Redskins to offer RFA tender to QB Jason Campbell

Redskins QB Jason Campbell

Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell will be offered a contract tender by the team, Washington head coach Mike Shanahan said at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Campbell is one of two starting quarterbacks along with Denver’s Kyle Orton who will be a restricted free agent in an uncapped 2010 season rather than an unrestricted free agent.  Campbell and Orton both have five accrued seasons which previously would have qualified them for unrestricted free agency.

“I understand it’s a process and I’m just going to let [agent] Joel [Segal] handle everything,” Campbell said in an interview with Rick Maese of the Washington Post.

Depending on the dollar value of the tender offer, the Redskins will receive draft choice compensation if Campbell signs with another club and the Redskins do not exercise their right to match.
