Jason Campbell has reached a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The former Cleveland Browns QB who is currently a free agent is now a Bengal for the next year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter and pointing out that this would reunite Campbell with Hue Jackson.

Jackson was head coach of the Oakland Raiders when Campbell was with that team.

The deal which is for one year will presumably see Campbell as a veteran backup to Andy Dalton who still seems to be the number one there.

Dalton has had a good year in 2013 with some impressive displays by the team as a whole. But the depth chart at the Bengals isn't large enough, or talented enough yet, to cope should something happen.

Rumour has it that there was a place with the Bengals and the decision was between Jason Campbell and Ryan Fitzpatrick who has been a Bengal before.

Hiring Campbell is certainly a move in the playoff direction for the Bengals looking for experience in Playoff situations.

Campbell's last salary was around $1.5 million so there isn't any expectation for this to be a big money deal.
