After hedging for a few days, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has made a change.
Per Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, Chudzinski announced that quarterback Jason Campbell would start this week in place of Brandon Weeden.
If there was ever any doubt that the Browns were ready to hit reset at the position this offseason, this should clear it up.
Campbell was leapfrogged by Brian Hoyer earlier this season, and if they’re willing to replace Weeden at this point, he’s clearly not part of their future thinking.
Campbell started a game for the Bears in 2012, and has also played some replacement-level football for the Raiders and Redskins.
He’s the 20th Browns starting quarterback since 1999, while he sets the stage for No. 21.
