NFL Free Agency: Jason Campbell Visiting Rams

The St. Louis Rams will get a visit from Raiders free agent quarterback Jason Campbell sometime in the near future, according to ESPN. At the moment, Sam Bradford is the only quarterback under contract with the Rams, so backup is a need. Campbell would actually be a smart addition as a backup for the Rams.

Campbell was playing well enough for the Raiders in 2011, before a broken collar bone ended his season and started the ball rolling on the whole Carson Palmer thing.

30-years old, Campbell is a true backup at this point in his career. However, he is a backup with plenty of starting experience, unlike the Rams' recent string of number two quarterbacks.

Game management is Campbell's trademark, nothing fancy. He can get the ball to receivers and with a solid running game that limits his exposure, Campbell can keep the Rams competitive if they lose Sam Bradford to injury again this year ... or worse.

If they did add a backup like Campbell, finding a rookie with some upside in the later rounds of this draft or the next would also be a good idea.
