When the Colts were looking for quarterback help after Andrew Luck lacerated his kidney last season, they reached out to Jason Campbell about joining the team.
Campbell turned down the overture from offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who coached Campbell in Cleveland, because he was “just kind of chilling right now.” The time for chilling has apparently come to an end.
Campbell posted on Twitter Wednesday that he wanted to “officially let the world know I’m ready to play again.” Campbell invited interested parties to get into contact with his agent Joel Segal.
Campbell saw action in four games with the Bengals in 2014 and made eight starts for the Browns during the 2013 season. He’s also played for the Bears, Raiders and Redskins, who drafted Campbell in the first round of the 2005 draft.
The Colts offer wasn’t the only one that Campbell had to join a team at some point in 2015 and having a player with his experience in a backup role may be appealing to teams this year as well.
