Ex-Bengals QB Jason Campbell reportedly set to retire
Former Bengals quarterback Jason Campbell doesn't seem interested in trying to latch on as a backup with a sixth NFL team. Instead, it appears he'll call it a career.
Campbell, who declined offers from multiple teams earlier this offseason, is planning to retire, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The 10-year veteran saw light duty as Andy Dalton's backup last season, completing 11 of 19 passes in four games.

The 33-year-old Campbell started eight games in 2013 for Cleveland, passing for 2,015 yards with 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Campbell never quite lived up to expectations as a first-round pick of Washington back in 2005, compiling a 32-47 record as a starter.
