Washington places a first-round tender on QB Jason Campbell

The Redskins have spoken about wanting to keep QB Jason Campbell in the fold, and they took another step in making that happen on Wednesday, placing a first round tender on the soon-to-be restricted free agent.

A first-round tender for a player that has been in the league five years, like Campbell, is generally around $2.621 million dollars. However, Campbell carries a higher price tag, around $3.1 million; the amount is determined by calculating 110 percent of a player’s 2009 base salary.

Campbell was the rumor of some trade talk last week, as a report said the Buffalo Bills were interested in his services. Now though it looks as if the Skins want to keep him as their starter in 2010, but don’t rule out new coach Mike Shanahan going after one of the high profile rookie QB’s in the April NFL Draft.
