    Oakland Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson made no bones about it: Jason Campbell is his starter.

    If newly named backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski wants to earn a starting spot, according to, he will have to do it elsewhere. Gradkowski's contract is up after the coming season.

    Gradkowski considers himself a starter, as he told Pro Football Weekly, but sure loves Oakland, too: "I'd love to stay here. I think the Raiders want me back, as well. Hopefully it makes sense for everyone and it works out. Whatever my part is, I just want to be a Raider and help this team and go from there."

    One snap at a time, Grad.
