Former Browns quarterback Jason Campbell never left the AFC North, upon being released last week by Cleveland.

That’s because on Wednesday night, the veteran quarterback agreed to a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. The story was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Campbell, who will be reunited with his former Oakland Raiders coach, Hue Jackson, signed a one-year deal.

He was released one week ago, along with fellow quarterback, Brandon Weeden.

In just one season in Cleveland, Campbell threw for 2,015 yards, 11 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He battled injuries due to bruised ribs and a concussion.

In 79 pro starts, Campbell was 32-47. He had his most success for two seasons in Oakland in 2010 and 2011.

Jackson was the team’s offensive coordinator in 2010 and the head coach the next year.
