Redskins Offense in 2009 and 2010

[B][U]2009[/U]: Jason Campbell[/B] established career highs in completion percentage [64.5%], passer rating [86.4], passing yards [3618] and touchdown passes [20] despite having a weak running back corps, an under-achieving receivers and arguably the worst offensive line in the NFL. In addition to problems with the roster, Campbell also dealt admirably with a complete breakdown in the offensive coaching staff, with a new [or really old, depending on how you look at it] play-caller being brought in midseason. He did miss some open receivers and hasn't really proven he can win a big game, but when you look at what is likely to be available in the draft and free agency, Campbell looks better and better. One thing is for certain: Jason Campbell proved he is one of the toughest players in the league this past year.
[B][U]2010[/U]: Campbell will likely be a restricted free agent and can be retained for at least one more season at the bargain basement price of about $3 million. I think the Redskins would be nuts not to do this and find out what Campbell could do with a real offense and play-caller supporting him. Todd Collins is pretty much finished as a backup and should be replaced. If new head coach Mike Shanahan likes Colt Brennan he should be promoted. If not, he should be discarded. There has been much talk about the Redskins pursuing a quarterback with the 4th pick in the draft this April. I believe that would be a big mistake, since none of the quarterbacks in the draft impress me enough to merit such a selection. What Washington should do is trade down, if possible, and stockpile more picks [they have only 5 right now] to address pressing needs at other positions. [/B]

You helpfully point out that Jason Campbell is cheap. His bang-for-the-buck might be underappreciated.

He's not going to be that cheap, I think the lowest possible tender is in the $4.7-$4.8 million area, but in two respects that's pocket change: Danny-bucks, and percentage of franchise tag value (20-25%).
EDIT--Actually more like 25-33%. Still...[/I]

Re: Redskins Offense in 2009 and 2010
im afraid that this will be his 6th system and he will fail. But i think zorn's and shanahans offenses are simular i would think anyhow. i would like to give him a shot and give him a line and see how well he does...portis was right tho he needs to step up...if hes gonna be the leader he has the be it not only on the field but on the sidelines, in the huddle, on the practice field as well as in the locker room. Be vocal and show some emotion. Looking lost isnt gonna get your teammates enthusiatic about getting behind you and busting their asses for you.

Only problem for JC is it is going to take 2-3 years for us to really get a solid line in place, if not more. Don't expect 2010 to be that much better than 2009 if we still keep the same roster. If we didn't have such cruddy depth at QB, I would almost be tempted to trade JC if we could for some decent picks, but I know that wouldn't be very prudent given our current QB situation.

Re: Redskins Offense in 2009 and 2010
[quote=The Goat;656778]What determines lowest possible tender?[/quote]120% of the prior season's base salary (pro-rated bonus is not relevant).

That's the minimum, but the tender can be any number at or above the minimum. It can be $4,987,654.32. However, since the player doesn't have power of negotiation with regards to free agency, it makes the most sense for the team to tender at the lowest possible level for the compensation. In Jason Campbell's case, I believe that the minimum tender would be in excess of the 1st & 3rd round tender, so there's not a whole lot of decision to be made with him.
