Raiders Officially Name Jason Campbell Their Starting QB Entering 2010

SI’s Jim Trotter has reported via twitter that Raiders coach Tom Cable has formally named Jason Campbell as the starting quarterback for the Raiders and indicated there would be no open competition for the job. Cable praised Campbell’s “leadership and professionalism” and said the players have responded to that.

Periodic 2009 starter Bruce Gradkowski is the favorite to win the backup job and proved to the Raiders last year that he can be a competent starter should Campbell get injured. Campbell was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 1st round of the 2005 draft but has thus far not achieved the level of excellence he displayed in college.He was traded to the Raiders in April 2010 for a draft pick.
