Lol skins don't have a good roster outside of 4-5 players. We need a foundation before we overpay in free agency.

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

I've actually been surprised lately how seriously NFL teams take scouting high school and college players in their back yard. Obviously Campbell is a pretty easy connection given that he played at Maryland but I've seen a couple of examples lately of players that went out of state to go to college and ended up signing modest contracts with their local pro team from their high school days. Sure they usually get cut before the season starts but thats besides the point.

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

I remember when Skins fans were crying for the team to draft him in the 2nd round...lol It's a good thing they don't run the team. Here we are today with the guy on the squad (however brief it may be) and for dirt cheap.

It's better than overpaying like the Raiders did Saffold.(who I believe will be playing guard)

42.5 million, $21 million guaranteed, over five years

Typical Raider move. I know they have a ton of loot to blow but c'mon.

Holy crap, I mean Saffold is certainly a good player but that contract seems a little on the high end. And by high I mean reefers......because thats what the Raiders front office does.....since pot is like legal.....in California....I think....not sure....really not sure where I'm going with this.......

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

I honestly think the Raiders just threw a big number on the table for Safford because this year teams have to be spending at least 90% of their cap. Being forced to spend + a lot of cap room to fill + a player you desire = huge win for Saffold.

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

The 89% is over 4 years (2013-2016), but yes they do need to spend, but why not spend on their own guys?

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

Raiders will regret that contract just like every free agent contract they've done. Campbell is good, but he has to get healthy.

Actually, they are safe from that deal. Saffold failed his physical so it's a no go.

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

I heard there might be a problem with Bruce Campbell and his physical (imagine that). Can anyone confirm he signed a contract?

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

Per John Keim didn't sign contract because rotator cuff surgery not fully recovered.

Re: Redskins sign young tackle Bruce Campbell

I'll actually be kinda bummed if we can't eventually get Campbell due to RE Rotator Cuff injury on his physical. Great Athlete, if he ever learned how to block he could be really promising. Never hurts to have young athletes. Was a really Low Risk potentially High reward signing.
