick.
    ————
    This guy was projected by many to be a first round Raiders pick. Oakland drafted him in the 4th, and traded him straight up for Mike Goodson. They got 775 yards out of Goodson in 2012, and let him walk before he got in legal trouble. Seems like an atypical Raider pick to me, but slickster is the expert on all things Oakland, so I will defer to him.
