Colt Brennan settles in quickly with Oakland Raiders, rates Jason Campbell
It takes a lot to enliven an upcoming NFL preseason game, but the prospect of seeing Jason Campbell and Colt Brennan (to say nothing of Rock Cartwright) in the Oakland Raiders' game Thursday night against the Dallas Cowboys just might do the trick.
What? No? Well, okay.
Brennan, cut by the Redskins last week, took the Cult of Colt west and signed over the weekend with the Raiders, who were a little thin at quarterback with injuries to Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye. (Kyle Boller also is on the team.)
"I grew up in Southern California, my dad had Raiders tickets growing up," Brennan told Jerry McDonald. "I was looking at my helmet the other day right before I put it on and I was thinking it's kind of weird but it's also kind of cool to be putting on the silver and black."
He also offered up a scouting report on Campbell.
"Already they have an all-around good guy, a hard worker, a guy that's going to be a leader and gets respect from his players. Jason is a natural, kind of prototypical NFL quarterback. Six-four, he moves really well, he's got a big arm, can throw the ball down field.
"I think Jason's biggest thing that's been hurting him is he's never got situated or gotten stabilized as far as coaching and being in the same system for a couple years. That's when guys start to grow. You don't see too many guys come out, the Peyton Mannings, the Brett Favres, they all went through their growing pains.
"Jason's never really got a chance to get through that."
