Redskins give Campbell first-round tender

Quarterback Jason Campbell has received a first-round tender from the Redskins.

Although Coach Mike Shanahan has said he expects Campbell "to be here" this season, he has not committed to him as the starter.

Shanahan expects Campbell "to be here," Jason Reid and Rick Maese reported last week from the scouting combine in Indianapolis and he has "big admiration for Jason and how he's handled himself through some very tough situations with a beat-up offensive line and the way he's handled himself as a quarterback."

The first-round tender means that any team can sign Campbell to an offer sheet and the Redskins would have seven days in which to match the offer or receive the team's first-round draft pick in return for him.

Monetarily, a team would have to match roughly $3.1 million in salary, a figure that is 110 percent of Campbell's base salary.

Why so sneaky Cindy?

Does this mean the #4 pick will be an OL now? I think most of us know it should be on the OL anyway.

I really hope they go for Okung. you also have to think now though, if we get compensation in this years draft for a few of those players, we very well may go after a qb with #4. Oh the suspense!

so if Shanny expects JC to be here.. along with a 1st round tender...
Isnt that a back-handed complement.. Meaning.. no other team in their right mind would give up a 1st and 3 Mil in salary for JC. And we, (Skins) who are still in our "right mind" wont give you an extension, either.
So he is essentially, "Sign and Trade Bait".

No way he comes back. Total trade bait. Redskins are just hoping that someone gives us a first round pick. But in reality, we'll take a 3rd.

Either way, IT WILL BE A QB AT #4. Will not be a LT. LT will come via free agency.

As I've stated before, Shanny will SAY all the right things, but in reality, he doesn't want Campbell back. He's trade bait until the Skins are assured of a QB in the first round, then he becomes expendable.

If, when the draft occurs, the Skins are unable to land either Bradford or Clausen, Campbell will be in the mix, but this time he'll have to compete for the job with Todd Collins and Colt Brennan, the way it should've been the last two seasons.

If they do land Bradford or Clausen, Collins starts with Brennan as back up until Bradford or Clausen is ready to start.

Either way, Clownble, don't let the door hit your arse on the way out. Wah! Wah! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Campbell actually wants to be here, play for Shanahan and this new system. Then there is a clown in Rogers, who sucks and wants to leave, and we put a first round tender on him. I think we should have put him up for a second round tender, let him go, and drafted a CB in the second round. Either way, I love Campbell, and I think he is going to complement Shanahan's running attack well.

as always, it's another idiotic assessment by jsmith33351 himself. i'm surprised that you could actually look at yourself every morning without having the sudden urge to choke the shyt out of yourself. i mean really....if i thought you knew anything about football, i'd actually take you seriously but you've got about as much common sense as an acme brick!

I simply don't understand all of this hatred directed at JC17.

It's not as if the Dude don't know how to play the position or anything, is it?

It's not like he can't read defenses or take a seven step drop and throw anything -- or even starting from a shotgun position, complete any pass for more than 7 yards down field.

It's not as if the offensive coordinators haven't had to simplify every play to a predictable level of dull comprehension for him while also keeping extra players clustered around him to block through his dithering and indecisiveness.

And it's not as if he has stunk up the joint for the last five years or anything.

So why all the hatred?

Personally, would like to see JC17 signed as the QB for Life of the Redskins -- to something like a 15 or 20 year deal at franchise player rates -- and then we can start to honor his contributions to this city by inscribing his name on the stadium's ring of honor.

Stop the hatred!

I'm just sorry they tendered him at all, listening to all the JC haters he's not even worth a 3rd round pick. Hope he gets traded, nobody comming into a system like the skins currently have or had over the last three years should have their talent judged. I really hope we bring in Bradfrod, I wish him well, but not many people can take what JC took last year and want to come back, Collins, Bradford plays 5 games with the hits JC took goodbye shoulder (Bradford) and Collins is already shellshot, first 35 million guarenteed to 4th rd pick pissed away . Jason has to be either real stupid to try to please the insane skins fans that hate him or if given chance will run like hell when given the chance 3.1 mil for the hits he took no freakin way I would want out. He's being treated like a tackling dummy. I hope he stays has a great year and walks, but not until the haters get on board and cheer him. Then when he walks you can hate management for listening to all the BS that is being used to judge him.

Now to be constructive I want to see JC and Pike get rid of one of the other QB's spend money on the o-line and corners.

Hail Skins
