Campbell, Haynesworth, McIntosh also wait to learn their fate


NFL draft prospects aren't the only ones today waiting to learn where they are headed next.

Veteran quarterback Jason Campbell has been available since the Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb on April 4. Although Coach Mike Shanahan has said he would bring back Campbell as a backup if the Redskins do not receive fair compensation for him in a trade, the Redskins are expected to move Campbell before the conclusion of the three-day draft that begins tonight at 7:30.

As for defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, the Redskins still are open to trading the Pro Bowler, who does not want to be a nose tackle in the team's new 3-4 defensive scheme. The Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions are believed to be the teams most interested in acquiring Haynesworth, but the two-time all-pro might be stuck in Washington this season unless the Redskins receive a lot in exchange for him, a person familiar with the situation said.

Linebacker Rocky McIntosh skipped the recent minicamp and is frustrated that he only received a one-year tender offer instead of a multiyear contract extension. McIntosh hinted he might be traded, but the Redskins will not give away McIntosh to make him happy.

The buzz linking the Redskins with safety Eric Berry continues to increase throughout the league. Berry recently had a lot of good things to say about the Redskins' new regime, and he told me he thought he could thrive working under defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.

Keep Rocky.

Get a 2nd for Big Al and a 3rd for JC.

Eric Berry would be a phenomenal pick. Too bad many people would diss him simply because he's not an OT.

If you had the opportunity to draft the next Troy Palamalu or Ed Reed, you wouldn't think twice. Berry is that kind of player.

If as "elfreako" suggests the Redskins could get a 2nd and 3rd for "Fat Albert" and "JC" then, by all means go get E. Berry. With the two picks that would be picked up in the proposed trade, the O~Line could be addressed. Yes, without the two big LT's however, still the O~Line would be addressed quite well and E. Berry would be obtained. I think that could go a long way toward helping the 2010 Redskins team. That's a GREAT post.
