The Rush to Sign Jason Campbell? There Isn’t One

Campbell with new coach Jim Zorn

The Redskins seem to be in no real hurry to sign QB Jason Campbell to any sort of contract extension.  Campbell has two years left on his rookie deal, and the Washington Post reports the team has not opened any sort of talks with him or his agent.  Campbell is one of those NFL QB’s that you have no idea if he’s going to be a star or not- along the lines of the Vikings Tavaris Jackson, the Texas Matt Schaub, the Broncos Jay Cutler and the Cards Matt Leniart.

Campbell has 20 NFL games under his belt, a QB rating of 77.3.  Last season in 13 games he threw for 2700 yards with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.  He was playing fairly well until he got hurt in week 14 vs the Bears.  From there Todd Collins came in and led the Skins to the playoffs before bowing out to the Seahawks.

Flip a coin on if the Skins should give Campbell a new deal.  I would wait till the season gets rolling, see how he assumes the role of team leader in the new offense, and then go from there.  If the QB gets off to a slow start, the team can always start to look at their options for the future.
