Campbell, 33, spent last season with the Bengals as the backup to Andy Dalton. He last meaningful action came with the Browns in 2013, when he went 1-7 in eight starts and posted a passer rating of 76.9 with 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Campbell -- who also started games for the Redskins, Raiders and Bears -- has thrown for 16,771 yards in his career with 87 touchdowns and 60 interceptions.

The Redskins traded up to land Campbell with the 25th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. He spent five seasons in Washington and started all 16 games in both the 2008 and 2009 campaigns.

Campbell could be keeping the door open a crack in case a team decides they want another veteran in camp.
