Richard Delano Campbell (born December 21, 1958 in Miami, Florida, United States) is a former National Football League quarterback who played for the Green Bay Packers (1981–1984). Campbell attended high school at Santa Teresa High School in San Jose, California. He was an All-American his senior season in 1980 at the University of California. During this season, he set an NCAA record with 43 completed passes in 53 attempts in a losing effort against the Florida Gators.

In 1985, the Packers traded Campbell to the Los Angeles Raiders, where he would never play a game. Campbell has since become a newspaper columnist at Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers.[1]

After Campbell's career ended, the Packers would not draft another quarterback in the first round until 2005, when Aaron Rodgers, also from the University of California, became a Packer.
