Redskins tender Campbell at first-round level

Redskins tender Campbell at first-round level Posted by Michael David Smith on March 3, 2010 3:37 PM ET

The Washington Redskins have placed the first-round tender on quarterback Jason Campbell, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting.

The decision of new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to put the first-round tender, rather than the first- and third-round tender, indicates that he's open to moving on without the quarterback the Redskins chose in the first round of the 2005 draft.

If a team signs Campbell to an offer sheet, the Redskins would have seven days to match the offer or take the other team's first-round draft pick as compensation.

The first-round tender for most players with five seasons of experience is a one-year offer at a salary of $2.621 million, but Campbell's tender is for just over $3.1 million because a tender offer has to be for at least 110% of a player's 2009 base salary.

For those of you who were willing to part with a draft pick because Campbell has experience and has thrown for 3k plus yards the past 2 seasons.  I ask you now, would you still?  I know my simple answer has always been and always will be, Hell No!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
