ESPN Insider, Adam Schefter reported this morning on the
Mike and Mike show that Jason Campbell will remain with the Washington Redskins
for the 2010 season. Word of advice for Redskin fans Schefter was Shanahan’s
guy when he worked with the Denver Post and covered the Broncos so this is pretty
solid info. Schefter went on to say that the Redskins will still draft a QB
within the first two rounds which means they are not entirely set to draft a QB
at the 4 spot. This will be great news for the Redskins fans that want
offensive linemen to be the focus of the draft. I believe it means that the
Redskins are keeping their options open. That is a good thing.
Chief’s House Writer,
Scuba said in response to my article on the Redskins
draft and I quote “I agree with you about the number of picks. However, having
Shanahan in the AFC west for a number of years I have learned one thing:
Shanahan likes his quarterbacks. If Shanahan has a chance, I think he will pull
the trigger on Bradford, and maybe that might not be until later in the draft.
Personally I hope you take him with the 4th pick so the Chiefs can take Okung”
I figured Okung would not last very long if the Redskins did not take him. Many scouts believe based on the Senior Bowl practices and workouts that Jimmy Clausen
might be a step or two ahead of Sam Bradford.
I was speaking to a Vikings writer yesterday
afternoon that believes should the Vikings fail to get McNabb they could make an
offer for Campbell as they think really highly of him and the numbers he put up
despite the state of the Redskins organization. Just goes to show that things
are a lot different outside of the Redskin bubble. Jason Campbell is a
restricted free agent so the Redskins will tender him an offer. If another team
wants him the Redskins have the right to match or to receive draft picks as
J.I. Halsell, Inside
the Cap Writer, NFL Salary Cap Expert and former employee of the Washington
Redskins was on the Sports Fix program on ESPN 980 yesterday. He explained the
ramifications of an uncapped year which is a certainty. He went on to talk
about the Redskins situation in particular. Based on what I heard it appears this is the year to dump dead weight with the least amount of penalty. Click

Schefter also reported that the most likely landing spot for
Michael Vick is St. Louis. I was thinking Vick would land in Jacksonville,
Carolina or St. Louis. Schefter added that although Andy Reid stated that
Donovan McNabb will be back that Philly could get offers from either the
Vikings or Cardinals that could change his mind. Obviously the Cardinals interest shows they have some doubts about Matt Leinart.
