Redskins trade Jason Campbell to Oakland (updated)


Updated 2:08 p.m.

The Jason Campbell era in Washington is over.

The Redskins traded the five-year veteran quarterback to Oakland this afternoon in exchange for the Raiders' fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft.

"I'm just glad the situation is over and I'm moving forward," Campbell said this afternoon. "Sometimes change comes in your life, change comes in your career, and you've just got to be ready to adapt. I'm going to go out to Oakland and give 110 percent and do everything I can to help that organization become a winning team.

"Obviously, that was my goal here. Of course, a lot of things happened and we weren't able to accomplish that goal. But hopefully this time around it'll happen. I just wish the best of luck to the Redskins, and I'm moving forward in my career and my life. This is a great opportunity for me, and that's the way I'm looking at it."

A career in Washington that began five years ago with so much promise now moves westward. Campbell's future here was immediately cast in doubt when the team acquired Donovan McNabb from Philadelphia earlier this month. He skipped the team's first minicamp this month and received permission from Washington Coach Mike Shanahan to pursue a trade.

"I talked to [Raiders owner] Al Davis, and he said he wants me there. That means a lot to me," Campbell said. "I'm ready to get to work."

Shanahan called Campbell shortly after the deal was completed. "He just told me he appreciated how I handled myself throughout the whole situation," Campbell said. "He told me he respected me for just being professional, and that he would do anything for me if he could. I appreciated that, because that's how I've tried to be my whole career."

Shanahan said he planned to bring back Campbell as a backup if the five-year veteran did not find a better situation, but the Redskins were not willing to guarantee Campbell a portion of his $3.14 million contract for this season, according to two people familiar with the situation. Campbell's contract would have become guaranteed if he were on Washington's opening-game roster, but the team would have owed Campbell nothing if he were cut before the opener.

Campbell never fulfilled the high expectations of owner Daniel Snyder. The Redskins twice changed offensive philosophies during Campbell's three-plus seasons as a starter, and failed to address the offensive line - their weakest unit since the middle of the 2008 season.

"I guess that's just the hand I was dealt, but the bottom line is winning and we just didn't win enough," Campbell said. "It wasn't because of not wanting to win or not giving the effort; everyone there knows how hard I worked and how much I care about winning. Of course, I wish things could have been better here. I was looking forward to working with Coach Shanahan, and I definitely feel like I could have won a lot finally having someone like him to work with in Washington.

"There were a lot of things that we needed to do to be that type of organization, but there are a lot of things you can't control as a player. I think Washington is going to do a lot of great things under Coach Shanahan, but I have to just learn from this and put it all behind me. You just learn from everything you experience and it just makes you stronger. That's the way I've always looked at things. I'm a Raider now, so I'm going to take all my experiences here and I'll be an even better quarterbacks for the Raiders."

Campbell is eager to begin working with Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. "I think I'll work really well with him," Campbell said. "He has run similar type of offenses that I've been in, both a numbers system and a West Coast system. I don't think it'll be a problem for me to pick up on the offense quickly. I've heard a lot about him, and I'm look forward to getting to know him and helping the Raiders as soon as possible. That's my focus now."

The Redskins had previously acquired Rex Grossman as a free agent to serve as the team's backup this season.

Campbell, who earned $2.857 million during his final year in Washington, was a restricted free agent and signed his tender earlier this month with the Redskins for $3.14 million. He earned nearly $11 million in salary and bonuses in his five seasons with the Redskins.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Campbell has agreed to a contract that will pay him $3.14 million in 2010, plus a $100,000 workout bonus, and $4.5 million in 2011.

In Oakland, Campbell should have a chance to start, as he joins an unimpressive group of quarterbacks that includes JaMarcus Russell, Charlie Frye, Kyle Boller and Bruce Gradkowski.

Campbell was a first-round pick by Joe Gibbs in 2005 - the draft's 29th overall selection. The Redskins traded up to get him, giving away three picks, including their 2006 first-round selection. He was almost immediately anointed the team's quarterback of the future and after holding the clipboard for a year, he took over the starting job midway
through 2006 season.

He's been the team's top quarterback since then and has started its last 32 games. No quarterback has started more games for the Redskins since Mark Rypien led the huddle from 1989 to '93.

Even as the Redskins rotated offensive coordinators, Campbell saw his offensive numbers steadily rise each of the past three seasons, even as the offensive line in front of him struggled.

Last year, Campbell finished the season with career highs in completions (327), completion percentage (64.5), yards (3,618), yards per completion (7.1), touchdowns (20) and quarterback rating (86.4).

He also threw a career-high 15 interceptions and was sacked 43 times, more than all but two other NFL quarterbacks.

During his 52-game career in Washington, Campbell threw for 10,860 yards and 55 touchdowns. He is the team's sixth all-time in yardage, fifth in completions, second in completion percentage.

The team reached the playoffs twice while Campbell was a Redskin, though Mark Brunell was the quarterback in 2005 and Todd Collins played in place of an injured Campbell in 2007.

Oh, Please!

Campbell had every opportunity to succeed. Hew got to play for Joe Gibbs and didn't have the natural ability to displace a rock as a starting quarterback!

There is absolutely nothing in the NFL that is guaranteed. Sometimes you luck out and have an offensive line like Peyton Manning - sometimes you actually are born with natural talent like Peyton Manning. Sometimes you are gifted with the release of a football and sometimes you take longer to do it than to run a 40. Sometimes you are gifted with a fast mind and sometimes you never get it.

Campbell's numbers increased as his dumpoffs did. He was no deep threat and not one single defense feared him - not even the Lions. And when he could have rolled out on his own, he didn't.

The era of excuses for the Lincoln Log quarterback is over. Let him find out what a real mess is like. Washington will seem like club med compared to Oakland.

Good riddance, Campbell. And I was a fan of yours!

Here we go w/ the revisionism. Now that JC's been traded, everyone's complaining about how the Raiders got a steal. The Skins are fortunate to have gotten anything for him. If the 6th rounder makes the team and plays at all, the Skins came out better than they were before the trade. Sheesh.

Posted by: randysbailin | April 24, 2010 1:09 PM | Report abuse

wow.. a 6th round pick for a former 1st round pick that cost the Skins 3 picks overall to move up to select him in the First round of 2005. He is not THAT bad.. He had improved QB stats last year (yes, alot were mop up) and his QB rating was in the middle of the NFL Starting QB pack..

Shanny should walk away from this deal and eat 3 mil until a QB goes down to injury on the other 31 teams and JC's value escalates before the October 15th NFL Trading Deadline. Dumb move if the Skins settle on a 6th round pick for him. And an amazingly smart move by the Raiders.

Though St. Joe's Second Coming did return the franchise to some measure of respectability, it is now obvious he had been away from the game way too long - about 11 years too long.

Using three draft picks to move up in the first round to pick Jason are exibit #1 (thru three).

Hopefully, a nice guy but a poor QB that the league obviously viewed far differently than St. Joe, will now find some measure of happiness in Oakland? Actually, the area is full of wonderful things to do, even if not being a starting NFL QB.

So let me get this straight Diesel. You're saying that because B. Campbell is similar in most areas to T. Williams, who we drafted as a LT, he would make a good RT? That doesn't make sense. The guy I was talking to was talking about a skill set for a RT not a LT. But you're argument is that because B. Campbell is a poor man's Williams that makes him a good RT? Who's football acumen is really lacking here? Sounds like your argument was thought up by a 12 year old girl. As far as insults go, if you want to try and dish it out, be prepared to take it. Go back and read the original set of posts if you think you're perfect in that department my friend. I don't usually call people out until they start some bs.

Jason Campbell has been a noble soldier for the Skins. He got the snot knocked out of him constantly behind that turnstile offensive line, and he kept getting up and taking a beating without complaining.

I feel for him going to Oakland, but I'm glad he gets a chance somewhere other than the franchise that refused to protect him or give him adequate targets to whom he can throw.

Thanks for everything you gave the Redskins, Jason, and good luck in Oakland.

Posted by Mike Florio on April 24, 2010 1:09 PM ET
As it turns out, guard Alan Faneca could have stayed with the Jets, if he'd simply been willing to reduce his salary of $7.5 million.

Per a league source, Faneca refused. And so he's gone.

The tampering rules notwithstanding, Faneca's agent presumably gauged the market to see if Faneca could get a better deal elsewhere. If so, look for Faneca to land with a new team soon.

Never a big fan of JC17; but respected him, always a class athlete. Perhaps just wrong time to be a redskin qb.

Giving him away for 6th rd, pick 190 doesn't = full value, but then how long have the Skins been trying to deal him? And then his agent hit every club in the league looking for a taker. Nothing.

So flip a coin, ...
Take a draft pick (current market value); or continue to wait and hold post draft, to pre-training camp for a deal for next year's draft, maybe?

No one on this board can call Campbell an Awful qb for the Skins. The offense scheme didnt fit him and he still pt up good numbers with an average at best team. A ownership and front office run by fantasy players and guys that needed football for dummies to build a team. Great Oppruntiy for Campbell to prove his worth. Never treated with respect here and that plays into success in the NFL dont look at his wn loss record because i can easily point to his teammates that cost games before him. McNabb is a great qb but all the Haters that complained about jC and throwing wait ti'll Mcnabb is over throwing and bouncing balls to the ground stuff Campbell didnt do. UU can have ur reason for hating Campbell but if you look deeper never got a vote of approval by th owner, always felt he had to do things on his own to be able to keep his job, and to have 6 offense scheme aint easy and he did a great job putting up the numbers he did help developing inconsistent rookie recievers. Zorn system wasnt the best for Campbell. Campbell a guy needs to be protected have a decent run game be able bootleg and play action move the ball vertical when he has time. Zorn changed alot things in order to protect Campbell cause oline thats the struggle they had with the offense. Campbell was better suited in the Gibbs offense but only had half season under him. Everyone raves about Campbell in the NFL he may have a bunch that dont think he is good but watch ESPN nothing bad has been said of him . Watch more football and learn Campbell ceiling has not been hit. JC HAter agendas will now move over to McNabb

Oakland got Campbell for a freakin' steal. A fourth round pick... NEXT year. That's insane.

Guess we'll finally see whether he's any good or not. Personally, I find the evidence undeniable that Campbell was a far superior quarterback than most any Redskins fans gave him credit for. He did the most he could with the least support from the an empty WR corps, busted running backs and a non-existent offensive line. I don't care if you're Joe Montana, you're not playing much better than Campbell did last year.

Oakland just got light-years better for the price of nothing. First smart thing Al Davis has done since he died five years ago.

We need to remember that 4th round pick in 2010 can be used in next years draft as a part of a move up trade. Next years draft will be pretty weak though. The following year will be deeper plus picks will most likely have higher value if the league goes to a rookie salary cap system.

So it (the pick they got for Campbell) could come into play next year potentially. I like the trade. Get the highest pick possible. JC needed to go.

Jason, sorry that you weren't treated better here in DC. You showed class, and you took a pounding without whining.

Danny boy is a classless beef jerky. Vinny was the worse.

I can't blame a player for their skill set, they are what they are, but at least you showed character and put in the effort. That's all a fan can ask for.

I am a fan of the skins, not the old management, hopefully Shanny is in full control now.

This officially makes Jason Campbell the "Tony Mandarich" of the Redskins. Worst 1st round pick bust ever for the Skins when you consider all the picks given up (let alone wasting 4 years of an above average defense).

Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | April 24, 2010 1:26 PM

This is easily the stupidest comment ever...I mean, how you can call the 25th pick who started for 3 1/2 years at a decent enough level the worst bust when we've seen the likes of Heath Shuler and Desmond Howard stink up the joint in the top 5 is at best sheer ignorance. Get off the JC hate and look at the guy for what he was: a decent QB that Gibbs and company reached for about a round too early.

I'm with TWISI...JC is a Raider now. Let's deal with current Redskins. It's one thing to vent when JC was starting, b*tching about him now makes it sound personal.

A 4th round pick in 2012?? Why even take that? And from the only operation more dysfunctional than the Snyderskins!!! It took 3 picks, including the 2006 1st round, to get him. He plays fairly well in an offensive scheme that never had enough talent or intelligent scheme. For a team with a destiny like that of the Hindenberg. Jason will be saying "I'm going to Disneyworld" far sooner than any Redskin QB. McNabb will only go to Disneyworld to recover from injuries suffered playing for Washington.

I don't understand why draft picks, which essentially amount to a total roll of the dice, are valued so much more highly than established players by NFL GM's. Jason Campbell, who we gave up three draft picks to be able to select and is a middle of the pack starting quarterback in the NFL, worth only a 4th round pick two years from now? And Albert Haynesworth, the most dominant defensive lineman in the NFL only worth a second round pick? You're kidding me, right? There are a ton of women out there who are better looking than my wife and it's intriguing to think about rolling the dice for one of them, but someone would have to give me Miss America to get me to part with her. NFL GM's behave the opposite of that.

Then they trade back with miami for the pick we traded away for Jason Taylor and get a TE! What? Then they give Campbell away for a 4th, 2years from now. That's AWFUL!

I have NEVER seen a player act so professionally,get beat to crap from a non-existent line,get up brush himself off and do it again, with such non deserved dignity. We treated this kid like crap and to a man should be embarrassed. This man did every thing that was ever asked of him and more and the Redskins organization treated him like a slave,what's next will Jason get his 40 acres and a mule. This is without a doubt the worst treatment of a player in the organizations history and that includes the racist that started it Georg Preston Marshall. Hard to believe in the Nations capitol something like this could occur,I guess the complete Conservative Right Republicans have totally taken over our society. We should all be ashamed at the way this young man was treated,how do you convince your children that hard work,loyalty and honesty are the RIGHT things to do when we handle such a fine young man as Jason Campbell like we have? Good Luck. I guess it is do as I say not as I do. I hope Snyder lies awake at night thinking of how he treated this guy(not likely,hell he would just cut him down like the tree's in his backyard that were owned by the Federal Government right?). This makes me sick. So he's not THE guy,ok, why did we have to make a wh$$e out of him?And again,why not keep him as a back up,Rex Grossman,are you friggin kidding me?Donavan could have mentored,taught and helped him, and if you're convinced you don't want him at all wait for the season to start and the inevitable injuries that happen every year. Apparently we are the ONLY organization left that can manage to make Al Davis look coherent.

If a fourth in 2012 is all we could get, we should have kept him as back-up or traded him for players.

I am just hoping this has been misreported and that there are conditional elements that will boost that pick if he performs well.

So far I am really not liking what the front office has done. I am fine with Trent Williams over Okung, Williams has better feet. Not wild about the rest of the draft and it's not a good sign when Al Davis comprehensively outwits you.

Still, it shows you how poorly Campbell was valued, if Buffalo wasn't willing to compete with a fourth in 2012.

Oh, Please!

Campbell had every opportunity to succeed. Hew got to play for Joe Gibbs and didn't have the natural ability to displace a rock as a starting quarterback!

There is absolutely nothing in the NFL that is guaranteed. Sometimes you luck out and have an offensive line like Peyton Manning - sometimes you actually are born with natural talent like Peyton Manning. Sometimes you are gifted with the release of a football and sometimes you take longer to do it than to run a 40. Sometimes you are gifted with a fast mind and sometimes you never get it.

Campbell's numbers increased as his dumpoffs did. He was no deep threat and not one single defense feared him - not even the Lions. And when he could have rolled out on his own, he didn't.

The era of excuses for the Lincoln Log quarterback is over. Let him find out what a real mess is like. Washington will seem like club med compared to Oakland.

I truly hope JC makes the Skins regret the decision to give him away for next to nothing. My feeling and my hope is that JC may be a late bloomer.

JC benefited from having Zorn as his QB coach for two years. He benefited from rubbing elbows with 2 HOF coaches (Gibbs and Shanahan). Now, he's going to an offensive system that appears to be a better fit for him. Plus, he's going to a team that wanted him.

By being at the right place at the right time, a man can go from good to greatness. JC sounds like he's going forward with the right attitude, and I have a hunch he will be up to the challenge.

That said, it was time for him to move on. The Skins had clearly gone in another direction. Thankfully, Allen and Shanahan, and not VC were at the helm when it became time to send JC on his way. In the end, finally, JC's exit was handled with some measure of dignity and class, which was the very least that he deserved.

For all the complaining that everyone is anonymously making about how Jason Campbell wasn't a great quarterback, wasn't a great Washington quarterback, or wasn't the winner they wanted, where is all the complaining that was heard the past two years about an inferior Redskins offense, and an inferior Redskins offense around the quarterback. Jason Campbell never fulfilled the high expectations of owner Daniel Snyder in part because the Redskins twice changed offensive philosophies during Campbell's three-plus seasons as a starter, and failed to address the offensive line. How many people here, anonymous, of course, think that all the "great" quarterbacks in the NFL could have been "great" under the same conditions. And, don't forget that the Redskins tried last year to make repeated attempts to get a "starting" quarterback (both Mr. Cutler and a draft pick quarterback) to replace Campbell without addressing the offense? Doesn't appear that the team was supportive of the person in the leadership position that most people here are criticizing.

1. Players who leave here tend to do better (Champ, Brad, Ryan, Pierce, Stephen, etc.)
2. And players who arrive here tend to do worse (Fat Albert, Jeff George, Deion, Bruce, Jason, Adam, Suisham, Randle El, Alvin Harper and James Washington, I could go on for days)
3. Coaches that depart do better (Norv, Greg Williams) and coaches that come here do worse (Gibbs II, Spurrier, Marty)

Jason, not your fault that Dan/Gibbs/Vinny traded like 3 picks for you, then surrounded you with a new fun bunch and no O line. Thus, their fault you needed extra insurance while here running for your life. Not your fault that Dan provided you with like 4 coaches and 10 O coordinators + a 99 yr old bingo caller.

Wish he guy nothing but the best. Say what you want about his play (I say he didn't have a chance), but he always handled the off field stuff with total professionalism. Unfortunately, Oakland has even less talent than Washington had during his time.

Not even close.

Neither is Jerry, who like Al, have 3 rings.
3 more than Dan.

Say your job, as sales manager, your employer gave you 4 senior sales managers and 6 changing products in 5 years. And you had a poor team hired by the senior managers?

Would you succeed?
If not is that your fault?
Or leaderships fault?

Al Davis told Jason that he'll really like throwing to the Raiders cast of receivers: Fred Biletnikoff, Cliff Branch and Dave Casper. There's this kid from Notre Dame, Tim Brown, that they also have coming in. The competition at QB will be stiff, w/ Lamonica and Stabler competing for the starting job as well.

The most overused term is now officially 'class act', as in JC was a real class act while he was getting pounded into the turf last year.

I'm gonna start calling everyone that I encounter a 'class act'. The cashier at Giant, after she hands me my receipt: "Thank you, Mable. You're a real class act!" If someone allows me to merge into a lane on the Beltway, I'm gonna hold up a sign that says: "Thanks for letting me in, you're a class act!" I might even call my dog a class act as he greets me.

I always thought Campbell was a good guy so I hope he does well in Oakland. At least he'll get to wear those cool Raiders Uniforms instead of those racist Deadskins duds. By the way you Deadskins fans will be chanting "we want Rex" after McNabb tosses a few of those grass cutters.

Thank you soooooooo much Joe Gibbs for costing the Redskins TWO 1st rounders and a 3rd, and all they get in return is ONE 4th. Sounds like a great deal, and maybe that's why JG stunk as a GM.

Posted by: Ireland2 | April 24, 2010 5:08 PM | Report abuse

Boy, I predicted that Campbell will end up in Oakland, when Shanahan took over as the new 'Skins coach and I was right! Like I said before, from the worst owner in the East Coast to the worst owner in the West Coast, Jason just doesn't seem to get a break, does he?

Posted by: TalkingHead1 | April 24, 2010 5:11 PM | Report abuse

So the Donovan McNabb/Jason Campbell maneuvering can now be analyzed in terms of what the Skins gave up and received. The Skins replaced Jason Campbell w/ Donovan McNabb. In order to do that, they gave up a high 2nd round pick. The Eagles used that pick to get Nate Allen, a well regarded safety out of South Florida who's already being penciled in to start. The Eagles also have a 3rd of a 4th round pick coming from the Skins next season (or 2012). The Redskins get back the Raiders 4th round pick. Let's generously wash out the pick that the Skins get from the Raiders w/ the one that they have to give to the Eagles. Is it better for the Skins to have McNabb (vs. JC) and not having the player they would've gotten w/ the 37th pick? We'll find out.

It'll be fun to listen to Danny Boy Radio after McNabb goes on the DL after his 25th sack. McNabb has no idea what he has in store for him with this sorry-assed franchise.

Jason Campbell is a class individual and gave the Skins a great effort. It's not his fault we never had a decent offensive line, and I am convinced from watching the Skins and football in general for over 40 years, that had he had one, he would still be here. I for one, am proud to have had him on our team and I wish him the very best going forward.

As a lifelong Cowboy fan, let me tell you skins a thing or two: 1. Mcnabb is old now and not the fleet dude he once was; 2. With an offensive line like the skins, the number of interceptions and sacks will increase and 3. Oakland got the better end of the deal.. Go Cowboys.

Posted by: mavajuan | April 24, 2010 5:35 PM | Report abuse

JC, best of luck to you. The grace with which you handled the horrible mistreatment from the Skin's brass will always ensure my respect. Best of luck in Oakland and I hope you go on to have a sensational career. May you find some stability in Oakland that you didn't find in Ashburn, though I know that's probably a stretch. At least you won't have to put up with Snyder any more.

My beloved Skins, unfortunately, will suck again this year as 34-year-old "throw it in the dirt" McNabb gets dumped on his a$$ on every other down and gets carted off the field for good around game seven or so. Then we get to watch Grossman run whatever is left of the season's promise into the ground.

Buy high, sell low. It's only draft picks and not money. But then there must be a reason other teams win and we don't. Could not be that since Casserly our owner/gms never have figured out that you can build through the draft.

How many more players do the Skins need to purge to rid themselves of the terrible mistake of bringing back Joe Gibbs? A man that never knew how to evaluate talent. First move of his comeback? Throw millions of dollars at Mark Brunell when Jacksonville was about to run him out of town. Next great move? Move up in the draft to take Campbell. He helped destroy the team in return for two meaningless playoff games!

Ok, Jason lost here.
But Brunell lost here too. So did Ramsey, Hostetler, George, the ex Gator QB's, Banks, Heath and Gus and every QB since Mark, And think, not 3 fans wanted Rypien to remian when he was run off with his "good riddance".

Norv lost here, but so did Marty who went 8-8 (not a winning record), and Spurrier (who lost with his college playbook), and Gibbs II (who lost with his 1988 playbook) and (as he did lose more games than he won that's defined as losing), and Zorn.

All of the free agent jackpots lost here too the past 10 years and so did the draft picks.

Common theme: they all lost

And stay tuned, I'll add Shanny (without Elway) who (never did even coach TWO playoff games without John carrying him to greatness) and McNabb (whose great clock management in the 4th quarter of the SB was amazing as the team trained by 10 and HE called 10 huddles with 5 mintues left).

I was very impressed with the long line of teams clamoring to trade with the Redskins for the rights to the ever-so talented, Class-Act Jason Campbell. That bidding war was INTENSE! I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see which of the other 31 teams would offer the largest string of first and second round picks for Campbell.

What? There was only one team that made an offer? A what? A fourth round two years from now? For a sure-fire, can't-miss future Hall of Fame QB like Campbell?

Boy, those 30 teams that didn't get in on this don't know ANYTHING about football. And Al Davis is BRILLIANT for smuggling Campbell out of Washington. The Raiders are headed to the Super Bowl THIS YEAR!

campbell was the qb for an auburn team that
had two first round picks at running back.

in other words, auburn did not depend on jason campbell for their success. they ran the ball.

your hero joe gibbs couldn't see that!

so today the skins got a 4th round pick they can't use until 2012 for a qb they gave two 1st round picks for and wasted 5 years on the project.

in the real business world that kind of incompetence gets you fired.

I'm happy for Jason. I wished he had asked for a trade before Zorn. I just never believed that his abilities would enhance if he remained. A collapsing front line does not help long term either. Going to the Raiders is not good either.

You're a professional Jason without a doubt. Wish you the best. Hope you get a Super Bowl ring before its time to hang it up.

My best wishes to Jason. He was indeed a professional player and was never in the news for the wrong reason like say Vick and Big Ben. He deserved better and although Oakland isn't the best opportunity he could get, I hope he succeeds and maybe even help the Raiders out of its "laughing-stock" status.

All of you who are trying to bash Joe Gibbs and his picks are obviously clueless. His winning percentage is not an accident. His second time around, he was here for 4 years and took us to the playoffs twice. Look at what has happened since he left (and before he came back). Apparently you have'nt been Skins fans for long, if you are at all.

I wish Jason the best, a class man in a sport where the squeaky wheel gets paid. His stats are better than many QBs during the same time frame, and this playing for a rudder-less team with a radio guy at the GM spot. I don't know if his situation will be any better in Oakland, but it cannot be worse. Best of luck to him, and I hope he gets a chance to throw out there.

A 4th round pick in 2012...? WTF

I'm not rooting for McNabb....

Snyder blows.

McNabb won't finish the season. Going to miss Campbell.

Typical Snyder MO. Sign a flashy name just in time to help with their season ticket sales drive.

Must be tough to con some old loyal redkins fans, that can not afford the over inflated tix prices, when your team is 4-12, & sucked for decade straight.

Much easier to bilk people after you sign the next big name who is suppose to make it all right.

I want a refund for the Zorn era, since he was clearly a stop gap coach. Snyder bilked season ticket holders for 2 years knowing he was waiting for the next big name coach. Is there a lawyer in the house...?

"The team reached the playoffs twice while Campbell was a Redskin, though Mark Brunell was the quarterback in 2005 and Todd Collins played in place of an injured Campbell in 2007."

Where is T.O.? The Skins really need someone with his skills.

After taking "Good Rex"/"Bad Rex", picking McNabb, keeping Haynesworth as a Cowboys fan I'm just waiting for the team to bring in T.O. Shannahan is just another figure head and Snyder is still the master puppeteer for all the skins. If you skin fans think we Cowboy fans are laughing now, just wait until after the first game.
Last year will be the one you say "At least we won 4".

THIS WAS A GOOD DECISION FOR CAMPBELL. AS USUAL, A STUPID MOVE ON THE REDSKINS PART. McNABB HAD HIS BEST DAYS WITH THE EAGLES BUT COULDN'T GET A SUPERBOWL WIN. AND HE HAD A GREAT SUPPORTING CAST.

I AM A REDSKINS FAN AS YOU CAN TELL FROM MY USER ID; MAYBE ONE DAY SYNDER WILL ADMIT THAT HE CANNOT DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THE TEAM AND LEAVE THE RUNNING TO THOSE HE TO DO IT.

Why hasn't anyone pointed out that this is a CONDITIONAL fourth round pick that the Skins likely will never get?

From John Clayton:
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft10/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=5132435

"Al Davis got it right this year. He added to a solid draft by picking up Campbell for a conditional fourth-round pick, whose conditions appear to be unachievable. For the Redskins to get that fourth-round pick, the Raiders would either have to make the playoffs or Campbell would have to go to the Pro Bowl. Odds of that are about as good as JaMarcus Russell being on the Raiders' roster this fall."
