Redskins Expect to Tender Offer to Campbell


Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said on Friday he expects the club to tender quarterback Jason Campbell next week.

"I do expect him to be on the roster come mini-camp," Shanahan said.

Shanahan made the comments during a media session at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Shanahan added that he is still evaluating Campbell.

"I'm still in the process, you know," he said.

Concerning speculation the Redskins will draft a QB with the fourth pick, Shanahan said: "You know, I don't even listen to that stuff anymore."

Campbell is expected to be a restricted free agent on March 5, the first day of NFL free agency.

The only uncertainty is what level the team will tender Campbell.

In restricted free agency, teams can tender offers at certain levels that allow them to receive compensation in the form of draft picks if a player signs with another team.

"Just wait, it'll be an exciting time for you," Shanahan joked when asked what level the team would tender Campbell.

Playing in an offense that struggled in 2009, Campbell consistently posted solid numbers.

He completed 327-of-507 passes, a 64.5 percent clip, for 3,618 yards, 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. His QB rating was 86.4.

He was sacked 41 times behind an injury-plagued offensive line.
