The Washington Redskins announced they have signed quarterback Jason Campbell and free agent nose tackle Anthony Bryant. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Campbell is actively seeking a trade, and the signing is not expected to change that.

Campbell, 28, will be entering his sixth NFL season. He has played in 52 career games (all starts) while completing 1,002-of-1,637 passing attempts (61.2%) for 10,860 yards, 55 touchdowns and 38 interceptions with passer rating of 82.3.

In 2009, Campbell started all 16 games for Washington. He completed 327-of-507 passing attempts (64.5%) for 3,618 yards, 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions while establishing a passer rating of 86.4. During the 2009 season, Campbell set career highs in passing attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards, yards per attempt, passing touchdowns and quarterback rating.

Campbell was originally selected by the Redskins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. After spending the 2005 season as the third quarterback, Campbell took over as the Redskins primary starter in Week 10 of the 2006 season vs. Tampa Bay (11/19).

Campbell played collegiately at Auburn, where he led the Tigers to an undefeated record his senior season (2004) and was named SEC Offensive Player of the Year.

A native of Taylorsville, Miss., Campbell was born Dec. 31, 1981.

Bryant, 28, has appeared in nine games (three starts) during his three seasons in the NFL, totaling 11 tackles (five solo). The 6-3, 335-pound Bryant spent the first six games of the 2009 season on the New York Giants practice squad before being moved to practice squad/injured reserve on Oct. 20. Bryant joined the Giants as a free agent (1/20/09) after being out of football for the 2008 season.

Bryant was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the sixth round (178th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. During his rookie campaign, Bryant appeared in four games for the Buccaneers, making four tackles.

After starting the 2006 season on the Buccaneers practice squad, Bryant was signed by the Detroit Lions (11/30), where he appeared in four games, making three starts and totaling eight tackles (four solo).

Bryant split the 2007 offseason with the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens and started the season on the Ravens practice squad before signing with the Miami Dolphins (10/18). Bryant appeared in one game with the Dolphins before being waived during the 2008 offseason.

Before entering the NFL, Bryant played collegiately at Alabama where he appeared in 48 games (five starts) and registered 115 tackles (40 solo), 1.5 sacks, one fumble recovery, one forced fumble and two passes defensed.

A native of Greensboro, Ala., Bryant was born Nov. 6, 1981.
