Following two days of meetings and on-field work, Campbell, a nine-year NFL veteran, has earned the confidence of his teammates.
“I think Jason’s going to do a great job,” said Pro Bowl left tackle
That’s why he kept his advice to Campbell short and sweet before Wednesday’s practice.
“When you get an opportunity, take advantage of it. That’s all you can say,” McGahee said. “Jason has prepared (well) for his opportunity. He’s been in this situation before. He was a first-round pick, played in a lot of games. This is his time to show people what he can do.”
Campbell brings to the offense 71 career NFL starts, and a positive touchdown-to-interception ratio in each of the seasons in which he has started at least six games. And in gaining that experience, Campbell adds a “strong” sense of leadership to the huddle, according to Thomas.
“He’s steady,” Thomas said. “He’s got a lot of experience in this league. He’s played in a lot of different spots, so he knows how to get the job done at quarterback.
“It’s really valuable to have any game experience in the NFL, and to have as many starts as he does is really valuable for us. This will be his first start with the Browns, but he’s played in every system you can imagine, so he’s quick to pick things up.”
As far as a transition from Weeden to Campbell, the Browns’ offensive linemen believe it should be seamless after a few days of practice.
