Report: Five teams interested in Jason Campbell

It’s only a matter of time before Jason Campbell gets traded from the Redskins.

ESPN 980 in Washington reports there are five teams already interested: Buffalo, Carolina, Oakland, Jacksonville
& an unknown team
.

Keep in mind that radio station is owned by Dan Snyder, so there is plenty of self-interest in floating so many teams out there to create a market.

Still, we don’t think this will be a tough deal to pull off.  Consider that David Carr had multiple suitors as a free agent.  Campbell would have been the best free agent available by leaps and bounds.

SI’s Peter King — who had a fabulous writeup about Donte’ Stallworth Monday — guesses Campbell could be worth a fifth-rounder.  We think he’s worth more.

He’s far cheaper and younger than McNabb.  Campbell may not have the pedigree McNabb does, but we don’t think their trade value (or talent level at this point) is that different.

    I wonder if they were the other 5 teams that didnt get Mcnabb

  2. Black QB White RB says: Apr 5, 2010 10:27 AM

    I wish the Redskins were interested in Jason Campbell………………………………..Why give up that pick when Mcnabb at this point in his career ain’t gonna do that much more for you than Campbell probably could…….YOUTH is the name of the game, not age…………..oh well, every new offensive guru coach wants to have HIS guy, not the old guy, even Jimmy Johnson wanted to remove Dan Marino…………part of putting his own stamp on things…..

  3. pollacksposse says: Apr 5, 2010 10:28 AM

    Campbell in Carolina is a GREAT fit. They have an established run game and Campbell is a good game manager and can make the throws when neccessary. Major upgrade over Delhomme and Moore. Steve Smith may retract his comments from a week ago about being a complimenatery wideout once they sign a better than average QB. Problem is, this is Fox’s last year if they dont make a playoff run. A new regime will want there guy and campbell is in the same position as now.

    Raiders you better get him on a plane to cali>.

  5. twinsanity says: Apr 5, 2010 10:30 AM

    Talent level not that different? 6 Pro Bowls, 5 NFC Champ appearances vs the 2010 Tony Banks? Are you serious here?

  6. hizzle1281 says: Apr 5, 2010 10:31 AM

    I have a brilliant idea………
    Sign Mcnabb to a 2 year extention, sign Cambell to a 3 year extention, when Mcnabb is done, Campbell will have learned how to be a better QB and now you have a great QB

  7. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Apr 5, 2010 10:32 AM

    he’ll be in San Fran by thursday
    bet on it

  8. onesweetworld says: Apr 5, 2010 10:36 AM

    Donovan is gonna hurt at some point in the season, so why would they trade away their only proven back up?

  9. The_Game_Esq says: Apr 5, 2010 10:37 AM

    Conditional 4th rounder at best.

  10. dave says: Apr 5, 2010 10:39 AM

    wait a minute. are we sure that campbell isn’t still going to be the starter? shanahan told him he was

  11. swervinmervin says: Apr 5, 2010 10:39 AM

    He’s on the last year of his deal, so he cant be worth that much. And he’s been beaten to death in Washington both physically (lots of sacks and hits) and mentally with 3 coaches in 3 years. A 4th rounder at best. Anything else is stupid.
    Notice how the Raiders are mentioned as a possible destination for ALL PLAYERS. Its complete BS most of the time.

  12. pollacksposse says: Apr 5, 2010 10:41 AM

    Campbell to the Rams makes sense, that way they get a relatively young experienced vet and can draft a Suh , McCoy or Okung with their first to shore up their other deficiencies.

    “He’s far cheaper and younger than McNabb. Campbell may not have the pedigree McNabb does, but we don’t think their trade value (or talent level at this point) is that different.”
    I beg to differ. I think Campbell is far smarter than McNabb and given an actual offensive line, he could be extremely successful. It’s hard to be a good QB in the league from your back.

  15. Jeff says: Apr 5, 2010 10:44 AM

    So when Jason Campbell fails at his next destination, will the media cry that it’s because he has his 1,392nd different offensive coordinator.
    It’s like they’re all being told to read the same script when they talk about him. Heaven forbid somebody tells us he sucks.
    Apparently you can’t say that about a black quarterback.

  16. Bill In DC says: Apr 5, 2010 10:47 AM

    But hasn’t his trade value declined considerably since the McNabb trade? i would think that teams now know the Redskins may be close to desperate to ‘dump’ Campbell, especially prior to the draft ( so they can get a current pick instead of a future pick) and the offer for him would decline in recognition of that. I’d bet they don’t get anymore than a 4th round pick for him at this point.
    Of course, I also was willing to bet a considerable sum saying that the Eagles would NEVER trade McNabb to a division rival, so wtf do I know. :)

  17. Southpawd says: Apr 5, 2010 10:48 AM

    You think someones going to give a 2nd rounder for Campbell? I don’t think so, homey don’t play that.

  18. wubanga101 says: Apr 5, 2010 10:48 AM

    Well Rosenthal keep in mind that the Redskins have absolutely no leverage when it comes to trading Campbell. No team so going to pony up a pick higher than a 5th considering they know the Skins are now desperate to get rid of him. Its the perfect situation for any team that wants to trade for him.

  19. smo05d says: Apr 5, 2010 10:53 AM

    What are the chances that the unknown team is Pittsburgh?

  20. raidersteve413 says: Apr 5, 2010 10:55 AM

    he is going to the raiders

  21. kristoff says: Apr 5, 2010 10:56 AM

    campbell 2 bflo makes sense.

  22. encinitasraider says: Apr 5, 2010 10:57 AM

    let me guess the Raiders want to have 4 qbs on thier depth chart…..
    lets link the Raiders with all qb rumours please.
    lolwent 2-1 vs. Cincy, @Dallas and @Pittsburgh. The game vs. the ‘Skins was his 4th start and the game was within 3 or 4 points at halftime when he left with an injury

  23. mrogers18 says: Apr 5, 2010 10:58 AM

    preposterous to believe the skill levels are the same between McNabb and Campbell. Don’t show me the numbers from last season – you can just watch the two play. McNabb in his 30′s will have better numbers than Campbell ever puts up.

  24. cbrianwatkins says: Apr 5, 2010 11:02 AM

    Talent level the same? Have you’ve been Waking And Baking with Santonio?>

  25. ledtear says: Apr 5, 2010 11:09 AM

    >
    Now you are starting to get it! Just because someone with the team says another team is interested – DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE!! It is called creating a market…

  26. Opie says: Apr 5, 2010 11:16 AM

    @ Chapnasty2: both sides of your mouth must be awful full today…….
    skill not the same, but nice touch to get responses el 3 G’s Rosenthal

    —————-
    The problem is the Redskins are not getting the McNabb of 5-8 years ago. They are getting the 33 (will be 34 during the season), year old version of McNabb who looked pretty average over the last 8 games of 2009. Barely hit 60% completions for the year (well under 60% the latter part and vs 64% for Campbell working with far inferior WRs & a woeful O line). He’s ranked #13 by footballfocus.com. Good QB now, but hardly elite and declining, albeit slowly.
    You can’t compare McNabb of 5 years ago to Campbell of today, you have to compare McNabb of today, and yes, their talent level is comparable with Campbell at least having the possibility of improvement.

  28. raiderrob21 says: Apr 5, 2010 11:21 AM

    It wouldnt be a bad trade. He had better numbers than Mcnabb last year and on a shitty team. I say bring him to Oakland and let him compete.

  29. raiders177 says: Apr 5, 2010 11:23 AM

    I don’t see why Jacksonville. I’d rather have Garrard than Campbell.

  30. mustbechris says: Apr 5, 2010 11:23 AM

    “He’s far cheaper and younger than McNabb.”
    Yes.
    “Campbell may not have the pedigree McNabb does,”
    True.
    “but we don’t think their trade value (or talent level at this point) is that different.”
    Completely wrong.

    Incorrect. Did New England have “absolutely no leverage” when they got a 1st rounder for Drew Bledsoe? Just because it’s known that you have to get rid of a guy doesn’t mean you have no leverage. The player’s talent level and competing teams create a market, giving the owning team leverage.
    He’s far cheaper and younger than McNabb. Campbell may not have the pedigree McNabb does, but we don’t think their trade value (or talent level at this point) is that different.
    @Rosenthal: Do you work for Dan Snyder too?

  32. twinkletoes says: Apr 5, 2010 11:31 AM

    I can see him in the Silver & Black, because he throws a beautiful deep ball. I’m sure that is certain to put a glint in Undead Al’s eyes.
    (Sigh), too bad Donovan didn’t want to play for the Raiders. The weeping and gnashing of teeth continues.

  33. GingBro0710 says: Apr 5, 2010 11:44 AM

    i bet the unknown team is the team up there in Minnesota if i were them i would rather swap Tarvaris or Sage for Campbell and if thats not enough throw a late round pick he could back up favre for a year and learn the offense and then him and whoever was not dealt could battle for the starting job the year after favre retires for good

  34. DieHardFootballFan says: Apr 5, 2010 11:52 AM

    I actually want the Vikings to try and trade for him. It probably won’t cost much. He is surely an upgrade over TJack and Sage. He is still young and in my opinion is a solid player. The Redskins were a mess.
    Someone joked earlier about the amunt of OC’s he has had. Can you imagine having to learn a new offense every year of your career even dating back to Auburn. It is a very legit reason to not perform up to standard.

  35. Atlanta Love says: Apr 5, 2010 12:04 PM

    I believe Campbell is just a victim of circumstance. He has had to adjust to too many different systems. Hopefully he can go somewhere that the coaching staff is firmly in place.

  36. pats94 says: Apr 5, 2010 12:09 PM

    lets see who could usea qb like campbell
    -hawks
    -rams (will probably take bradford though)
    -49ers
    -cards
    -broncos
    -raiders
    -panthers
    -vikes (back up favre)
    -bills
    -browns
    and they should all be fighting for him cause he is a good qb with lots of room to grow, he has had average stats with the shittiest oline and receiving core in the league.

  37. Beezer says: Apr 5, 2010 12:12 PM

    Talent level the same? Campbell is very athletic with a strong arm but he is afraid to throw downfield and he is poor at reading defenses. His offensive line was terrible this past season but what every the previous four seasons? People continue to make excuses for the guy but the truth is he is an average QB at best.

  38. Speed_Blue says: Apr 5, 2010 12:12 PM

    While i may not like Donovan McNabb much, to even compare Jason Campbell to him talentwise is nonsense.

  39. KingJoe! says: Apr 5, 2010 12:18 PM

    Please now people calm down about Campbell. Shanahan is QB coach at heart. If he thought Campbell had any potentional to be good, they would not have traded for McNabb. Campbell is a at best a really good back up. He nothing more than that, and never will be. If I have to hear about how manyoffensive coordinators he has had over the last X number of years one more time i may just have an stroke. Dude has be flying that flag since before he got drafted. Face it Jason, you just aren’t good enough.

  40. tango says: Apr 5, 2010 12:24 PM

    Dead Al, get Campbell so you can stockpile 3 journeymean QB’s and one complete and total idiot in Ja Junk. ” Commitment to Excellence ” in it’s finest form !! Can’t wait to renew my season tickets if you pull the trigger on this one !

  41. CaptainFantastik says: Apr 5, 2010 12:34 PM

    Jason Cambell is not a starting NFL QB. The Skins won’t get anything more than MAYBE a 4th round pick for him. This sounds like when a player’s agent tells the media that “5 teams are interested in my client”……kinda like how Rosenhouse said about T.O. before he was forced to sign with Buffalo.

  42. scrapdawg12 says: Apr 5, 2010 12:38 PM

    Buffalo and Oakland are tied into every QB situation. They would take Joe Theisman if he would want to come back at the age of 60, lol.

  43. Mangy66 says: Apr 5, 2010 12:39 PM

    4th rounder. That’s where I had his value pegged.
    But, would LOVE for a team like Oakland to step up and give us a 3rd.

  44. Vox is an Idiot says: Apr 5, 2010 12:52 PM

    Jason Campbell to the Eagles for the 4th pick in the 2nd rd!

  45. Beezer says: Apr 5, 2010 12:56 PM

    When Campbell is traded he will have another mediocre year, assuming he actually gets to play, and once again the same excuse will be made for his poor performance which is he had a new offensive coordinator. I have never seen a quarterback throw passes on third down short of the first down marker as often as Campbell. The only big plays Campbell has ever made was when Santana Moss or Chris Cooley turned a 4 yard pass into a big gain.

  46. antneejay2 says: Apr 5, 2010 12:59 PM

    I would have liked to see him involved in the McNabb trade. The Eagles don’t have a good backup QB.

  47. antneejay2 says: Apr 5, 2010 1:00 PM

  48. GoCaps8 says: Apr 5, 2010 1:03 PM

    If they don’t get at least a 4th rounder for him, they should keep him for this year.
    The Redskins have plenty of malcontents but few draft picks. I think they will be very busy through draft day. If they offered Haynesworth and Landry to the Eagles, those two are available, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see either Cooley or Fred Davis moved. Carlos Rogers wants out. Portis isn’t happy with the Parker and Johnson signings. I think the Skins will be picking up some mid-round picks for these guys, restocking the offensive line and getting a better locker room too.

  49. johnnie m says: Apr 5, 2010 1:06 PM

    Redskins will still draft Bradford if he is available. Trade Campbell and you have the QB of the future in the upcoming draft.

  50. AheezyBaby says: Apr 5, 2010 1:15 PM

    I hear alot of chatter but nothing of importance…campbell will be traded and don’t be surprised if Rex Grossman beats out McNabb for the starting job. Haha Sexy Rexy good luck DC

  51. MrDManley says: Apr 5, 2010 1:22 PM

    Word is David Carr has looked awful in SF workouts already. Skins trade 4th pick + Campbell to Niners for 13th & 17th picks? Niners could potentially get a dominant player, Skins could still take Clausen to develop behind McNabb plus whichever of the tackles make it out of the top 10.

  52. Lost says: Apr 5, 2010 1:23 PM

    Vike aren’t interested in Campbell because the guy they’ve had in their system is too close a clone. Vike are actually interested in moving either T-Jax who was given a 3rd round tender. The lack of offers is telling.
    Campbell and Jackson are similar although Jason has some advantages. Both are mobile but have been developed as game managers. T-Jax has accuracy issues underneath. Campbell has less accuracy downfield.
    Campbell is a couple of years older and a couple inches taller. Jackson better thrower running to left side. Slight edge goes to Campbell due to more playing time. T-Jax may have better career potential but has been so throttled down its difficult to determine. Both are better options than highly touted and scouted QBs available in this year’s draft

  53. palewook says: Apr 5, 2010 1:52 PM

    lots of teams could use him, browns & vikes are some more not on the above list.

  54. spliffbunker says: Apr 5, 2010 2:12 PM

    I wish Jason Campbell all the best…everytime I have seen him he was running for his life & I thought he might really thrive under Shanahan ala Jake Plummer
    judging from the Redskins comments here a fresh start is probably for the best…I think he has some skills & I wish the Broncos has gone after him a year ago when they lost their minds
    he showed me a lot during all that Cutler/draft talk…it would be a nice change in the NFL to see a class act succeed

  55. shaggytoodle says: Apr 5, 2010 2:59 PM

    My guess is the Packers to back up A-Rod, McCarthy is pretty decent with QBs, and TT wouldn’t ever let anyone know. TT is a ninja, doesn’t speak just shuts up does his job, and before you know it Packers are making deep playoff pushes.

  56. 1NationRaiderNation says: Apr 5, 2010 4:33 PM

    oh i think it must be that unnamed team…such a crock of crap.

  57. mwcarolina says: Apr 5, 2010 6:55 PM

    “I beg to differ. I think Campbell is far smarter than McNabb and given an actual offensive line, he could be extremely successful”
    yeah, tell that to Aaron Rodgers, wait a minute, with a poor offensive line he was still great!!!! sorry, but the ONLY way Campbell is good is if he throws 20 or less times in a game, he’s a game manager, if he throws 30 times, then most likely, the team he’s on, loses.

  58. raider_from_az says: Apr 6, 2010 12:29 AM

    i hope he ends up in oakland. he’s worth a 3rd at least and a HHHHUUUUGGGGEEE!! upgrade over russells fat ass.

  59. Pantherfan10 says: Apr 6, 2010 2:46 PM

    Panthers would be better off with Bulger than Campbell…

  60. BigBacon says: Apr 7, 2010 2:51 PM

    Pantherfan10, you honestly tink Bulger is a better QB than Campbell? Bulger hasn’t done anything but suck since he got his payday, Campbell atleast has upside.
