CLEVELAND, OH (WDAM) -

Quarterback Jason Campbell is headed out of the "Windy City." The seven-year NFL quarterback has reportedly signed a two-year contract to join the Cleveland Browns.

Campbell, a first-round draft choice out of Auburn University and one-time Taylorsville High School standout, has played 77 games in the league, throwing 76 touchdowns in that span. He spent last season with the Chicago Bears and played the previous two years with the Oakland Raiders, where he went 4-2 as a starter in 2011. 

Injuries and inconsistencies kept him sidelined for much of his time in Chicago, but many feel he could push Brandon Weedon, the Brown's starter last year, for the starting job in 2013.
