Someone is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little late.

That Wednesday tweet from the account of former NFL quarterback Jason Campbell is a fake, a source close to Campbell tells PFT.

Josina Anderson of ESPN.com separately reports that “[t]his isn’t Jason Campbell’s twitter page, & he has told me he’s still…not coming back to the NFL at this time.”

The first tweet on the fake account was posted on May 9. So why would someone make a fake Twitter page for a mid-level player who has been out of football for more than a year? Maybe that’s the genius of it.

To summarize, Jason Campbell is still retired. And someone out there needs to find a much better hobby.

  1. Campbell knows no one wants him. The “letter” JaMarcus’ agent/PR person sent out with no bites shows no one wants him either… …no one other than the Eagles offered Bradford a contract…are we sensing a theme here?

    Enjoy the payday now Sammy. Hopefully its your last and you wash out of the league ASAP.

  2. can we stop with the word “retired”? just because he quit football doesnt mean he doesnt work.

  3. The only way they can hack a facebook or twitter account is to steal the password through a wi-fi device or the person has to click on a stupid link asking him for a password or to change his password. I have been using these services since they first came out and have never been hacked because I don’t click on all that crap they put on the screens and I don’t respond to emails telling me I need to change my password. If my password needs changed, I know it already. The system does catch my 13 year old and I spend an incredible amount of time cleaning viruses and fixing her hacked account but if Jason Campbell is only as smart as my 13 year old girl, then that explains how is account is hacked and stuff like this gets put out. And that is true of all these morons who say their accounts are hacked. They can’t hack your account without your help. Think about it.

  4. I was one of the foolish ones that USED hit bad links I learned the hard way. Was sliced and diced so bad I three just about every laptop and PC away. Just saying it happens a lot of one is not careful.

  6. Although he’s been out of football for a year, Jason Campbell is probably still better than the starting QBs on some NFL rosters (including Denver).

  7. Also a fake is the Raider family mantra, we will always have your back, death is the silver and black………….snore. Talk to Marcus Allen, Timmy Brown, Rich Gannon and dozens of others who have been banned from Raider land forevah!

  8. That is the beauty of it.

    I remember a few years ago some guy made a fake Daunte Culpepper account and got Mark Rypien to talk to him thinking it was really DC. He then begged Rypien to get him a QB job.

    It was freaking hilarious.

  9. I must not have hit submit previously, No way Florio deleted the comment previously because of thin skin.

    To be in this line of work he’d have to be able to handle a little constructive criticism or else he’d have to find another line of work.

  10. I don’t know why the hate on Jason Campbell. He was a good QB, just not a great one. He completed passes and had few interceptions. He wasn’t good enough to win a game by himself, but he wouldn’t lose one either.

  11. The last line, come on. I think it’s funny even if it’s JC himself doing it.

    Watching the media fall all over themselves to be the first to get a story out, without even verifying it’s true is a good hobby to have…..

  12. It was frustrating to have Campbell as the Redskins quarterback. He would show just enough flashes of good play to get your hopes up, and then…
