horrible, meddling owner. horrible head coach. that may have accurately described the 2008 and 2009 redskins, but its no longer the case here. i'm pretty sure no one will trade anything of value for campbell unless that team gets a reasonable assurance from campbell that he'd sign an extension with the team. no way campbell does that with oakland.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I agree. If he doesn't mind the bitter slice of humble pie that comes with the #2 QB slot, i would LOVE him backing up Donovan McNabb. Unless the o-line is drasticly improved, McNabb won't last that long. Not that he's a stranger to 40+ sack seasons, he isn't getting younger. I just guess we'll have to wait and hope we do a lot during the time of the draft with rookies and trades to get a better o-line for McNabb

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

this is a good thread, considering the lull before the draft. for all those that don't want to talk about JC at least it's not the same old he's good v. get rid of him debate; we're now talking about what's best for him more so than the skins.

I like the intent of the first post; that his career will be better if he stays. Given McNabb's age & potential for injury the #2 job here might see some serious time. I'm hoping that he stays & ends up winning some games for us, reclaims the starting job & re-signs. I realize that is highly unlikely though.

At this point it's purely fate as to how his career pans out, he's not good enough to excel in sub-par circumstances, such as he's had here. I think the possibilities have been thrown out there in this thread & when you look around the league, Oakland really is the most in need. Cleveland I guess is too. He's young, so what looks bad now might be alright in a couple of years. I don't see any team giving him much more than a 2 year deal either, so if & when he leaves DC, there's a good chance it won't be his last time going to another team.

That would not be the case, Panthers have a line that I wish we have. The running game has to be one of the top 3 in football. They do however have only one receiver.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I believe the Panthers are committed to Matt Moore for the foreseeable future, and the Raiders like Gronkowski. I don't think any teams will give him a real shot at winning a starting role this year, except maybe as a caretaker to a high draft pick. I think he may want to leave just because of everything that happened here, but if he really looks around the league, he might realize this is his best option. I think Shanahan really wants him here as a dependable back-up and capable starter. He is not worth trading for a 4th round pick in my opinion.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

Big,

Denver may not be interested in him, it's more about what we could package to get Marshall, ie; JC & Landry for Marshall.

It was my understanding JC was interested in Carolina cause they had a decent OL and were far better then the other teams, besides Denver.

Bills simply need a QB.

Raiders are not totally content with Russel. JC would be a nice back up or starter if Russel falters.

I forgot about the Jaguars. They too could use a decent QB.

My problem is I see him as being worth a 1st round pick. He's started for us for how many yrs now? He's a starter. But then I take my reality check pill and realize no one is going to give that for him. We need a 2nd round pick and 3rd round pick to fill out our draft. Other then that I'd keep him and make him a glorified back up and hope McNabb doesn't get hurt but know we have a very good backup.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

Jason's contract was just extended for a year. Of course he could still be traded, but if not, he's ours for another season.

Jason Campbell

Redskins re-signed restricted free agent QB Jason Campbell to a one-year, $3.14 million contract.

Campbell, 28, posted career highs in completion rate (64.5), touchdown passes (20), passing yards (3,618), and yards-per-attempt average (7.1) last season. He'd be an upgrade as a starter for numerous teams, and will be on the trade block over draft weekend. In search of an athletic passer with a big enough arm to cut through the Buffalo wind, the Bills should have Campbell on their radar. The Raiders, Jaguars, and Panthers may also have interest.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

My biggest concern with the QB position now is in having the best back-up that we can get. I think Campbell is that guy, but am worried that either Shanahan will 'give' him away for a meaningless pick, or Campbell strongly requests a trade to get away from DC.
A quality back-up QB is a huge 'need' for any team, but especially for us with an aging, injury prone McNabb, and a less than stellar offensive line.

In my opinion, a 3rd round pick is a quality pick where we can expect to get a starter, but when you get into the 4th or later rounds, we're dealing with back-ups and special teamers. Many teams will spend a 2nd or 3rd round pick just to get a quality back-up QB.
Shanahan should keep Campbell, and Jason should choose to stay here and compete.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

if campbell stays, then that means Shanahan can't draft a late round QB to groom, as McNabb and Grossman are locks to make the final roster. that said, you make good points about Campbell potentially having more value to this team as a backup than a 4th or 5th round draft pick.
