Redskins trade Jason Campbell to Oakland


Updated 1:12 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 Campbell, it was believed the Redskins received the Raiders' sixth-rounder -- the 190th overall -- in addition to another late-round pick.

The Redskins had entered the draft with a league-low four picks but will walk out of it with at least six new players.

As for Campbell, a career in Washington that began five years ago with so much promise will move 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 this afternoon. "I'm ready to get to work."

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 impressive 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.

Jason Campbell is an Oakland Raider

The Washington Redskins have traded quarterback Jason Campbell to the Oakland Raiders.

It's been expected that Campbell would be traded since the Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb, and trade talk between the Redskins and Raiders heated up today. Rick Maese of the Washington Post was the first to report that the trade is complete.

There's no immediate word on what the Redskins got from the Raiders for Campbell, although Maese suggests that it may have been Oakland's pick No. 190 and either No. 215 or No. 251 overall. Not a lot of compensation for a former first-round draft pick, but then again the Redskins didn't have a lot of leverage, as everyone knew Campbell was on the way out.

In Oakland, Campbell has to be considered the favorite to win the starting job over JaMarcus Russell, Kyle Boller, Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye.

I would have rather kept him as a backup then traded him for a 6th.

He's doomed. No O-Line, no recievers. It's a QB's dream.

Sad to see him go. I really liked the man. Didn't win us many games, but a stellar character of a man. Will be interesting to see how he holds up in Oakland... I wish him nothing but the best in his career.
