Jason Campbell was born December 31, 1981 in Laurel, Mississippi, he is an American football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Auburn.

- On November 13, 2006 Campbell was named the Redskins starting quarterback, and on November 19, 2006, Campbell made his first career start. Despite losing in his first start to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Campbell was praised for his poise.

- On November 26, 2006, Campbell had his first win of his pro career, leading the Redskins to a 17–13 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Campbell completed 11 passes on 23 attempts for only 118 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. Campbell threw a 66 yard touchdown pass to tight end Chris Cooley in the fourth quarter

- On August 18, 2007, Campbell was tackled at the knee by Pittsburgh Steelers' DE Brett Keisel in the second preseason game. Initially, the injury looked severe but Campbell eventually walked off the field on his own. Trainers said that Campbell's ligaments were not torn and announced his injury as a bruised knee.

- On December 6, 2007 Campbell dislocated the patellar ligament of his left knee during a game against the Chicago Bears. The injury did not require surgery but Campbell did not play for the remainder of the season.

When Joe Gibbs retired for a second time at the end of the 2007 season, the Redskins hired Jim Zorn, first as Offensive Coordinator and then naming him Head Coach. Zorn said at the time he would also serve as Quarterbacks Coach.

The Redskins started the season with 6 wins and 2 losses, prompting observers to declare Campbell one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks, and the 'tough love' approach from head coach Jim Zorn a success. The Redskins then went on to lose 6 of their last 8 games to end the season at 8-8, missing the playoffs. At the end of the season, it was unclear if the Redskins were on the road to improvement or decline. Questions arose on the future of Campbell as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins.

Despite pursuing other quarterbacks in the off season, the Redskins were unable to acquire Jay Cutler or Mark Sanchez, opting to start Campbell for the last year of his current contract. Campbell and the Redskins ended 2009 with a 4-12 record, one of the worst in Redskins history. The often rocky relationship Campbell had with head coach Jim Zorn came to an end with Zorn's firing. New Washington head coach Mike Shanahan declared that the Redskins would tender Campbell an offer leading up to the 2010 free agent period, ensuring that if Campbell signed with another team, Washington would receive draft picks in compensation.

Jason Campbell was drafted as the 25th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins under General Manager Vinny Cerrato. The Redskins traded up in the draft to get Campbell, surrendering a third round pick in the 2005 NFL draft, along with first and fourth round picks in 2006.
