Rumors of the Redskins shopping QB Jason Campbell surface

There’s been plenty of chatter about the return in 2010 of Jason Campbell to the Redskins. It seems that despite never doing much of anything good in his NFL career, new coach Mike Shanahan is ready to see what Campbell can do once again under center. Maybe.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post was having dinner with old co-worker Jason La Canfora Wednesday night, and they both were talking about a rumor about Campbell being sent off to the Buffalo Bills:

we both were busy checking out rumors about a potential Redskins trade that supposedly would send Jason Campbell, a restricted free agent, to the Buffalo Bills for safety Donte Whitner and a draft pick. The Campbell-Whitner talk has been out there a while and really got rolling on a Buffalo Bills message board recently.

The Bills need a QB, and Campbell is a guy that could come in and take the starting job right away. In his career in 52 games, Campbell has a QB rating of 82.3, and has thrown for 10,860 yards with 55 touchdowns and 38 picks. Stay tuned to see if there is smoke on this rumor soon.

    Jason MUST GO

    All i have for 5 years is potential. People keep saying its not him thats the problem its the line. I say the problem is him, he just does not what it takes to be an NFL starting QB, He does noy think fast enough and holds the ball to long. This guy is no QB.

    you are right on the mark concerning campbell.
    the justification for his so-so performance has always been that he has had to cope with several new systems in his career. i’m sorry but a QB at this level should be able to deal with and adapt to change.
    also, an NFL QB should be able to cope with injuries on the O line.
    in short, he focuses on his primary receiver and uses poor overall judgement.
    i would rather go with someone like bradford or try to develop brennan.
