Time to extend Jason Campbell?

Last year we extended contracts for key players...such as Cooley and Betts.
These moves were highly praised.
I know a few here think Campbell may not be our long term answer because of his winning record....However, I do believe he is solid and will improve.

The best time to buy is when perceived value is low.
The last thing we want to do is wait until after he has a breakout year to double his value.

At worst, he will not improve...which is still better than any QB the Skins have had since Brad Johnson...(excluding Collins' 4 game push and Brunell for a short time)

What do you think?
Should we use our 07 cap space to lock up JC?

Schneed....what is his likely value now and can it work with the cap space we have?

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

I would look to extend him sometime during the season as long as he's shown that he's taking his game to the next level.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

There is still 2 years left on his deal. Lets see how he does this season.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

If I'm not mistaken JC is slated to earn a pretty large base salary this year. I wouldn't mind extending him, but he really hasn't done anything yet to warrant a hefty extension/signing bonus.

I agree, but if he has a break out season, then we may be in trouble. I am not sure what the rules are, but I would like to see them extend Montgomery, Golston and Doughty, before they become restricted free agents.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

Yea like others I see absolutely no need to rush extending his contract. Right now he hasn't proven he deserves it and both sides(JC and the Front Office) know that.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

Until the OCHO 5 stories, I figured that they were getting cap space in order to re-sign JC. Maybe that was part of it as well.

This labor problem doesn't bode well for re-signing him this year. IN 2 years, unless a new deal is struck, they could be looking at no cap. His agent would tell him to wait I would think.

Montgomery, I can see...the other 2 are easily replaced and none are pressing issues right now...
The cost risk of a breakout season for these 3 vs JC is significant.

The benefit of extending Campbell before a breakout saves a tremendous amount more than a breakout for these guys....and there is still flop potential for Golson and Doughty.

This is a good point....good thing Skins have most of our folks locked up....
I am worried about how this new labor problem will affect ability to extend contracts.....heck....that could potentially affect us signing free agents or making trades too.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

Jason Campbell is under contract for two more seasons, 2008 and 2009. His base salaries those years are $1.2 million and $800K respectively.

Deciding whether or not to extend him largely depends upon your opinion of him. Is he your franchise QB of the future or not?

I'd think right now he'd garner a deal similar to the one Derek Anderson just got from the Browns. He got 3 years, $24 million, with $13 million of it guaranteed. Campbell seems like a guy with a ton of promise who you can trust to lead your team, but he hasn't shown enough to commit to him for the long term. Hence the Derek Anderson comparison - a three year deal would seem to fit. I think that's a solid comparison in terms of value.

That said, we couldn't afford that contract on our cap right now. $24 million over 3 years, even if backloaded, is going to eat up too much space this coming season for us to still fit our rookies under the cap. So we'd probably have to wait until 2009 anyway.

But the Browns made that move because Anderson was a pending free agent. Since Campbell's under contract, and given our cap situation, it makes more sense to me that we let him play under his current contract this year. Then in 2009 we'll have one more season on which to judge, and at that point we can make the decision to extend him or move on.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

im with schneed on this. we need to see more out of Campbell before we lock up any more money in him. and with him already under contract for the next 2 seasons, at a good cap figure, lets make him earn his money

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

Don't count on JC gettin re-signed before the new coaching staff has a chance to see what he does in a real game? This is one of the times when the FO and the coaching staff has to come together to evaluate which direction we want to go as a team. I realize there aren't many franchise QB's out there to choose from but maybe Jim Zorn doesn't see JC as the perfect fit for his system, which Gibbs did view him as, just yet.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

The poor guy always has a new offense to run. Give him a year in Zorn's offense, and let him decide.

Re: Time to extend Jason Campbell?

NFL contracts escalate from year to year, so the only way it make sense to do a deal in a year before you have to is if you can trade the player his guaranteed security for a few more years at a reasonable price.

If we could get Campbell to extend his deal by two years, at say 9 million dollars total, this would be a great deal for us. But there's no reason to pay him like a Franchise QB until this time next season.
